  • Rapper XXXTentacion reportedly shot to death in Florida

The 20-year-old was apparently at a motorcycle dealership when a gunman approached him critically wounding him.

On Monday, the rapper had been at RIVA Motorsports checking out inventory, when he was shot.

Videos taken at the scene and shared on social media showed the rapper's slumped body in the driver's seat of a black sports auto as a bystander attempted to take his pulse.

Rapper XXXTentacion has been shot dead in south Florida.

At least one of the suspects fired a gun striking Onfroy before fleeing in a dark-coloured SUV.

An eyewitness told the outlet that the rapper - whose most recent album debuted at number one in the USA back in March - had been seen "lifeless with no pulse" after the incident at just before 4pm local time.

"Without any promotion in traditional terms, his second album, entitled "?", debuted at the top of the Billboard album chart in March.

Rapper Big Sean tweeted that his "heart dropped" when he heard the news, saying "I feel like we only got to see a glimpse of his artistry".

Tributes quickly poured in on social media, including from music star Kanye West. "I just wanted to say, I appreciate and love all of you and I believe in you all". His house arrest had been imposed as he awaited trial for a variety of charges stemming from his alleged violent abuse of an ex-girlfriend.

In an interview earlier this month with the Miami New Times, XXXTentacion described his upbringing, which included seeing his mother infrequently and being raised by friends, other family and babysitters. The sheriff's office confirmed on Twitter that a male involved in a shooting was pronounced dead, but did not confirm whether it was XXXTentacion or not. J. Cole called him an "enormous talent" with "limitless potential".

But much of his brief career had been mired in controversy.

Back in April, Spotify recently came under fire after they removed all of his music from their curated playlist.
