His lawyer, David Bogenschutz, let it known that he advised the late rapper increase his security detail prior to his death when he spoke to Sun-Sentinel earlier yesterday about the murder.
He explained that before his death, he suggested the rapper increase the security detail around him as he gained more fame. He said that XXXtentaion refused to carry a firearm on him.
“We talked about him needing security, that he was past the point of being a kid making melodies on a street corner,” Bogenschutz said.
He said that XXXtentaion was making the right moves to change his name life around. “I took a personal interest in him, I liked him. He was a kid, 19, when I first met him.”
“The incredibly sad thing about this is this kid had turned his life around since November. It was amazing, the turnaround. He was on a real upward track” he said.
