An eyewitness told TMZ how the rapper, real name Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, had no pulse:
TMZ later reported:
The 20-year-old rapper was shopping for motorcycles in South Florida and, as he was leaving the motorcycle dealer, a gunman ran up to his vehicle and shot him.
XXX was in his share of feuds … but, as far as we know, there were no ominous fights between him and anyone else.
He’s had serious legal trouble … he’s awaiting trialfor domestic violence against his pregnant girlfriend. He’s facing more than a dozen felony charges. Prosecutors accused him of witness tampering.
XXX was on house arrest but the judge recently let him out so he could tour.
XXX has had real success … his last album debuted at #1.
His music may not be to old school fans’ liking, but he was hugely popular and some of his songs have racked up hundreds of millions of views on YouTube, like this one, which is a tune to be fair:
It always sucks when something like this happens. Thoughts and prayers with Onfroy’s family.
XXXTentacion also went viral off the back of a truly insane video in which he got attacked on stage by a rival rapper with whom he had longstanding beef.
