In 2016-2017, XXXTentacion gained wide popularity in social networks due to its evocative image, several convictions and provocative music.

Judging by the list of cities and geotags, listeners of rapper went to the action in Moscow, Krasnoyarsk, Perm, Apatity, Novosibirsk, Pskov, Ulan-Ude and other cities.
Judging by the records in the community of listeners from Moscow, the US embassy security guards asked them to leave and threatened to call the police. The organizers asked the participants to go to Gorky Park, as they “talked to the administration”. One of them told that the police asked questions, but did not interfere with the action.
The police were initially concerned about our meeting, but everything went peacefully and calmly. Many people came, laid flowers, photographs of the artist, posters, candles. They sang songs. People were on emotions.
