Who is rapper XXXTentacion, the rapper killed in Florida?

Rapper XXXTentacion In Critical Condition After Suspected Drive By Shooting

The suspects fled in a dark-coloured SUV.

A successful USA rapper who attracted controversy after multiple accusations of domestic violence has been shot dead in Florida. About an hour later, the sheriff's department said on Twitter that the man had been pronounced dead, and confirmed Onfroy's identity shortly thereafter.

Prominent figures from the music world and beyond are expressing shock and sadness at the shooting death of 20-year-old rap breakout XXXTentacion earlier today.

XXXTentacion, a Florida rapper born Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy whose sophomore album debuted at No. 1 in March, was killed today in a drive-by shooting outside a Deerfield Beach motorcycle shop. "Witnesses say they heard multiple shots fired", TMZ said.

Onfroy released his debut album, 17, on August 25, 2017.

As you might expect, the Philadelphia 76ers (+300) are just behind the C's, followed by Leonard staying put with the Spurs (+500). Leonard , 26, signed a five-year contract worth more than $90 million in 2015.

However, the real recognition for XXXTentacion came past year when his debut album 17 made it to the second spot on the US Billboard 200.

XXXTentacion has made headlines in recent months for a string of legal problems stemming from a 2016 domestic violence arrest.

The album's single Sad! peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 and spent 15 weeks on the charts. TMZ reports XXXTentacion was on house arrest, but a judge recently let him out so he could tour. Kanye West said he was "inspired" by XXXTentacion and added "thank you for existing".

Onfroy denied the charges, which include aggravated battery, domestic battery and false imprisonment, but in court documents obtained by Miami New Times, his girlfriend detailed brutal abuse.

Spotify briefly removed the controversial rapper, along with singer R. Kelly, from its curated playlists citing a "hateful conduct" policy - but quickly restored them after backlash from the music industry, which reportedly included artists such as Kendrick Lamar. J. Cole called him an "enormous talent" with "limitless potential".
