Four days before XXXTENTACION was gunned down in what’s believed to be a “random robbery”, two of his songs — “Changes” featuring PnB Rock and “SAD!” — were certified platinum by the RIAA.

Both tracks come from his last album, ?, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart following its March 2018 release.

PnB Rock penned an emotional tribute to his late collaborator on Instagram, alongside a video of how “Changes” was made.

“Just found out me and bro went ‘Platinum’ wit this record… it’s not even the same tho because i didn’t get a feelin of happiness when i heard but instead i just cried because we ain’t even get to share our moment together… So figured I’d share this video with y’all and share this moment with THE FANS & supporters ! to show y’all how we created it.”

“he’s so musical man it was amazing working with this guy and his spirit was just unmatchable… this was my brother. he checked me when i did stupid shit & i truly miss him for so many other reasons. Ya name gon live forever bro.”

The two rappers had collaborated on numerous tracks over the past couple of years, including “Everyday We Lit.”
