Rapper XXXTentacion fatally shot in apparent robbery in Florida

Rapper XXXTentacion fatally shot in apparent robbery in Florida

Meanwhile, Caroline Distribution - which distributed XXXTentacion's second and final studio album, ? - released a statement to Us Weekly: "Everyone at Caroline is shocked to learn of the tragic death of Jahseh Onfroy, professionally known as XXXTentacion". He's had serious legal trouble ... he's awaiting trial for domestic violence against his pregnant girlfriend.

A dark-coloured SUV was said to be seen fleeing the scene.

Stephanie Martinez, a 29-year-old mother who lives in the neighbourhood, was just coming back from the pool with her kids when she heard three shots.

Friends and collaborators such as Ski Mask The Slump God and Diplo expressed their disbelief and heartbreak on Twitter.

Tributes poured in for the young rapper, notably from Kanye West. J. Cole called him an "enormous talent" with "limitless potential".

He was considered a genre-bending artist, who cited a variety of influences that ranged from Tupac Shakur to Coldplay.

One of the most notable SoundCloud rap success stories since Chance the Rapper, XXXTentacion (real name: Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy) was a controversial figure in the music industry. Before that, he was busted multiple times for a wide array of crimes - including armed robbery, burglary, resisting arrest and gun possession. A year ago in the middle of a set during a concert in San Diego, someone rushed the stage and attacked him, knocking him out.

"He never intentionally went out to hurt people he just had his own demons which caused bad reactions, that makes it a mistake".

Back in April, Spotify recently came under fire after they removed all of his music from their curated playlist.

In an interview earlier this month with the Miami New Times, he talked about his history of violence which started in the classroom, where he attacked students in order to get his mother to pay him attention. The service later restored his music to some of its playlists, including his single 'SAD!'.
