A tragic loss.
The 20-year-old rapper, Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, known worldwide as XXXTentacion, quickly became one of the most influential figures in the music industry after his music touched millions of people across the globe. This not only brought the creative a huge fan base but also one that looked to him for guidance, support and relief with many issues but most often regarding mental health.
It is with great sadness that we have to inform you of his death that took place yesterday. As for what happened, XXXTentacion was shopping for a motorcycle in RIVA Motorsports at Deerfield Beach when two – currently unknown – armed suspects approached him in what is believed to be an attempted robbery. At least one suspect fired a gun consequently hitting Onfroy, this later lead to his death as he was pronounced dead at Broward Health North. The two suspects then fled in a dark coloured SUV and are yet to be brought in by officials.
It is an understatement to say that the world has lost a truly inspiring figure today, even if you disagreed with him over the controversy that he was surrounded in, the potential for XXXTentacion to carry on changing for the better has been stolen from the world as well as him.
