Where does gekyume come from?
Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy, known as XXXTentacion, was an influential and controversial American hip-hop artist who created hit music in 2017–18 and who was tragically murdered in June 2018.
In March 2018, XXXTentacion explained on Instagram: “I’m going to make up a new word, and the word is ‘gekyume.’ I’m in the next ‘gekyume’ of thinking.” His family (and Urban Dictionary) have also defined it as a “different state” or “next universe of thought.” The word was featured as the name of a mysterious, hooded, prophet-like figure (who imparts wisdom from a kind of other dimension) speaks to in the popular video to his hit song “Sad!” released shortly after his death in June 2018.
In January 2019, XXXTentacion’s girlfriend gave birth a boy, named Gekyume. Not not long after, she explained that XXXTentacion created gekyume from the names of characters in his favorite video game, Kingdom Hearts. She also explained that she chose Gekyume to honor XXXtentacion’s legacy and wishes.
After Gekyume‘s birth, people on social media created and shared absurdist (and often provocative) memes about him, many of which focused on his circumcision as a kind of major public event everyone is excited about.

Who uses gekyume?
Some people use Gekyume in XXXTentacion’s original sense for when you feel are reaching or striving for “another plane” (gekyume) of existence or a “higher state” (gekyume) of being.
Unlock my mind and capture my soul. This is what will be happening tonight. To quote the late xxxtentacion, I want to reach an entire new gekyume of thinking. That is what I would like to achieve

Others use Gekyume for XXXTentacion’s son in admiration of the child and family.

Finally, Gekyume appears in memes on social media, usually as the subject of odd, not-so-tasteful jokes and made-up stories about his circumcision.
