XXXTentacion has passed away at the age of 20. The rapper, birth name Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, was shot and killed in a possible drive-by shooting while he was shopping for motorcycles in his native South Florida on Monday, June 18, with the Broward County Police Department pronouncing Onfroy dead at 5:39 p.m. EST. Since the news broke, there has been an outpouring of support from the music community; peers, collabators, and fans alike. From Kanye West to Ski Mask the Slump God, from Juicy J to J. Cole – the controversial artist certainly made his mark in the rap world, despite gaining notoriety from both his music and his status as an abuser.

Rest In Peace x 😣😣😣I don’t even know what to say this is crazy man..
Love you bro 💔
This kid was a genius . true artist. He made his own rules . He has his faults but he was young and he worked so hard on his own self . He wanted to be better. he loves everyone so much . He lived for every kid out here. He had the biggest imagination. He texted me this weekend it was one of his goals to get me & Skrillex to finish his next album. I Invited him to La this week. I was wondering if he was gonna come 💛 . He used every second of his life to create . He reppped Florida to his core.. I love this kid . He was gonna do so much more he promised me 💔
look i'm not the type to post our messages on here, but i do want to say one thing. i know we've publicly had our disagreements, but what the media doesn't know is that we handled it all behind the scenes like grown ass men, and i'm glad we did. It's really crazy how mature you are because I was ready to fight yo ass nigga and i didn't care that yo weird ass took fighting classes 😂. But look…people talk alot of shit about our XXL 2017 Freshman Class, but nigga we made hip-hop HISTORY idc 🤷🏽♂️. As smart as you were, it always confused me because of how much potential you saw in me. It means alot. We are all hurt, and its really not a good feeling at all, but hey. I'm not trying to be too sappy so look here. We gonna miss you and i'm gonna maintain the balance that we last talked about. Rest easy, homie. @xxxtentacion -Royce🤕
R.I.P YOUNG LEGEND WE NEVER MET HATE I DIDNT TELL YOU HOW DOPE UR MUSIC WAS WHILE YOU WERE HERE , REST EASY 🙏🏾.
I was down to see X trialed and serve time. Honestly the jokes about his death are disheartening. I’m an avid fighter against abuse and have done my fair share of defacing of his album advertising in the past but, all in all death is not an answer to a cycle homophobia and abuse.
