Dedrick Williams XXXTentacion

The Broward County Sheriff's office confirms an arrest has been made in the shooting death of troubled rapper XXXTentacion. Dedrick Wiilliams, 22, was taken into custody on Wednesday.

The arrest was confirmed to the NY Daily News by Broward County Sheriff’s Office Captain Robert Schakenberg.

Williams is charged with first-degree murder, probation violation for stealing a car, and driving without a license.

Williams and another man shot X multiple times as he sat in his BMW i8 outside a motorcycle dealer in Deerfield Beach, Florida on Monday. X died at the scene.

Police believe the men targeted the 20-year-old rap artist to rob him. A Louis Vuitton bag filled with cash was reportedly taken from his car after the shooting.

The men fled in a black SUV.

    Is he really GUILTY? Meek Mills and his supporters are pushing a narrative that ever black male in the system has to be question on weather or not they should be there. No such thing as do the crime do the time.

  • Yoni7

    Wonder how they found him?

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Listen..Im always sorry for a lost life and they say he was trying to turn the corner of his life..but man..I can't get past the way he beat his girlfriend until she was blind..prayers to his family though https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b6b97bed19d41ccc271a73682e3ff28d9dda94cdc515c0c8116dd274bc5693b4.jpg

  • SpillyNillie

    Uggghhhh these face tatts!!!!! Deplorable!!!

  • sunni_daze

    Was this an inside job? I know he tagged his location but how did they know about the bag of cash? Atleast they caught someone

  • Yoni7

    I've said it plenty of times in here....STAY AWAY FROM FUKK BOI'S WITH FACE TATS, DU-RAGS, BARRETT'S, BEADS AND COLORFUL HAIR.

  • Yardgirl

    When will our people stop stunting and flashing cash around!! The really rich do not do this and that is why they live under the radar. You carry around a bag of cash chances are pretty high that you will be robbed for it. Fix it Black Jesus!!

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Im not defendin xxmas because i know that he was a violent mysoginist piece of shit but its alwaysssss some nothing doing nothing having nothing to look forward to unemployed ninja who wants to rob kill or hurt those who actually got off their asses to do something. He looks like a rapper to me, mira papito you couldnt put a few rhymes on a cd or fill out a job application? I hope fl got the death penalty.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    ??? barretts you right though !! Also it has become a trend to tote around backpacks full of money what’s the logic behind that foolishness ? When you wealthy rich or have money your debit card will suffice you don’t have to show off cash money

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Unless you gonna get beyonce to sing this while slanging hair weave they donr hear you and wont hear you. Even tho you right af

  • 11pink123

    This is not the type of person you put in jail with others, this the type of person that needs the electric chair. Anyone that would kill someone the way he did, does not value life, so why does he get to keep his? He probably kllled many people before.

  • Yoni7

    When I see the money pics, I ALWAYS think/say to myself "Oprah would NEVER."

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    And girl dont you know his sheeps are mad at her???????? they claim she ruined his life. I guess she shoulda rolled over and let him pound her skull in.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    Because carrying all the money you have in life is the current fad with idiots. Stuntin for the camera... SMH

  • Ni Ni

    He's a marked one too huh, smh

  • 11pink123

    Well than you need to cause his ex girlfriend forgave him. You don’t know if that story is even fully true. I caught my boyfriend cheating one time. I hurt myself tearing up his house, kicking in the tv and when the cops got there, they Took him to jail because I was hurt and I let them. Because he should have never called them in the first place. I wasn’t about to get cheated on and go to jail.. So I let them think he hurt me, the boy never touched me. He actually took a seat while I tore up his house and waited for the cops to come. But when they got there they took him to jail, cause I was bleeding.

  • 11pink123

    His tats on his face says he’s guilty as charged.

  • sunni_daze

    You may be right.

  • SoulfulLove

    What is it with these goons with cross tattoos ? They know they ain't doing know type of work for or living for Jesus.

  • 11pink123

    The reward. Lol... He obviously broke so one of his other broke friends probably turned him in for that 3k reward. Or that car.

  • Trey

    ignorant coon ish...

  • SpiceGirl

    ALL that!!

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Bissssssssssh! So because you lied on an innocent man you now can tell who is???? Wtf?? Do you not see the two panda eyes she's rocking? Just because she was dumb and greedy enough to let it go doesnt negate his actions. Where are yall fathers??????

  • SpiceGirl

    so NOT surprised....smmfh damn kids off the chain these days....

  • nick c

    If you rich you got to live in Wisconsin/Nebraska on the lake or somewhere very boring too many people just want to steal what you earned in the cities.

