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.
