Rapper XXXTentacion has died aged 20. 

The 20-year-old was shot dead in Miami, officials have confirmed. According to TMZ, he was said to be shopping for motorcycles in the Deerfield Beach area, when a gunman is thought to have approached his vehicle. He was reportedly approached by two suspects as he left the dealership. 

The Boward County Sheriff's Office confirmed in a tweet that Jahseh Onfroy was pronounced dead after being taken to hospital. 

Authorities are investigating the incident as a possible attempted robbery. Witnesses are said to have told police that a Louis Vuitton bag was taken from XXX's car. 

Tributes have been pouring in from fellow musicians and stars. 

His music career was often overshadowed by his legal turmoil, including charges related to domestic battery, false imprisonment and aggrevated battery of a pregnant woman. He plead not guilty and was released from house arrest awaiting trial.

Last month he was temporarily banned from Spotify's in-house playlists over alleged hateful conduct.
