XXXTentacion was shot and killed in South Floriday on Monday, TMZ reports. The Broward Co. Sheriff's Department called the shooting a possible drive-by.

The 20-year-old rapper (real name Jahseh Onfroy) was leaving a motorcycle dealer when a gunman ran up to his car and shot him. Witnesses told TMZ that they heard multiple shots fired and that a Louis Vuitton bag was taken from the car.

The sheriff's department said the rapper was rushed to the hospital and later pronounced dead.

Dispatch audio described the suspects as two black men wearing hoodies, and the shooter was wearing a red mask.

Eerily enough, X had recently shared on social media what he wanted his legacy to be if he were to die (Warning: explicit language).

"Worst thing comes to worst, I f**king die a tragic death or some sh*t, and I'm not able to see out my dreams, I at least want to know that the kids perceived my message and were able to make something of themselves and able to take my message and use it and turn it into something positive," he said on Instagram Live.
