Rapper XXXTentacion shot dead in Florida

Uproxx Studios

Kanye West took to Twitter Monday evening to give his deepest condolences.

"I used to beat kids at school just to get her to talk to me, yell at me", he said. He was 20 years old.

XXX was considered a "legend" by many, as Twitter continued to be flooded with emotional tributes and condolences regarding the rapper's death.

"I'm at a loss for words... speechless #RIPXXXTentacion", the Blink 182 drummer tweeted. RIP X. Enormous talent and limitless potential and a strong desire to be a better person. "God bless his family, friends and fans". He faced charges of aggravated battery of his pregnant girlfriend, domestic battery by strangulation, false imprisonment, and witness tampering.

"Are you willing to risk your child's future due to your own bigotry?" The latter album's lead cut "Sad!".

But much of his brief career has been mired in controversy. TMZ reported that a judge recently granted his request to be let off house arrest so he could tour.

He was facing 15 felony charges and was now awaiting trial after being charged with counts of false imprisonment, aggravated battery of a pregnant woman and domestic battery by strangulation, for incidents involving his ex-girlfriend in 2016.

The spokesperson characterized it as an "apparent robbery" and said the pair fled in a dark SUV.

Louis Theroux was among the first to pay tribute to XXXTentacion, writing on Twitter: "Notwithstanding personal demons, he was a huge talent and bringing a lovely new feel to hip hop".

The rapper, who was expelled from middle school for hitting a classmate and whose mother kicked him out of home, has also been implicated in other violent incidents, including stabbing his manager and brawling with audience members in concert.

The clip was widely shared by fans on social media in the aftermath of the rapper's death having previously appeared on his Instagram story.

In May, he was one of the artists temporarily banned from Spotify's in-house playlists due to its policy of not promoting artists with a history of alleged hateful conduct.
