Born Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, XXX was battling several legal issues stemming from a 2016 domestic violence case but found huge success with his rap career.
His latest album, ?, debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart upon its release in March 2018.
Tragically, X was only 20 years old.
Shortly before he was shot, X shared an eerie message with his Instagram followers.
“Worst thing comes to worst, I fucking die a tragic death or some shit, and I’m not able to see out my dreams, I least want to know that the kids perceived my message.”

For those who are so woke that their compassion is asleep, remember this…if Malcolm X was killed at the age of 20, he would have died an abuser, a thief, an addict, and a narrow-minded depressed & violent criminal. So, I believe in change for the young.

Not sure what was the motive behind his murder but no one deserves to die the way he went out. XXX was too young and had too much potential. FKB is sending our prayers to his loved ones and family.
