Who Was Jocelyn Flores, Was She A Real Person?

Although it now exists in a song named after her, Jocelyn Flores was as real as possible. She was born into a modest religious family on July 2, 2000, in the Bronx. She was also raised in her birthplace where her father Benji Flores (a barber) made a living.

Jocelyn’s life became dangerously traumatic when at the age of four she lost her father to a chronic illness that was too costly for the family to treat. To add salt to her injury she faced the difficult task of explaining to her family that she had been assaulted by a parent.

XXXTENTACION Lyrics – JOCELYN FLORES

I know you so well, so well
I mean, I can do anything that he can
I’ve been pretty
I know you’re somewhere, somewhere
I’ve been trapped in my mind girl, just holding on
I don’t wanna pretend there’s something, we’re nothing
I’ve been stuck thinking ’bout her, I can’t hold back
I’m in pain, wanna put ten shots in my brain
I’ve been tripping ’bout some things, can’t change
Suicidal, same time I’m tame
Picture this, in bed, get a phone call
Girl that you f***** with killed herself
That was this summer and nobody helped
And ever since then, man, I hate myself
Wanna f****** end it
Pessimistic
All wanna see me with no pot to piss in
But n***** been excited ’bout the grave I’m digging
Having conversations about my haste decisions
F***** sickening
At the same time, memory surfaced through the grapevine
‘Bout my uncle playing with a slipknot
Post traumatic stress got me f***** up
Been f***** up since a couple months they had a n**** locked up
I be feeling pain, I be feeling pain just to hold on
And I don’t feel the same, I’m so numb
I be feeling pain, I be feeling pain just to hold on
And I don’t feel the same, I’m so numb
I know you so well, I know you well
I mean, I can do anything that he can
I’ve been pretty
