XXXTENTACION Has Passed Away At 20 | Genius News

Florida rapper XXXTENTACION (real name Jahseh Onfroy) has died, the Broward County Sheriff’s Office confirmed. According to a report from TMZ, the 20-year-old rapper was shot while out shopping for motorcycles in Deerfield Beach, Florida. He was rushed to the hospital shortly afterwards, where he was pronounced dead.

The young MC rose to prominence in late 2016 with his breakout hit “Look At Me!.” He dropped his debut album 17 in August 2017, reaching No. 2 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. His 2018 follow-up ? (Question Mark) debuted at No. 1 and spawned the hit single “SAD!,” which reached No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. In 2017, he was the single most popular new artist on Genius, earning over 20 million pageviews across all his songs.

His popularity was met with significant controversy, as he was awaiting trial on multiple felony charges, including battery and aggravated assault of a pregnant victim, battery by strangulation, and false imprisonment. Spotify sparked industry-wide debate earlier this year after it announced that it was removing his music from editorially curated playlists due to the charges. The move was quietly reversed shortly afterwards.

Despite his disturbing personal conduct, XXX has been viewed as the most prominent voice in the emergent South Florida SoundCloud rap scene, which also includes rappers like Ski Mask The Slump God, Lil Pump, Smokepurpp, and ​​wifisfuneral. He’s collaborated with artists like Joey Bada$$, Kodak Black, Trippie Redd, Denzel Curry, and Noah Cyrus, and has been praised for his musical diversity and genre-bending work.

    I’ve never had respect for him, after what he’s done to his girlfriend it’s hard to upset about this. That being said no one deserves to die like that, I hope the find the people responsible.

      That moment you relieze that the number 5 isnt even a real thing and you come to the conclusion that the word conclusion is just defined because we defined it, the minds start spinning into oblivion because there is no such thing as an integral or differential equation because everything is only defined by humans and there is no salvation in this baseless existence.

    • Xcuze says:

      LOL are you stupid or what? Charlie pugh is the last one on my mind to die. Not some grubby violent ex con rapper with a big mouth and lots of rap beef.