  • Coy little wink

    Are those tats or ants crawling round his face...

    Where is the 2nd shooter

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Good all these killers need to be off the street

  • nick c

    Rich people flash thats why you see them in 80k escalades and 800k houses they just choose to live in remote places with little or no crime.

  • Ni Ni

    Imo, face tats are like a rite of passage over to the darkside. Those tats consume their state of mind. They've decided that they do not want to be a productive member of society and don't care whether they live or die, & darn sure don't care whether we do.

  • Jazzy T

    I agree, it's probably more of a mockery...at his view that cross is up side down (just saying)
    That includes the rappers with the Jesus pieces (medallion) on there chains smh

  • ShelbyMoore

    His IG is in shambles

    @_tatoomanpage

    They even going after his bm...SMH

  • Yoni7

    The cross represents death, so maybe that's why?

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    So many face tattoos!

  • Yardgirl

    Average people with good jobs can drive expensive cars and live in expensive homes. The kind of rich I am talking about do not flash and carry around bags of money. That is just asking to be robbed.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Good ? ugh

  • Thingamajig

    They could’ve taken the money and not kill him. Not many people know who XXXtentacion is. It’s extremely sad that black people will take another black person’s life just like that with no thought. Not only do we have to contend with the police, but our own brothas and sistahs as well.

  • Jazzy T

    maybe someone saw him, or they saw him at the dealership, he was looking at motorcycles...he was shot/robbed RIGHT after he left.
    Probably gonna pay cash?
    Now days folks should know not to carry LARGE SUMS OF CASH with them...smh he was young thou

  • WutizstillHERE!

    I am not about to excuse any man for their behavior of violence. What you did is why so many women like my daughter can't find justice when they are accosted by their boyfriend. the simple truth is no one can provoke another to do anything that wasn't in them from the beginning. His cheating on you was his shit to bear..your response to it was solely yours. No one has invisible strings attached to them making them violent... Unless you have a serious mental health problem everyone has a choice of what their body does. If someone hits you you still have a choice to defend or retreat. It is sad when people make the victim of someones elses out of control behavior the cause,,,smh

  • Trace da Ace

    well I am glad that the got somebody....but would love to know the specifics behind the arrest...like how did they come to find this dude....I am sorry.....I am a details type person....I want to know..

  • SoulfulLove

    tattoomanchucky

  • Reenaface

    I guess now they can back off Drake's name.

  • SoulfulLove

    Chile.. they even cursing him out in other languages. smh

  • Tiff J

    I know. Apparently these kids don't think about ever having to get a regular job.

  • FukkFolks2018

    listen. they are going IN

  • Thingamajig

    Face tattoos are like tribal marks. It of course identifies you easily.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    STANDS UP AND MUTHAFUCKING CLAPS HARD..THAAANK YOUUU!!! My daughter was dealing with a abuser, he was just older than she was and he was mental abusive, when she decided to leave because he could no longer control her mind he jumped on her.. held her hostage for four hours while she bled infront of her son..my daughter is a very quiet and sweet and timid person she seldom gets real angry and he was a narcissist So how is that her fault? Oh because she decided to leave that PROVOKED HIM into beating her..I can't stand that backwards ass mentality. Thank you DGDH for echoing my sentiments,.

  • ShelbyMoore

    His bm has her page on private though. SMH....his kids are gonna be targets FOREVER. I feel bad for his kids, they don't deserve what's gonna come to them.

  • ShelbyMoore

    Well he is a tattoo artist...well, was....not he's gonna be someone's bottom.

  • Tiff J

    It makes me so SICK to see these rappers carrying arms full of stacked money in pictures. I'm NOT impressed... but then again I'm old and all I see is a crime waiting to happen.

  • Readytochokemothernatureout
  • ShelbyMoore
  • Ni Ni

    Even the bm *sucks teeth*. you know i gots to go see whats gwan on.

  • JENNYJONES1

    EXACTLY AND A $800K HM IS USUALLY A SIDE CONDO NOT THEIR PRIMARY HOMES. REAL RICH KNOWS IT AND DOESN'T CARE WHO ELSE DOES UNLESS IT'S FOR BUSINESS.........JENNY JONES!!!!

  • Fire & Ice

    A lot of these guys have lost their soul. These people channel and play around with a lot of dark energy.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    No, you're wise and realize that people are lazy opportunists. They'll wait for you to make it and then come and take it while complaining about the man holding them back or Trump or whatever other excuse they have for being trifling punks...

