Did rapper XXXTentacion foreshadow his death? Watch haunting video

Meanwhile, Caroline Distribution - which distributed XXXTentacion's second and final studio album, ? - released a statement to Us Weekly: "Everyone at Caroline is shocked to learn of the tragic death of Jahseh Onfroy, professionally known as XXXTentacion".

XXXTentacion, pronounced ex-ex-ex-tentacion (the Spanish word for temptation), was a rising star in the music scene.

Despite his musical success, the Broward Country born and raised songwriter had a hard personal life and was often described as one of rap's most controversial artists.

TMZ first reported that the "Moonlight" rapper was shopping for motorcycles in South Florida on Monday afternoon. The incident is a possible drive-by shooting, as the gunman reportedly fled in a black Dodge Journey.

Broward Sheriff's Office confirmed reports of a shooting in Pompano Beach and at 5:40 p.m. tweeted out that the victim had died after being rushed to a hospital.

Police in Florida searching for suspects in murder of Jamaican-American rapper
His mugshot achieved a twisted renown among his scene, and misconduct and controversy have seemed to follow his career. Onfroy was born January 23, 1998 in Plantation, Fla.

XXXTentacion was considered a controversial figure in the rap community. Before that, he was busted multiple times for a wide array of crimes - including armed robbery, burglary, resisting arrest and gun possession. He began posting music on SoundCloud in 2014.

He pleaded not guilty in December 2017 and was awaiting trial. That frankness, combined with some version of outlaw appeal, probably contributed to XXXTentacion's huge and cultlike fanbase.

DJ Kid Conrad added: 'Super sad to hear about @xxxtentacion passing at just 20 years old. His live shows were notoriously violent, and some of that violence was directed at him. In response, Spotify recently removed all of XXXTentacion's music from its curated playlists, though that policy was quickly rolled back after others in the industry, including Kendrick Lamar's manager, threatened to retaliate. His legacy will always be a complicated, tangled thing.

The house arrest was lifted in March, according to Miami-Dade court documents.

One major lead being scrutinized is a Facebook post by a rapper from Georgia who posted at 12:56 PM on Sunday that "xxxTentacion gone get shot tomorrow". Broward County police appear to have confirmed that the performer is dead.
