"I want to start a fund/foundation to make sure his child and family are well taken care of not just temporary but for life," Uzi wrote on Twitter (after his passing, XXXTentacion's mother Cleopatra Bernard revealed that the rapper's girlfriend was pregnant).

Stars like Nicki Minaj, Lil Yachty, and Ski Mask The Slump God expressed their support soon after Uzi's initial tweet. "I could handle this Alone but I just wanna make sure if anything happens to me Yall hit my Mommy up like yall hit for features," Uzi wrote. Read the tweets below:

Last Sunday, Bernard asked fans to donate one dollar to the XXXTentacion Foundation, benefitting "various charities."
