XXXTentacion’s Jahseh Dwayne, Federal investigators join US Marshalls to track down his killers
The Federal investigators have joined the US Marshalls in tracking down the two remaining suspects who are on the run for the killing of rapper XXXTentacion, 20.
According to TMZ, the U.S. Marshals and Broward County Sheriff’s Dept. are on an intense hunt to track down at least two other suspects who disappeared after the one of them, Dedrick D. Williams was arrested last week for the murder.
On June 18, 2018, XXXTentacion (real name: Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy) was shot to death during what police suspect was a robbery outside a motorcycle shop in Deerfield Beach, Florida.
Another young man, 22-year old Dedrick Williams, has already been arrested and charged with his murder. Meanwhile, thousands are expected to attend the rapper’s memorial Wednesday at the stadium that typically hosts the NHL’s Florida Panthers hockey team.
The raper was gunned down in his car outside a motorcycle shop in Pompano Beach last week Monday. A public memorial service for the slain rapper will hold today, June 27, 2018, at Florida Panther’s Stadium in Sunrise.
The raper rise to stardom is inexplicably tied to violence. In April 2015, he joined forces with Ski Mask the Slump God to create the Members Only Club; the group’s mixtapes would take the hip-hop world by storm. But only a few months later, in November of 2015,
One of raper most famous early songs, “Look At Me,” is an example of everything that made the rapper both popular and deeply problematic. His music was clearly a reflection of his lifestyle, and fans loved him for it.
His abrasive lyrics scratch themselves through a blown-out stereo sound. Sonically, the track is a lo-fi, gritty warbling that combines hallmarks of both hip-hop and indie rock.
His violent and untimely death will likely memorialize him in the eyes of a new generation of hip-hop fans. Indeed, his death has already made his music more popular than ever. Right now, there is a community of rap fans who will remember where they were when he died. That is what I fear: That history will ultimately erase his sins. Death does not absolve XXXTentacion of anything.
