XXXTentacion's Family Believes He Was Set Up, Not Robbed
Hip Hip has been taking some losses in newest generation lately.
Yesterday's death of XXXTentacion hit the culture hard and his family believes it wasn't a robbery gone wrong, but a set up instead.
XXXTentacion's family aren't buying the police's theory that he was the victim of a robbery-gone-wrong, according to a new report.The rapper, who's real name is Jahseh Dwayne Onfrey, was shot to death as he left a motorcycle dealership in Deerfield Beach, Florida on Monday.Cops said the rapper's death 'appears to be a possible robbery', since a Louis Vuitton bag was stolen from his sports car as he lay dying.But sources close to the rapper's family told The Blast that they believe he was intentionally targeted.'This was not random,' one of the sources said.It's unclear who spoke to The Blast. Onfrey, 20, was born to Jamaican parents Dwayne Ricardo Onfrey and Cleopatra Bernard, but was mostly raised by his grandmother Collette Jones. He has three siblings, one of whom is a half-sibling through his father.Deputies continue to search for two suspects in the fatal shooting. XXXTentacion had been at RIVA Motorsports checking out inventory, sheriff's public information officer Keyla Concepcion said. He was in a black BMW i8 and preparing to leave before 4pm when two armed suspects approached him. At least one of them fired, and then both suspects fled the scene in a dark SUV, Concepcion said.Stephanie Martinez, a 29-year-old mother who lives in the neighborhood, was just coming back from the pool with her kids when she heard three shots. She drove to the end of the street and saw the rapper's body in the car.'He has his mouth open and his hand out. Two people went over and checked his pulse,' said Martinez, who also saw blood. 'It's just weird because he should've had security and stuff with him.'
Fan Wyatt Rubin, 21, rushed to the scene of his slaying on Monday, playing the rapper's songs like 'Jocelyn Flores' and 'King' on the drive over.'He was just maturing as a person and as an artist ... it couldn't have come at a worse time,' Rubin said. 'A lot of it was really beautiful music, progressive music.' -(Ashley Collman, Daily Mail)
