Rapper XXXTentacion reportedly shot in Florida

  • XXXTentacion

The controversial rapper (real name: Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy) is now facing more than a dozen felony charges and allegations of domestic violence including his alleged beating of a girlfriend while pregnant.

Video shows a man in the driver's seat of a stationary vehicle while a bystander apparently checks his pulse.

"Do not let your depression make you", he said at the time.

Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue personnel rushed the wounded rapper to nearby Broward Health North, where he was pronounced dead at about 5:30 p.m.

The Broward County Sheriff later tweeted that they had responded to "an incident regarding a shooting" in Deerfield Beach. Both of the suspects fled in a dark-colour SUV.




Onfroy was set to stand trial regarding the case later this year, and his case sparked an ongoing conversation regarding the music industry's responsibility for addressing violent acts committed against women by artists.

Two videos from different angles circulating on Twitter show a man that looks like Onfroy slumped in the driver's seat of the BMW with the doors up while witnesses and BSO deputies check his pulse on his neck.

His debut album went in at No. 2 in the Billboard Top 200 charts last August, and his music was recently removed - and then reinstated - by Spotify under their "hate content" policy. According to TMZ, he was charged with eight new felonies in December, which were connected to accusations of witness tampering, while he was imprisoned on domestic violence charges.

After being arrested again for aggravated battery of his pregnant girlfriend, he donated $100,000 to domestic violence prevention programs and announced an event to support rape victims. A judge in March granted his request to be freed from house arrest in order to take his music on tour. Kanye West said he was "inspired" by XXXTentacion and added "thank you for existing". "RIP X", he tweeted.
