"Dude, How Old Even Am I?"

Gekyume Onfroy, son of late rapper XXXTentacion, is a graduate! The youngster’s mom, Jenesis Sanchez took to Instagram earlier this week with celebration for her son’s latest accomplishment.


Jenesis uploaded a picture of Gekyume standing next to blocks that spelled out “Grad.” The youngster was also surrounded by balloons that commemorated the occasion. “Steppin’ in his lemon peps,” Sanchez said of her son’s style.

Many could not believe that Gekyume was a graduate this commencement season. “Dude, how old even am I,” one social media follower asked after seeing the picture of the youngster. “Look at him so big,” another fan exclaimed. “Congrats.”

Some remember when Jenesis Sanchez’s expectancy of a son was revealed to the world. The news came months after Gekyume’s father was murdered in June 2018. XXXTentacion’s mother, Cleopatra Bernard, announced Jenesis’ pregnancy.

“He left us a final gift,” Bernard told supporters online. “I’m so happy,” one fan said of Jenesis’ pregnancy. “He may become a legend like X was,” another Instagram follower added.

XXXTentacion was killed just as his career in the music industry was rising. The 20-year-old was known for having difficult conversations about humanity in public, which is why so many flocked to his music.

“I’ve been fighting since I was a kid,” X said during an interview with No Jumper. Some of XXXTentacion’s biggest fights included those in which he dismissed feminism.

A few called the rapper out for accusing women of being the cause of their plight in the world. Still, X was able to garner millions to support him during what turned out to be a short-lived music career.

Jenesis celebrated Gekyume’s fifth birthday in January. “He is getting so big so fast,” one fan said in reference to the youngster’s growth. ‘He was just a baby,” the supporter continued. “You are doing a wonderful job,” the fan noted.

“I know a dad who is very proud of his little mom and his son,” another Instagram follower said in reference to Gekyume’s father. “Long Lives XXXTentacion.”
