Age 20 at the time of his death, XXXTentacion was one of a growing number of rappers from Broward County to gain widespread popularity with fans. Reports say his run-ins with law enforcement also included two robberies, assault with a deadly weapon and witness tampering.

The 20-year-old was apparently at a motorcycle dealership when a gunman approached him critically wounding him.

XXXTentacion had been at RIVA Motorsports checking out inventory, the sheriff's office said. At least one of them fired and then both fled the scene. "It's just weird because he should've had security and stuff with him". His unique blend of punk, rap, emo, pop, and metal elements created albums that flowed from catchy Latin-inspired dance songs to screamo-style rhymes over Travis Barker drums.

XXX was facing legal trouble at the time of the shooting, awaiting trial for allegations of domestic violence against his pregnant girlfriend, and he was facing more than a dozen felony charges.

The rapper has a history in San Diego. TMZ reports XXXTentacion was on house arrest, but a judge recently let him out so he could tour.

His death in an apparent drive-by shooting will undoubtedly reignite interest in the star's all-too-brief career. The move came as part of Spotify's attempt to condemn artists who break a "hate content and hateful conduct" policy.

"I feel like we only got to see a glimpse of his artistry", Big Sean said. "His second album, "?", was released on March 16, 2018, and debuted at #1.

Controversy's favourite child, XXXTentacion was also panned for the viral hit "Look at Me" for staging a scene depicting the rapper lynching a young white boy.

Rapper XXXTentacion posted a video on Instagram just a few months ago, in which he foreshadowed his own violent demise.