  • guest

    DAMN SHAME! smdh Why not just rob him? Why di they feel they had to kill him!! They probably thought they will neva get caught. Fools!

  • guest

    I'm glad he got caught

  • indano

    A Louis Vuitton bag filled with cash was reportedly taken from his car after the shooting. Setup! Trust no one!!

  • Simone

    OMG that is horrific so so sad!
    Damm!!!

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    I am so sorry to read that what a punk bish!!!!!!! I hope both your child and grandchild are doing great now. That mentality is so destructive smfh

  • JENNYJONES1

    WOW WHY DID I THINK THE SAME THING LIKE DID SOMEONE FROM THE DEALERSHIP SET HIM UP TO BE ROBBED OR WAS HE INSTAGRAM FLEXING ASKING TO GET GOT BY ALL OF THE $$$ HUNGRY WOLVES..............JENNY JONES!!!!

  • sunni_daze

    I think most adults know its a bad Idea to carry large sums of cash, but these kids are making it look cool with no understanding of the dangers. All for likes and retweets

  • AmericanDream

    Another aimless and shiftless bastard . Please just give him life without parole and be done with him. I’d happily more taxes to breathe some fresh air without these pests polluting the air

  • Yoni7

    Let me find out this is the same dude that followed those yt folks 80 MILES in ATL and stole two LV diaper bags. Is he part of a LV gang gang?

  • JENNYJONES1

    HAVING A LOT OF CASH DOESN'T MEAN GOOD CREDIT OR EVEN ANY CREDIT FOR THAT MATTER.........JENNY JONES!!!

  • Yoni7

    I really want to know what exactly are they shooting each other for? Like why? Is there a "prize" for it?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Ummm so I'm scrolling down and see a pic of Brandy and the headline is, "Celebrities Who Killed People in Real Life." That almost took me out.

    On topic...they got him fast. Now he's about to do a smooth 25 to life. Smh. His family is going to be hashtagging his freedom in a few months.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Smh. Poor baby.

  • pecancandy

    I say it all the time, a real boss does not brag.

  • sunni_daze

    Not the dealership. His own team was probably in on it .

  • Yoni7

    lmaoooo

  • Dez Nuts

    I understand where you're coming from and I'm NOT excusing his behavior. But it was found that his ex girlfriend did lie on him. I know she lied about being pregnant, and supposedly she was jumped by some females. He probably did hit her at one point, but she has forgave him. It's sad because she already left a bad taste in everyone's mouth about him..it is what it is

  • pecancandy

    I died at Barrett’s!

  • Dun Dilly

    Tattoos on face = Death/prison before 25 yrs of age.

  • SweetTEE

    Yes..because how would they know he had cash. It's some f-ed up people roaming the streets

  • Dez Nuts

    Right, but hey maybe Drake hired him hmmm lol

  • dontgetblocked

    Another incident of black on black crime but black folks want to cry about illegal aliens being separated from their kids. We need to save our own race.

  • jujumanji

    He has been charged. Not convicted. E can still walk. I'm sure there's more to this convoluted mess we haven't heard yet. Smh at this entire situation.

  • jujumanji

    Lil Wayne got face tats as do the game. But I see what you were trying to infer there.

  • Dystaney Kimble

    Yes ! It was so bittersweet for me to hear how FAST things were done . Don't get me wrong I'm happy for the families but it saddens me that black lives don't matter as much .

  • Reenaface

    True indeed, I don't know why else the authorities are/were looking to speak to Drake about his lyrics in " I'm Upset" possibly alluding to murdering XXX Tentacion.

  • missmiami305

    Idiot! They caught him quick. Not saying he is innocentZ just saying, it is a high profile case and they need to apprehend someone ??. I would hope he wasn’t this stupid. Either way, a senseless crime.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    His siblings were on IG saying he is innocent...like they usually do **eye roll**...I think he was the getaway driver. Witnesses said there were two shooters both were darker skinned...Birdman Jr. up top look brown but what do I know...I hope they find everyone else and give em the chair...RIP XXX

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    True...I thought all of this senseless killing would have ended by now...XXX's death just reminded me that the killing for no reason hasn't stopped I've just gotten older and Im not around the "hood shit" anymore...these are kids all of them they are just living for the day and not tomorrow. There is no sense of a brighter future for them its so damn sad...

  • Dun Dilly

    ANd LIL W has been at Death's door a few times in recent years. I think "Death" been giving him a pass cuz he likes W's Mix tapes.

