But what else do we know about how the controversial musician was killed?
When and where did XXXTentacion get shot?
XXXTentacion was fatally shot as he drove away from a motorbike showroom in Deerfield Beach, Florida, on June 18, 2018.
The 20-year-old was rushed to hospital where he was declared dead.
Police confirmed the artist, real name Jahseh Onfroy, was approached by two armed suspects shortly after 4pm.
Broward County Sheriff’s Department said: “Investigators say it appears to be a possible robbery.
“Onfroy was transported to Broward Health North where he was pronounced dead.”
Who killed XXXTentacion?
Four men were charged with the rapper’s murder of the rapper.
The Broward County Sheriff named them as Dedrick Williams, Michael Boatwright and Robert Allen, and Trayvon Newsome.
No trial date has been set as yet, reported the Sun Sentinel in May 2021.
All four men were charged with first-degree murder with a firearm, and armed robbery.
Detective John Cucio said the men were armed and had “demanded property” from the rapper.
Who was XXXTentacion?
The Florida rapper had more than 500,000 Twitter followers and 400 million plays on SoundCloud.
He had also been feuding with Drake, claiming the Grammy-award winning artist had been ripping off his music.
XXXTentacion had been arrested and charged with robbery and assault with a deadly weapon.
He was awaiting trial for a string of domestic violence charges against his pregnant girlfriend Geneva Ayala.
She ended up giving birth to their baby, Gekyume Onfroy, seven months after he was shot dead.
In 2017 he sparked outrage after releasing a video showed him lynching a white child.
In shocking scenes the rapper could be seen leading a black child and white child up to a swinging noose in a blacked out room.
He then slips the noose over the white boy’s head before pulling a rope as the boy is raised into the air.
In June 2017 the rapper was knocked out on stage – reportedly by a rival’s thug pal – sparking a mass brawl.
Tributes poured in after his death from fellow musicians Kanye West, Blink 182’s Travis Barker, hip-hop artist and record producer J. Cole and singer Diplo.
Documentary maker and hip hop fan Louis Theroux said: “Notwithstanding personal demons, he was a huge talent & bringing a beautiful new feel to hip hop. So sad.”
His third LP Skins, was released posthumously.
Its ten tracks including single One Minute, featuring Kanye West, is only 19 minutes long.

The rapper was born on January 23, 1998. He would have been 24 years old in 2022.
Who were XXXTentacion’s ex-girlfriends?
Geneva Ayala is an ex-girlfriend of rapper XXXTentacion.
She had claimed the artist physically and verbally abused her during their relationship.
Their relationship allegedly started after a previous ex-boyfriend posted an illicit picture of Ayala without consent.
Despite not knowing her, the rapper insisted on fighting her boyfriend, and the pair met for the first time in November 2014.
After four intense days together, they parted and didn’t see each other for another 18 months, when their allegedly toxic relationship resumed.
Writing on Twitter after his death, Ayala said: “It’s disgusting the people are speaking for me.
“i don’t care if no one cared about me however many months ago, i didn’t lose my life. he did.
“it’s permanent. i’m still here. like how do you think that makes me feel?
“everyone expecting me to be relieved or happy?! No, i’m broken”.
A tape of him talking about his ex-girlfriend was later revealed by the Pitchfork website, which says it was obtained by the cops.
