Diplo: ‘it was one of XXXTentacion’s goals to get me & Skrillex to finish his next album’

Diplo was one of the many artists who took to social media to express his surprise at the sudden death of rapper XXXTentacion, who was shot while shopping for motorcycles in South Florida on June 18.

“He had the biggest imagination,” Diplo wrote in an extended Instagram post in memory of the late artist, in which the electronic veteran noted that XXXTentacion hoped to collaborate with both Diplo and Skrillex on the production of the rapper’s next album. “He texted me this weekend, it was one of his goals to get me & Skrillex to finish his next album,” Diplo notes, “I invited him to LA this week. I was wondering if he was gonna come.”

Like XXXTentacion, Diplo also grew up largely within the South Florida area.
