  • Rapper XXXTentacion shot dead in Florida

"Investigators say it appears to be a possible robbery", the sheriff's department said in a statement.

His Florida lawyer, David Bogenschutz, told USA TODAY that detectives were considering the possibility XXXTentacion was the victim of a random armed robbery: The rapper was driving a $147,000 vehicle, Bogenschutz said, and a small Louis Vuitton bag he typically carried was missing.

On Twitter, his peers expressed shock and sadness.

"Rest in peace I never told you how much you inspired me when you were here thank you for existing", he wrote.

The entertainer, who sported dreadlocks and a number of facial tattoos, was a rising star. His house arrest had been imposed as he awaited trial for a variety of charges stemming from his alleged violent abuse of an ex-girlfriend.

American rapper XXXTentacion, who quickly rose to fame with two hit albums, was shot at close range at 20, in broad daylight, in Florida ( USA ). "F***, no." In that same profile, Ayala claimed she had been harassed by fans of Onfroy, telling Hitt: "I can't even go to the mall or Walmart without being noticed and eyed down".

His brief career was marked by controversy.

The late 20 year old had been charged with domestic battery, aggravated battery of a pregnant female as well as false imprisonment. He's facing more than a dozen felony charges. TMZ reported that a judge recently granted his request to be let off house arrest so he could tour.

"This got me f--ed up".

In an interview this month with the Miami New Times, XXXTentacion described his upbringing, which included seeing his mother infrequently and being raised by friends, family and baby sitters. You could look at his face and smile and he was just a normal kid like us.

Prosecutors reportedly believe the musician - by way of recorded calls he made in jail - attempted to coerce his girlfriend into dropping her case against him.

I'm at a loss for words. speechless #RIPXXXTentacion Loved collaborating with you.

He is also being memorialized on Spotify, which a month earlier had removed his music from playlists, citing a short-lived policy banning the promotion of artists who engage in "hateful conduct".
