About

Drake Killed XXXTentacion Theory refers to a conspiracy theory that rapper Drake (Aubrey Graham) conspired in the murder of late rapper XXXTentacion (Jahseh Onfroy) in 2018. The theory predominantly stems from an Instagram story that XXXTentacion posted a few months before he died that read, "IF ANYONE TRIES TO KILL ME IT WAS @champagnepapi IM SNITCHING RN." Around that time, XXXTentacion and his fans blamed Drake for stealing the late rapper's flow. Others linked to lyrics on Drake's 2018 song "I'm Upset" that read, "triple X / That's the only time I ever shoot below the neck." In early 2023, Drake was subpoenaed in the XXXTentacion murder trial. The subpoena sparked curiosity and furthered the theory. In May 2024, amid Drake and Kendrick Lamar's feud, the theory resurfaced en masse related to the other serious allegations levied against Drake.

Lyrics On Drake's "I'm Upset"

On May 16th, 2018, Drake's album Scorpion was released, including the song "I'm Upset."[2] A lyric in the song was, "SMS, triple X / That's the only time I ever shoot below the neck / Why you keep on shootin' if you know that nigga dead?" On June 13th, 2018, Drake posted the song's music video to YouTube,[3] receiving over 116.3 million views in six years. At the video's 2:20-minute mark, Drake says the aforementioned lyrics (shown below).



A few days after the music video's upload, on June 18th, 2018, XXXTentacion was shot and killed outside of Riva Motorsports in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.[4] On that day, X[5] user @TastyCans tweeted two images that were XXXTentacion's Instagram Story and Drake's "triple X" lyrics on "I'm Upset." @TastyCans started the theory, speculating that XXXTentacion knew secret information about Drake, which resulted in his murder. The tweet received roughly 24,000 likes in six years (shown below).

On the day of XXXTentacion's death, others online tried to debunk the theory, such as X[6] user @ozairboucher on June 18th, 2018 (shown below), who alleged that Drake was talking about sending nudes in his song "I'm Upset," akin to the full lyrics reading, "End up gettin' loose and gettin' pictures from my ex / SMS, triple X / That's the only time I ever shoot below the neck."
