Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, popularly known as XXXTentacion -meaning "Unknown Temptation",was an American rapper and songwriter from Plantation Florida. Despite his rising popularity in the last few years, XXXTentacion was a controversial figure who was never afraid to express himself, even as a kid.
Onfroy was put into a youth program when he was only 6 years old for trying to stab a man who attempted to attack his mother.He was kicked out of a school choir for attacking another student and served time at a juvenile detention center for gun possession charges.
Popular but divisive for his "depressing and devastating" music that focused majorly on mental health,some critics praise his "huge musical footprint" due to his influence on young fan-base while some have been more critical of his music style, particularly for a part in the video of his song "look at me",where he hung a white boy while a black boy observed.
In March 2018, days after his release from jail, where he spent 9 months for violence against his pregnant ex-girlfriend, XXXTentacion revealed, in an interview with 1035 TheBeat, he always had a "void" in his heart due to his rough childhood and never spending time with his mom who he "could take a bullet for without question".
XXXTentacion was shot and killed on June 18, 2018, in Florida at age 20.
