Florida rapper XXXTentacion has died at 20

XXXTentacion

The rapper, real name Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, was reportedly leaving a motorcycle dealership after going shopping when the unidentified suspect ran up to his vehicle and shot him. The video also referenced to controversial topics in the United States, such as racism, the 1991 Rodney King beating, the lynching in MS of 14-year-old Emmett Till in 1955, the 2014 Missouri riots, police shooting of Philando Castile in Minnesota in 2016 and the 2017 Charlottesville violence.

After hearing the shots, many surrounded the auto while onlookers took video of the horrific incident and shared it on social media.

He was shot and the two men fled the scene in a dark coloured SUV. In dispatch audio obtained by TMZ, the Broward County Sheriff's Office said the shooting was a "possible drive-by".

Onfroy released his second XXXTentacion album ? earlier this year, after releasing his debut album 17 in 2017. He is now awaiting trial on domestic violence charges for allegedly abusing his then-pregnant girlfriend. Reports say his run-ins with law enforcement also included two robberies, assault with a deadly weapon and witness tampering.

Some defended the rapper who had a history of abuse and was facing an upcoming court date for allegedly abusing a pregnant girlfriend.

News of his death, however, drew a strong reaction from many of his fellow rappers, including Kanye West, who said he was "inspired" by the young musician.

In the last 18 months, Onfroy quickly became one of popular music's most controversial and, in some circles, reviled figures. After hearing about his killing, Ayala wrote on Instagram, "i want to scream at the top of my lungs until i can't then keep screaming. i don't want to believe this.no one knows. the shit. i feel. for you".

Onfroy was briefly booted from the music platform Spotify's curated playlists over the allegations, though the company later reversed its policy, meant to apply to musicians accused of harassment and violence.
