Sheriff: Rapper XXXTentacion shot dead in Florida

The controversial artist, real name Jahseh Onfroy, was killed as he left a motorcycle dealership in South Florida. His condition isn't known at the moment, but TMZ's report notes that the witnesses say "has no pulse".

In a social media livestream from a year ago that circulated after the shooting, he considered his own mortality and spoke about what he hoped his legacy would be.

He was reportedly shopping for motorcycles when a gunman ran up to his vehicle and opened fire as he was leaving.

The Broward Sheriff's Office confirmed that police had responded to a shooting in the area, and that an adult male victim had been taken to the hospital. We have learned that XXXTentacion has tragically passed away at the age of only 20 years old after a shooting.

Rapper XXXTentacion, center, attended the BET Hip Hop Awards 2017 at The Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater on October 6, 2017 in Miami Beach, Florida.

The rapper has been embroiled in controversy for much of his career, including various rowdy concerts and domestic violence charges from 2016.

XXXTentacion began recording in 2013 and found mainstream success with his 2017 debut album 17, which hit No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and spawned some minor-hit singles.

Less than a month later, he was arrested on charges that he attacked his girlfriend, who was pregnant at the time, and was jailed, and later faced more charges including witness tampering. TMZ reports XXXTentacion was on house arrest, but a judge recently let him out so he could tour. When his music was removed from Spotify's curated playlists, the industry threw its weight around in order to get the policy rolled back.