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Just terrible

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Smh these parents need to know where their children are. Somebody knows these bastards.

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    It is.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Dummy! How’d he think this would end? Was it worth it dumbass?

  • brooklyn23

    I was told yesterday by my daughter how xxx said if he ever got killed drake is behind it. For all I know this young man up there might not have been the one to do it. But maybe he's someone else scapegoat. It could be drake (of course not directly) behind it. It could be rapper soulja kidd and the other guy I forgot his name. But I do believe Xxx knew his murderer/s. As he stated he knew he was gonna be a sacrifice for someone. Welcome to the satanic world where everything is about money, lust, greed, and fame. I feel so bad for him, Im still distraught

  • Yardgirl

    Exactly!! They are so under the radar you don’t even know they have money.

  • Yardgirl

    Yes ma’am!

  • BadAss Will

    Good if I go to jail in broward for shop lifting and see him in gonna beat his basketball head shape ? head ass. I rarely get caught. I'm good.

  • Logan Roberts

    Good so Sandra can finally let his ghost rest. #nomoreposts

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    You talking about Aubrey Drake? Charmin Soft, Drake? Sings about catching bodies, but would never hurt a fly, Drake? Yah right ?

  • brooklyn23

    Another thing Im not sure why drake and XXX had an issue but I do XXX can do what drake does but way better. Xxxtentacion music (most) are very deep. And he can rap and sing lovely and with pasision. He was definitely gifted I'll miss you XXX

  • Rico768

    Damn what if you just called it

  • http://www.4flavorsofmecreolemami.com/?m=1 4FlavorsOfMe CreoleMami

    Glad they found one of them... Rest in Greatness young man you were definitely ahead of your time I am amazed at the spiritual knowledge you possessed at such a young age.. your energy was everything..

  • Alicia.Ashe

    You’re an idiot to agree with that white troll.

  • Bri

    They were probably following him.

  • Dasright

    Lol!! You are hilarious

  • RealATLPeach36

    I don’t believe it was him...too damn quick... he’s perhaps the fall guy..

  • Marlika

    He’s an old ass 22 year old.? I don’t believe he’s the killer I think he’s the stupid sacrifice. The killers knew the guy and where he would be. The killers didn’t just happen to run up on him, rob & kill him randomly.?

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    He's a dead man walking.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I think for a woman to have a policy of "no dating negros with face tattoos" is probably good for her own physical well-being too.
    Less chance of being a victim of murder / domestic violence or some other craziness.

  • Ghost

    TMZ says there are arrest warrants for two other suspects...so I believe the police scared him and he started singing like a canary! He may have been the driver..but since someone was killed he is charged with murder. Probably got caught because they started spending all those BIG bills in the hood...smh

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    One has nothing to do with the other. We can walk and chew gum at the same time. If what Trump was doing is an injustice (and it was), then there's nothing wrong with black/white/brown people calling it out for the injustice that it is.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Might be a blessing in disguise that they got him though. It's always better to be the first one arrested, rather than the last. At least he can cut a deal to testify against the others. If he's lucky he might get off with 15-20 years. The others will probably get life.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Dam sensless murder...

  • dru and neil

    Can somebody on trend explain these face tattoos? Is there meaning behind it or just seen as cool or something? I don't know if it's a part of gang, or prison culture, or just some mess young folks are doing.

  • Dun Dilly

    I'm thinking that a women who dates or baby ups w a face tat cat is probably herself a tad bit thotty.

  • Michelle Peele

    I was watching some videos on you tube llast night and it was believed that Drake copied X's style of music. Something like that. I'm a little old for this genre but felt bad when I heard of his passing. From what I can gather Drake did a song that sounded like one of X's songs.

  • itsjismemelly

    wow two young lives gone for good

  • MsVAllDay

    She did kill someone in that car wreck a few years back. That family got paid too.

  • MsVAllDay

    Yes, jail!

  • WutizstillHERE!

    It is and yes they are back at home with me until she heals both mentally and physically.. Thanks.

  • Pnthr

    Well the witnesses were likely white, every black person is dark to them.

  • KJBibleOnSlavShips

    My theory is that the record company paid someone to knock him off.A positive X feeding the homeless meant bad concert and album sales.
    This generation luv bad energy,negative sh1t and evil sh!t!!

  • luVn_liFe…

    lmao!!!

  • brooklyn23

    Yeah drake copied the song "Look at Me" by XXX. I that song btw

  • Michelle Peele

    I didn't know of his music until he passed. I went on You Tube and started watching some of his clips. I like Look At Me and Sipping Tea.
