Tragic news to report today: Florida rapper XXXTentacion has been shot in Miami–and the situation appears grave, according to TMZ.
Few details are available, but a TMZ video shows a man inside an exotic car motionless surrounded by onlookers.
An ambulance can be heard approaching in the background.
TMZ reports that a man ran up to the rapper as he was preparing to leave a motorcycle dealership, and fired a pistol into his car.
Witnesses described hearing multiple shots fired.
TMZ quoted witnesses who said the rapper “appeared lifeless with no pulse”.
XXXTentacion, 20, birth name Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, scored a #1 album with the release of last year’s 17; this year, he followed that achievement with another #1 album, “?”.
Known for his occasionally dark social media postings, where he has referenced suicide, XXXTentacion has also had his share of beefs, and legal problems, too: He’s currently out on bond on a domestic battery charge against his pregnant girlfriend.
More recently, however, he posted on social media that he was preparing to head back to school in order to pursue his GED.
XXXTentacion was transported to an area hospital. His condition is not presently known.
