It is now being reported that rapper XXXTentacion was shot in the neck and the injury resulted in his immediate death. The 20-year-old rapper was shot in an alleged robbery and, according to a witness, the rapper went limp immediately after the bullet hit his neck and he no longer had a pulse. The rapper was killed while out shopping in South Florida when two masked men ran up to his vehicle and shot him.

It was reported that the rapper's family was convinced that murder was a conscious attempt. They are of the opinion that the rapper, whose real name is Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, was a victim of a well plotted out murder and that the investigation process should concentrate more on finding who the murderers were.  

XXXTentacion is known to have lived a life off the edge and was involved in various controversial and abusive acts in his brief career. He was once banned from Spotify, although his songs broke streaming records after his death. While he is not the most spoken about for his music, he is certainly known for the turbulent lifestyle that he led including getting dropped by his record label and charged for tampering a witness.

The Guardian reported that his former girlfriend, Geneva Ayala, had given a detailed statement of the abuses inflicted upon her through various court documents and press interviews. Recently, she sought help from the public to pay her medical bills for the treatment of the injuries which were inflicted upon her by her former boyfriend.

While the GoFundMe page was seeking $25,000 for orbital surgery, much of the money (which rose up to $34,000) started flowing in after the rapper's death. The rapper was awaiting trial on charges related to assaulting Ayala on multiple instances.

In spite of his reputation as an abusive person, mourners laid down candles and flowers in respect at Melrose Avenue. However, the gathering was eventually dispersed by the police around 9 pm after the crowd turned disorderly as fans climbed on cars and scaled buildings.  

The 20-year-old rapper still remains a dear to his great-grandmother who would rather call him an enigmatic gentleman. In an interview with the Miami Herald, she recalls the time she was recovering from a stroke and said, "He put his blanket on the floor and lied on my bedside when I was sleeping; he's very devoted."
