XXXTentacion, controversial rapper, shot dead in Florida aged 20

Kanye West pays tribute to rapper XXXTentacion who was shot dead age 20

Stephanie Martinez, a 29-year-old mother who lives in the neighbourhood, was just coming back from the pool with her kids when she heard three shots.

"The Florida native released his debut album "17" in August and followed up with "?" in March, with the latter debuting at number one on the Billboard 200 chart.

Authorities in Florida say they're searching for two suspects in the fatal shooting of rapper-singer XXXtentacion.

XXXTentacion, born Jahseh Onfroy, was as known for his legal troubles as music as he was known for music.

Police said the 20-year-old was leaving the dealership when he was approached by two armed suspects.

Van Marwijk disappointed with VAR decision after defeat to France
France had plenty of possession, had a dominant share of possession but struggled to create meaningful chances from open play. Referee Andres Cunha was alerted by the VAR to a possible penalty, reviewed the footage and awarded a penalty to France .

" At least one of the suspects fired a gun and struck the rapper before fleeing in a dark-colored S.U.V. Mr. Onfroy was transported to a local hospital". R.I.P. XXXTentacion - your family is in our thoughts right now.

"He had some legal allegations before, but the previous year he had only been a positive influence on people's lives, making hit Billboard songs", O'Hara said. J. Cole had similarly kind words, calling him an "enormous talent" and saying he had a "strong desire to be a better person". He was now awaiting a trial where he faced 15 charges for alleged domestic violence against his pregnant girlfriend and witness tampering.

"I never told you how much you inspired me when you were here", Kanye West wrote after Onfroy's death was confirmed. TMZ reported that a judge recently granted his request to be let off house arrest so he could tour.

Two videos from different angles circulating on Twitter show a man that looks like Onfroy slumped in the driver's seat of a black BMW i8 with the doors up while witnesses and BSO deputies check his pulse on his neck.

In May, Spotify removed XXXTentacion's music from its official playlists and recommendation features, citing a new policy targeted at "hate content and hateful conduct".
