UnNews:Rapper XXXTentacion shot and killed at 20
Tuesday, June 19, 2018
DEERFIELD BEACH, Florida -- Chart-topping rapper XXXTentacion has died after being shot by two suspects on Monday. He was 20. Born Jahseh Onfroy, he was best known for such songs as "Sad," "Changes," "A Ghetto Christmas Carol," "Jocelyn Flores," Noah Cyrus's "Again," and Kodak Black's "Roll in Peace." He released two LP albums during his lifetime, including the Billboard Number 1 ? (Question Mark) in March.
Planned follow-up albums were to be titled # (Number Sign), @ (At Sign), ^ (That Funny Up Symbol), and ~ (Tilde), which would have been recorded in Spanish. This planned naming pattern was inspired by Ed Sheeran's math symbol fetish. Sheeran's next albums will be - (Subtract) and (Pi).
The two suspects have been described as wearing red plastic masks and driving a dark SUV.
XXX's highest-charting single was "Sad," which peaked at #7 on the Billboard Hot 100.
If history is any indicator, XXX will continue to release 500 posthumous albums, making you wonder if he's really dead.
