Who was XXXTentacion?

Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy, known professionally as XXXTentacion was an American rapper, singer and songwriter. Although a controversial figure within the hip hop industry, Onfroy has been regarded to have left behind "a huge musical footprint" due to his impact on his young fanbase and his popularity during his short career. The most notable aspects of his appearance were his tattoos and his distinctive half-colored hair, which was inspired by The Hundred and One Dalmatians antagonist Cruella de Vil.

Born in Plantation, Florida, Onfroy spent most of his childhood in Lauderhill. He began writing music after being released from a juvenile detention center and started his music career on SoundCloud in 2013, where he soon became a popular figure in SoundCloud rap, a trap scene that takes elements of lo-fi music and harsh 808s. Onfroy rose to mainstream fame with the single "Look at Me" which is now certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
