XXXTentacion was a popular American rapper and singer-songwriter who rose to fame in the late 2010s with his emo-influenced and often controversial music. He was also known for his legal troubles, his outspokenness on social media, and his tragic death at the age of 20.
Early life and career
XXXTentacion was born Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy on January 23, 1998, in Plantation, Florida. He had a troubled childhood, growing up in poverty and experiencing abuse and neglect from his family. He started making music at a young age, influenced by artists like Tupac Shakur, Nirvana, and The Weeknd. He dropped out of high school and spent time in juvenile detention for various crimes.
He began uploading his songs on SoundCloud in 2013 under the name XXXTentacion, which he said meant “unknown temptation”. He gained a loyal fanbase with his raw and emotional style of rap that blended elements of hip hop, rock, R&B, and metal. Some of his early hits include “Look at Me!”, “Jocelyn Flores”, “Sad!”, and “Changes”.
Controversies and Legal Issues
XXXTentacion was notorious for his violent and erratic behavior both online and offline. He was involved in several feuds with other rappers such as Drake, Ski Mask the Slump God, Rob Stone, Migos, Trippie Redd, and 6ix9ine. He often expressed controversial opinions on topics such as religion, politics, suicide, feminism, racism, homophobia, and domestic violence.
He faced multiple charges throughout his career for crimes such as robbery, assault, battery, false imprisonment, witness tampering, and aggravated battery of a pregnant woman. The latter charge stemmed from his alleged abuse of his ex-girlfriend Geneva Ayala, who accused him of beating her repeatedly while they were dating in 2016. XXXTentacion denied the allegations and claimed that she was lying to extort money from him.
His Tragic Death
On June 18th, 2018, XXXTentacion was shot and killed by two armed men outside a motorcycle dealership in Deerfield Beach, Florida. He was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital. The suspects were later identified as Dedrick Williams, Michael Boatwright, Trayvon Newsome, and Robert Allen. They were arrested and charged with first-degree murder and armed robbery. XXXTentacion’s death sparked an outpouring of grief and tributes from fans and fellow artists around the world.
His music sales and streams surged after his death, making him one of the most popular artists of 2018. He posthumously won several awards such as American Music Awards for Favorite Album and Favorite Male Artist, and BET Hip Hop Awards for Best New Hip Hop Artist.
