Rapper XXXTentacion was shot and killed in Florida on Monday (June 18), police have said.

- Rapper XXXTentacion has been shot dead in Miami on Monday, according to TMZ.

Born Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy and raised in South Florida, the rapper would go on to court both success and extreme controversy as XXXTentacion.

Newsweek reached out to the Broward County Sheriff's Office for comment but had not yet heard back.

While friends and loved ones organize the candlelight vigil, fans continue to pay their respects at his memorial, where a woman was seen drawing XXXTentatcion's face with chalk.

Candles, a teddy bear and a large, signed sympathy card lined the front porch of the 5,957-square-foot (553-square-meter) home, which was purchased late a year ago for $1.4 million.

After checking images of a tackle from behind by Joshua Risdon on Griezmann, referee Andres Cunha pointed to the penalty spot. With his back towards goal, the Chelsea man was found by a rapidly advancing Pogba.

Nonetheless, he connected deeply with young fans, who were drawn to his songs that touched on emotional topics such as his battles with depression. They said they admired XXXTentacion because he was a local kid who rose from rough circumstances and was making a positive contribution. The latter debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. "He was speaking his mind". "The only person who inspires me is Kurt Cobain", he once said.

In the August video, the 20-year-old hip-hop star denied he was dead after a stunt in which he made it seem as if he'd hanged himself. Do not let your body define your soul. "He taught them how to cope".

XXXTentacion has faced several legal issues and was now awaiting trial on charges that he beat his pregnant girlfriend.

Onfroy was best known for his song "Look at Me!" that improbably took off on the website Soundcloud after he was arrested in 2016 on domestic abuse charges. He's facing more than a dozen felony charges.

XXXTentacion had a troubled upbringing and was expelled from middle school for fighting, but he channelled his energy and fury into music. His mother bought him clothes, phones and other gifts. He told the paper he used violence so she would engage with him.

Videos of what appeared to be Onfroy unresponsive in the driver seat of a vehicle circulated on social media Monday. Definitely gonna make to bump that next time I play'.
