He feuded with Drake and was briefly pulled from Spotify after he was arrested on charges of domestic abuse against his pregnant girlfriend.

XXX was shot while shopping for a motorcycle at Riva Motorsports.

Before the XXXTentacion's death was confirmed, rapper Juicy J tweeted, "Prayers up for @xxxtentacion".

According to dispatch audio, the incident was a possible drive-by shooting and the shooter or shooters apparently fled the scene in a black Dodge Journey. Prosecutors also accused him of witness tampering.

He went on to be featured in XXL magazine's 2017 Freshman Class alongside other up-and-coming artists.

Onfroy had previously been arrested for other criminal charges, including robbery.

"The adult male victim has been confirmed as 20 year old Jahseh Onfroy aka rapper #XXXTentacion".

The rapper has a history in San Diego. In March, a judge ruled that XXXTentacion could be released from house arrest in order to tour in support of his new album.

The rapper has had a troubled past and was one of the artists - along with R.Kelly - to have his music taken off the streaming service Spotify before Kendrick Lamar intervened. In a video posted to Instagram, he appeared to mimic the act of hanging himself, a stunt that was later revealed to be part of a music video shoot, according to Complex.

While he made headlines for his legal woes, he connected to millions of fans musically. "His second album, "?", was released on March 16, 2018, and debuted at #1.

In a social media livestream from previous year that circulated after the shooting, he considered his own mortality and spoke about what he hoped his legacy would be. "I appreciate and love all of you and I believe in you all, do not let your depression make you, do not let your body define your soul, let your soul define your body".
