Rapper XXXTentacion talked about dying a "tragic death" in an eerily prophetic Instagram video posted before he was gunned down in Florida Monday.
The 20-year-old, whose real name was Jahseh Onfroy, talked about dying in an undated Instagram Live video.
“Worst thing comes to worse, I f***ing die a tragic death or some s*** 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 and to at least have a good life,” the 20-year-old told his fans.
The clip surfaced Monday after the rising rap star was fatally shot in South Florida as he sat in his BMW outside a motorcycle dealership.
The shooting occurred at about 5:30 p.m. in what was believed to be a drive-by, according to police dispatch audio obtained by TMZ.
“If I’m going to die or ever be a sacrifice, I want to make sure that my life made at least five million kids happy, or they found some sort of answers or resolve in my life, regardless of the negative around my name, regardless of the bad things people say to me,” the rapper added in the resurfaced Instagram video. "I don’t give a f*** because I know my goal in the end and I know what I want for everyone and I know what my message is. So I just wanted to say I appreciate and love all of you, and I believe in you all."
XXXTentacion’s career took off with a spot among XXL’s 2017 Freshman Class followed by a $6 million record deal this year.
In March, XXXTentacion’s sophomore album, "?," debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart. His previous release, called "17," landed at No. 2. His YouTube channel has more than 5 million subscribers.
