“If I’m going to die or ever be a sacrifice, I want to make sure that my life made at least five million kids happy or they found some sort of answers or resolve in my life regardless of the negative around my name, regardless of the bad things people say to me, said XXXTentacion on the video he posted.
Fans took to social media to share a video he had posted to Instagram Live where he spoke about his legacy.
CONTROVERSIAL American rapper XXXTentacion was shot dead in an apparent armed robbery yesterday in Miami, according to US reports.
The 20-year-old was gunned down as he left a South Florida motorcycle dealership, thought to have died in his car and declared dead at hospital.
TMZ claim the 20-year-old was gunned down in a drive-by shooting as he left a South Florida motorcycle dealership. Police confirmed the artist, real name Jahseh Onfroy, was approached by two armed suspects shortly after 4pm on Monday – they are still being hunted.
At least one of the suspects fired a gun which hit Onfroy as he sat in a BMW before both fled in a dark-coloured SUV, cops said.
Witnesses reported hearing multiple gunshots, and in a clip following the attack the rapper can be seen slumped behind the wheel of his car.
Last known picture of #XXXtentacion moments before he was tragically shot! “Onfrony was transported to Broward Health North where he was pronounced dead.”
Officers are offering a reward up to $3,000 (£2,260) for anyone who might have a tip which leads to an arrest.
According to the dispatch call, the gunmen were wearing hoodies and red masks and made off in a black Dodge Journey, with dark tint and black wheels.
In the undated clip, he is seen speaking into his phone as he drives along, saying: “If worse thing comes to worst, and I f***ing die or some s*** and I’m not able to see out my dreams, I at least want to know that the kids perceived my message and were able to make something of themselves and able to take my message and use it and turn it into something positive and to at least have a good life”.
