XXL’s "Most Controversial Freshman," XXXTentacion, was shot to death in Florida on Monday afternoon. According to TMZ’s emergency dispatch audio that they picked up, the incident was a drive-by shooting located at the Deerfield Beach motorcycle shop.

CNN reported that he was "leaving a motorsports store shortly before 4 p.m. when two men in a dark-colored SUV shot and killed him in an apparent robbery."

20-year-old Jahseh Onfroy, known as XXXTentacion, started his career at the age of 16 while in a juvenile facility. He often collaborated with his friend and fellow jailmate, Ski the Slump Mask God, and released his first songs on Soundcloud in 2014.

Due to his rising fame in conjunction with his public legal troubles, XXXTentacion quickly became a household name in hip-hop, earning the top spot in XXL’s list of Hip-Hop Freshman in 2017.

The Broward County Sheriff’s Office confirmed the rapper’s tragic demise on Monday evening on Twitter.

Legal troubles and rise to fame

Pitchfork noted that the rapper was accused of very serious and gruesome domestic violence crimes by ex-girlfriend Geneva Alaya. During the time of the shooting, Onfroy was still awaiting trial for those charges, which include false imprisonment, gun possession, aggravated assault and battery against a pregnant woman, and witness tampering.

He was also under house arrest for several months at the beginning of 2017, which is how he claimed he was able to focus on making his first studio album.

His first single “Look At Me” went viral during Onfroy’s stint in prison, which ultimately led the Florida native to sign a record deal just weeks before being released on probation.

The following summer, after a beef with rapper Drake and with a number of mixtapes under his belt, XXXTentacion embarked on (and eventually canceled) his first tour, The Revenge Tour, Complex.com wrote. The cancellation came after the death of his cousin, as well as numerous controversies, such as punching fans at events.

Spotify deletes XXXTentacion music

In March of 2018, the popular streaming service Spotify conducted a “Hate Content & Hateful Conduct Policy,” [VIDEO] which focused on promoting tolerance and respect following the #MeToo movement. Due to this new policy, the streaming service decided to stop promoting XXXTentacion’s music on their algorithmic playlists.

After threats from popular artists such as Kendrick Lamar to stop putting their music on Spotify, the service then put XXXTentacion’s latest single at the time, titled “Sad!” back on the Rap Caviar playlist. Pitchfork notes that following news of Onfroy’s death, Spotify is now displaying the message “Rest in peace, XXXTentacion.”

Celebrities say their condolences

Many of Onfroy's collaborators and celebrity friends have taken to Twitter to speak on his untimely death:

His second studio album was released in March to great success, debuting at number one on the Billboard 200 Top Albums chart.

The alleged shooters have yet to be identified, but Florida police are looking for anybody with information to come forward.
