    The Grammy Awards are known for honoring music’s best living artists while also paying homage to music industry luminaries that have passed away. On Sunday night (Feb. 10), the 2019 Grammy Awards' tribute to the industry’s fallen soldiers included the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin, Mac Miller and Avicii, among others. However, the in memoriam segment didn’t include XXXTentacion, who was tragically shot and killed in a robbery on June 18, 2018.

    While producers for the Grammys haven't offered up any reason for their decision not to include X in their in memoriam segment, it could have something to do with his controversial past. At the time of his death, X had been facing some serious allegations of domestic violence. Those allegations had seen him placed in jail from October 2016 to March 2017.


    While X's alleged past of violence made him a polarizing figure in the music industry, his accomplishments are undeniable. During his short, yet impactful career, the American Music Awards trophy winner released two solo albums, including 17 and ?. Both have been certified platinum. Singles like “fukk Love,” “Look At Me!” and “Sad!" have also locked in platinum plaques for the Members Only leader, who wasn't nominated for any awards at the 2019 Grammy Awards.

    See tweets about X's conspicuous absence from the 2019 Grammy Awards in Memoriam segment for yourself below.

    Extensions fans are almost as weird as him. He wasn't some 2pac figure. He was beating pregnant women. And making mediocre emo music. God bless the dead but time to forget about him
