Maybe it was all staged. Or maybe XXXTentacion is just a violent scumbag.
Monday, June 18th, 5:40 pm ET: XXXTentacion Is Dead: Rapper Gunned Down In Violent Drive-by Shooting
Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy — aka XXXTentacion — is a fast-rising rapper, singer, and songwriter. The 20-year old started his career when he was in his teens, right after he spent a year in a juvenile detention center for gun possession charges.
It was during his stay at the juvenile detention that he met Stokeley Clevon Goulbourne, better known as Ski Mask The Slump God. Birds of the same feather flock together and they became good friends. After their release, the pair started planning some home invasions for monetary gain. It wasn’t the beginning of a promising story, though both have experienced serious traction in their rap careers.
Few would believe that XXXtentacion was once a member of the school choir and later, the church choir.
None of that seems to have guided his present. Onfroy’s violent past is now detailed in endless court records. Fights with fans and watching fans fight other people are common incidents. Aggravated assaults, robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, illegal gun possession — the list goes on and on.
But this gets way, way worse: You see, XXXTentacion recently faced serious charges after beating up his pregnant girlfriend. Like aggravated battery of a pregnant woman, domestic battery by strangulation, false imprisonment and witness-tampering involving the victim.
Onfroy was taken into pre-trial custody after a motion was filed by the prosecution on the grounds of violating his bond in December of last year. Just before Christmas, XXX was placed under house arrest was released last week.
Right after his release from house arrest so he could go on a tour, a disturbing video could put him right back in jail. In the video, it shows a woman in the foreground shooting a selfie video, with XXX dancing in the background before attacking her.
