  • Like XXXTentacion, Dedrick was an avid fan of motorcycles and ATV’s. He had been a frequent visitor to the shop which XXX was killed.
  • Dedrick is also a father he has a 4-year-old son.
  • Dedrick killed Xxxtentacion not because of a rivalry since they didn’t charge him with premeditation
  • Tattoo Man Chucky didn’t go absent from social media, after allegedly murdering XXXTentacion his latest post was from 6/20 less than 24 hours after the murder. He actually gained 1000 followers since his arrest..... sad

XXXTenatacion's death is definitely tragic and I hope this arrest serves as justice for his family, but we also have to remember that Dedrick has the right to be considered innocent until proven guilty.  People are frying him in the comment section on his Instagram page below, with no evidence that he committed this crime. These are two young lives lost for absolutely nothing, Dedricks' son doesn't have a father, and XXX's mother doesn't have a son. RIP XXXTentacion.
