A picture has now surfaced on social media of West wearing a white t-shirt with a print of a photo of XXXTentacion on the front.
The rapper wore the shirt during a short performance he staged with his Kids See Ghosts collaborator Kid Cudi at the Los Candiles Night Club in LA last night (16 August), which was hosting a party for the designer and director Willo Perron.
West wore the XXXTentacion-featuring shirt underneath a yellow hoodie at the event, with Memphis rapper Gangster Boo later uploading a picture of herself and West at the party.
Meanwhile, the investigation into the murder of XXXTentacion continues with four suspects currently being held on a charge of first-degree murder.
Earlier this week, suspect Robert Allen – who has pleaded not guilty to a number of charges, including first degree murder, robbery and drug possession – submitted a request to return home to care for his pregnant fiancée while he awaits trial.
