On June 18th 2018, rapper XXXTentacion was shot dead in Deerfield Beach, Florida.

He was shopping at motorbike showroom RIVA Motorsports where he was fatally shot multiple times in the neck as he was leaving the dealership.

The 20-year-old, whose real name is Janseh Onfroy, was rushed to a local hospital where he was sadly declared dead.

Four men, named by Broward County Sheriff as Dedrick Williams, 22, Michael Boatwright, 22, Trayvon Newsome, 20 and Robert Allen, 22, have been charged with first degree murder and armed robbery.

XXXTentacion was an American rapper, singer, and songwriter who was known for his troubled songs about deep topics like depression and alienation.

His music combined a number of different genres, with elements of punk, R&B, metal, drill, trap, hip-hop and many more.

Born in Plantation, Florida, he began writing music and sharing it on SoundCloud in 2013 after being released from a young detention centre.

He formed the underground collective Members Only in 2014 but didn’t gain mainstream attention until he released his popular single Look at Me in 2015.

The star dropped his debut album Members Only, Vol. 1 in April 2015 and went on to release three more studio albums over the next few years.

However, despite having a huge fanbase, he was very controversial and was embroiled in various criminal charges.
