"His family is honoured to fulfil his wish and shower baby Gekyume with love", a joint statement by Sanchez and the rapper's mother, Cleopatra Bernard, read. His girlfriend, Jenesis Sanchez, who was pregnant at the time of X's death in June, gave birth to a baby boy named Gekyume Onfroy on Saturday (Jan. 26).

In a statement obtained by People magazine, the family said XXXTentacion "specifically" chose the name for his first-born son.

The 24-track album was released on Spotify on January 23, which would have been the star's 21st birthday.

It was by way of an Instagram Story upload on X's page that the news was announced with the simple message "Yume has officially arrived", ending with the emoji of baby. The Blast then went on to report that Gekyume is a word allegedly coined by XXXTentacion that means "different state" or "next universe of thought".
