New York — Seven months after XXXTentacion (ex-ex-ex-ten-TAH'-see-YOHN') was killed, the rapper's son has been born.

Jenesis Sanchez, XXXTentacion's girlfriend, gave birth on Saturday to baby boy Gekyume Onfroy. The birth was announced in a statement on Saturday evening by XXXTentacion's mother Cleopatra Bernard.

Gekyume's name is derived from a word the rapper created prior to his passing. His family defined it as meaning "a different state" or "next universe of thought."

The 20-year-old rising star, whose real name is Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, was fatally shot in June in Florida in what authorities called a robbery attempt.
