The rising star, whose real name is Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, was pronounced dead Monday evening at a Fort Lauderdale-area hospital, the Broward Sheriff's Office said. Word first broke with a TMZ report.

USA rapper XXXTentacion has died following a shooting in South Florida, the Broward County Sheriff's Office has confirmed. "He was gonna do so much more he promised me".

"XXXTentacion's latest album "?" debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 album chart when it was released in March 2018. Do not let your depression make you, do not let your body define your soul. A video appeared to show him punching a pregnant woman - his lawyers said the video was "completely in jest" - and he was awaiting trial in the beating of his pregnant girlfriend.

On Twitter, his peers expressed shock and sadness. Investigators are yet to ascertain the motive behind the killing.

"This got me fucked up".

XXX was considered a "legend" by many, as Twitter continued to be flooded with emotional tributes and condolences regarding the rapper's death. Having described himself as a "misfit" during his time at school, the young musician went to juvenile detention for gun possession charges in 2013, and was jailed in 2017 for charges relating to domestic violence.

Cellphone video taken at the scene shows the unconscious rapper in the driver's seat of his auto after the shooting. He was also facing witness harassment and tampering charges. A month before the fatal shooting, the "SAD!" rapper had some of his music removed from Spotify when the streaming app revealed an anti-"hateful conduct" policy, which was arguably just as controversial as the rapper himself.

"Tomorrow's not promised. you could be here today and be gone tomorrow", he said.

Earlier in the afternoon Monday, the rapper posted a message to his Instagram Story that read, "planning a charity event for this weekend Florida!"
