At the age of 20, rapper XXXtentacion is dead after getting gunned down in Miami, Florida.
The artist, whose real name was Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, was killed at a motorcycle dealer when a man wearing a hoodie ran to his car and shot him several times.
Many witnesses ran to the scene to help and film the incident. XXXtentacion was rushed to a nearby hospital where he passed away.
Witnesses said to the police that two black men wearing masks killed the MC. Police confirmed that a Louis Vuitton bag was taken from XXXtentacion’s car.
The saddest part of the story is that XXXtentacion was in Florida to organize a charity event. The late star, who hit stardom via SoundCloud, had his share of legal drama and feuds.
He bashed Drake and attacked The Migos — but he did apologize and made peace with the men.
His ex-girlfriend, Geneva Ayala, has accused him of physical assault.
Tekashi69 or 6ix9ine reacted to the story by saying: “This can’t be true.. was just on the phone.”
Lil Yachty wrote: “Wow… you were such a positive individual. You loved to laugh.. and your one of the most talented musicians I know. Everybody makes mistakes in life. Nobody deserves an early death. You will live forever through your music. May you Rest In Peace X.”
J.Cole added: “This got me fucked up. RIP X. Enormous talent and limitless potential and a strong desire to be a better person. God bless his family, friends and fans.”

One fan of XXXtentacion is begging Tekashi69 and Chief Keef to stop shooting each other.
The reasonable voice said: “R.I.P X! You will be missed, and you didn’t deserve this. We will continue to play and rage to your music! That is crazy I hope this a wake-up call for Tekashi & chief keef. No one wants to be a memory this young in reality. R.i.p. to him.”
