XXXTentacion, born Jahseh Onfroy, was shot dead on Monday (June 18) in Miami while he was out buying a new motorcycle. The rapper rarely made appearances for interviews but made sure he interacted with his fans via social media or Soundcloud. His sudden death left the music industry and his fans shocked but it soon gave rise to his fans sharing a video of the rapper in which he spoke about how he would like to be remembered after his death.

Many speculated that he might have predicted his own death. As reported by People, XXXTentacion is seen talking about a scenario in which he dies before he sees his dream come to life. "If worse thing comes to worst, and I f—ing die or some s— and I’m not able to see out my dreams, I at least want to know that the kids perceived my message and were able to make something of themselves and able to take my message and use it and turn it into something positive and to at least have a good life,” he says in the video. 

“If I’m going to die or ever be a sacrifice, I want to make sure that my life made at least five million kids happy or they found some sort of answers or resolve in my life regardless of the negative around my name, regardless of the bad things people say to me,” he continued. The rapper sent some love towards his fans in the video and thanked them for always believing in him. 

“I don’t give a f— because I know my goal in the end and I know what I want for everyone and I know what my message is. I just wanted to say, I appreciate and love all of you and I believe in you all,” he further added. “Do not let your depression make you. Do not let your body define your soul, let your soul find your body. Your mind is limitless. You are worth more than you can believe. All you have to do is dream and all you have to do is want to fulfill that dream and have the strength."

TMZ was first to report the news about the rappers death. Eyewitnesses earlier said that the 20-year-old rapper appeared "lifeless with no pulse" in his car before the authorities were called. His condition was first reported to be critical but Broward County Sheriff's office later confirmed that the rapper had been pronounced dead. According to a police dispatch, the suspects were described as two black males wearing hoodies — the shooter was reportedly wearing a red mask. Witnesses told police officers that a black Louis Vuitton bag was stolen from XXXTentacion's vehicle.

Updates from the dispatch audio suggest that the incident was a "possibly a drive-by shooting", reported TMZ. "The alleged shooters left the scene in a black Dodge Journey," they added. Several people from the industry commented on this heartbreaking news. Kanye West tweeted, "Rest in peace I never told you how much you inspired me when you were here thank you for existing." While rapper J.Cole wrote, "This got me f**ked up. RIP X. Enormous talent and limitless potential and a strong desire to be a better person. God bless his family, friend, and fans." 

On the same day as XXXTentacion's death, another rapper, who went by the name of Jimmy Wopo, was also murdered following a drive-by shooting which took place in Pittsburgh. The budding rapper, who was 21, was fatally gunned down in Pennsylvania City.
