Rapper XXXTentacion was out motorcycle shopping in Miami this afternoon (Monday, June 18th) when a gunman ran up to his car window firing inside. Onlookers said he was left without a pulse. This event took place just an hour after announcing on his Instagram story he was in town for a charity concert. XXXTentacion, whose real name is Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy had just been released from house arrest to tour. He was awaiting trial for a number of charges including violent abuse of an ex which together could have landed him behind bars for decades.

The irony of it all is that he released his first song on Souncloud exactly 5 years ago this month. He spent his youth in a youth detention center so his life has always been marred with crime but even with that it’s hard to imagine anyone losing their life at 20. Our prayers go out to his family.
