XXXTENTACION Has Passed Away At 20 | Genius News

Published on Jun 19, 2018
Florida rapper XXXTENTACION (real name Jahseh Onfroy) has died, the Broward County Sheriff’s Office confirmed. According to a report from TMZ, the 20-year-old rapper was shot while out shopping for motorcycles in Deerfield Beach, Florida. He was rushed to the hospital shortly afterwards, where he was pronounced dead.
The young MC rose to prominence in late 2016 with his breakout hit “Look At Me!.” He dropped his debut album 17 in August 2017, reaching No. 2 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. His 2018 follow-up ? (Question Mark) debuted at No. 1 and spawned the hit single “SAD!,” which reached No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. In 2017, he was the single most popular new artist on Genius, earning over 20 million pageviews across all his songs.
His popularity was met with significant controversy, as he was awaiting trial on multiple felony charges, including battery and aggravated assault of a pregnant victim, battery by strangulation, and false imprisonment. Spotify sparked industry-wide debate earlier this year after it announced that it was removing his music from editorially curated playlists due to the charges. The move was quietly reversed shortly afterwards.
Despite his disturbing personal conduct, XXX has been viewed as the most prominent voice in the emergent South Florida SoundCloud rap scene, which also includes rappers like Ski Mask The Slump God, Lil Pump, Smokepurpp, and ​​wifisfuneral. He’s collaborated with artists like Joey Bada$$, Kodak Black, Trippie Redd, Denzel Curry, and Noah Cyrus, and has been praised for his musical diversity and genre-bending work.

  • Bro X is alive, his new album coming out tmrw is called “ no pulse “ that’s why when you see this shit on the news or on twitter it says “ no pulse “ with quotations around it, maybe getting shot in Maimi was part of the album! If ya’ll were real fans he has a song “ I spoke to the devil in Maimi “ which means whatever videos ya’ll are seeing from maybe old music videos or some may have been from that old album.

  • This woman is fucking adorable

  • He deserved it because of who he was as a person. The more of these gangsta rap thug culture mongrels that get killed off, the better. The only downside is that it wasn't a police officer that shot him.

  • Why is this sad news? He was a homophobic, misogynistic, violent, felony charged, domestic abuser. And before y'all say "oh the lawsuit is ongoing. Innocent until proven guilty", his abused ex-girlfriend does have hospital bills for an orbital fracture and surgery to correct nerve damage in her eye. There are witnesses who came to the scene after hearing the abuse and have confirmed her injuries. He's also been accused of witness tampering. I hope he isn't resting peacefully
