Big news on the street this week is the murder of controversial rapper XXXTentacion (real name Jahseh Onfroy), in an apparent robbery gone wrong. The 20 year old rapper was leaving a motorsports store just before 4 p.m. when two men in a dark colored SUV shot him in broad daylight.

At the time of his death XXXTentacion was awaiting trial for a 2016 domestic-abuse case, in which he was charged with aggravated battery of a pregnant woman, domestic battery by strangulation, false imprisonment, and witness tampering.

However this hasn’t stopped tributes rolling in on Twitter from fellow celebrities & rappers:

Kanye West 

Tyga

Big Sean

Diddy 

Juicy J


One notable rapper that has stayed quiet on
XXXTentacion’s death has been Drake - who has had a long running beef with the controversial rapper. Could this be because Drake was somehow involved?

According to conspiracy theorists, Drake’s ‘I’m Upset’ lyrics - End up gettin’ loose and gettin’ pictures from my ex, SMS, Triple X” & “That’s the only time I ever shoot below the neck” refer to his feud with XXXTentacion.

Another piece of evidence fuelling the conspiracy is a supposed Instagram story post by XXXTentacion claiming that “ IF ANYONE TRIES TO KILL ME IT WAS @champagnepapi IM SNITCHING RN”.

While it is a stretch to imagine Drake had anything to do with the murder of XXXTentacion, it’s obvious that many people had beef with him. Which begs the question could the shooting have been staged to look like a robbery... *Cue X-Files music*
