Attorney David Bogenschutz said investigators also told him the 20-year-old rapper, who pronounced his stage name "Ex Ex Ex ten-ta-see-YAWN", had visited a bank shortly before the shooting and possibly withdrew cash for the purchase. According to the celeb news site, XXXTentacion was shopping for motorcycles when, as he was leaving a dealership, someone ran to his vehicle and fired.

Born Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, XXXTentacion was facing more than a dozen felony charges - including domestic violence against his pregnant girlfriend and witness tampering.

"Prayers up for XXXTentacion", tweeted Tennessee rapper Juicy J, who released the single "Show Time" with the Floridian in September.

"Rest in peace. I never told you how much you inspired me when you were here", West posted on Twitter along with a photo of the rapper.

"I've been seeing a lot of comments, I've been seeing a lot of things going on social media saying that I had something to do with XXXtentacion's passing", wrote Soldier Kidd on his account, which has since been locked to private, per USA Today.

"Without any promotion in traditional terms, his second album, entitled "?", debuted at the top of the Billboard album chart in March. "God bless his family, friends and fans", he posted. Earlier reports indicated that XXXTentacion had no pulse. TMZ reported that a judge recently granted his request to be let off house arrest so he could tour.

A Florida native identifiable for his spiked-up dreadlocks, XXXTentacion found a wide following by uploading songs on sharing site SoundCloud, with a dark, often muffled style of hip-hop full of lyrics about his depression and past crime.

Videos taken at the scene and shared on social media showed the rapper's slumped body in the driver's seat of a black sports auto as a bystander attempted to take his pulse.
