A bystander who witnessed the murder of rapper XXXTentacion in South Florida on Monday described what appeared to be a carjacking attempt by two masked men.

The unidentified witness said he waved to the 20-year-old rapper as he drove up to a stop sign in his black BMW i8. Within seconds, a black Dodge SUV pulled in front of the BMW, blocking its path.

Two armed and masked men jumped out of the SUV and yelled, "Get the f*ck out! Get the f*ck out!"

The witness and his friend ran inside a restaurant and asked employees to call 911. When they went back outside, they said X appeared to be confused as he asked the men, "What the f*ck is going on?" before they shot the rapper three times.

The men got back into the SUV and fleeing the scene.

    People are acting like this was Jesus Christ that got killed, I take that back people wouldn’t think twice about Jesus! ????? Where’s the post about Jada bragging about her new vajay! I wish we could replace her with Tupac!

  • LithiumHaitianFlower

    That’s a very well excecuted hit. They’re probably tracing the witness now to off him. Just for coming forward. Young man

  • Enoughsaid2020

    It's crazy to me, all this concern about him, but not one of these hip hop artist were there to mentor, or help him. However, they just had a deadly carjacking in Tumwater, WA, its real out here, and these thugs are thirsty. SMH!

  • Tara Nicole

    Sounds like a hit... not a robbery.

  • Malai

    My prayers are with the witnesses because we all know how this could end ??

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    That's so sad, folks need to do the work and they too can have what he had.

  • dontgetblocked

    Not a robbery. This was a planned hit. A daytime robbery would have been smooth and quick. Ain't nobody trying to catch a murder case. He apparently didn't even have a weapon. Somebody wanted him dead. These streets is real. These kids better stop playing...especially black men.

    His death makes me very sad, I was a fan

  • Dystaney Kimble

    Nope , not buying it . He was set up who knew that he had cash on him in a LV bag ?! It's said that he rarely left the house and this is such an off location to pinpoint someone exactly and his uncle ran off and left him . True enough , we don't know how we would react in situations like this but geeez

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    It's very sad, a troubled young man no less, but no one deserves to die in the street. That video of him in his vehicle - he is clearly dead, whats worse is the gull of the person that video'd it.

  • Shawty

    They tend to live stream you before even trying to help you. Sad world we live in today. People care more hits on social media than trying to save a life...sad.

  • Elevated Soul

    When you get a 6 million dollar contract you can't go back to the hood because niggaz are hella jelly and will end your life.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    TBH that's one of my fears, dying in the street alone and people recording my hardship. His fam didnt' deserve to see him in that state.

  • Joy King

    I believe this was a setup and not some random robbery gone wrong. My heart breaks for this man and his family. No one should die like that.

  • Blak

    Still don't know how to pronounce his name....

  • missmiami305

    We all know this wasn’t a real robbery. Set up to look like one. But, the bystander is prolly trying to capitalize and that’s not smart at all. Very stupid! Sounds like he distracted X tho. Prolly unintentionally but he did.

  • missmiami305


  • colejk

    I’m still getting over how the witness said they ran in the restaurant yelling ‘call 911, guys with guns are trying to kill X’, then everyone ran outside to look, and then ran inside again after the shooting happened.

    What kind of nosy fools are going to run in the direction of people with guns?! You’re going to catch a stray or be caught up as a witness to some mess you want no parts of. SMH.

  • missmiami305

    Ypipo think it’s a form of entertainment. I mean look at them standing around the dead body and taking it all in. Crazy! They like shid like that.

    Jesus ain't real!

    So true... I remember Master P always would say this on interviews.. and I was just watching a video of Joe Budden saying this same thing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_WIeBvsNhfQ

  • Kayke

    I dont believe this "witness". There is a video of XXX sitting in his vechicle shot and the vehicle hadnt left the parking lot of the dealership.

  • Marlika

    His killers will be caught soon. Stupid criminals today love to go on social media and brag about their crimes. I see it all the time. These criminals make the police’s job easier. ?????

    Plus the many cameras at just about every traffic light and corner cameras also business cameras.

    You can pay a hood dude to wipe out a entire family. Mother, father ,sister and brother. They will do it and go home eat, shit an shower like nothing happen. This was a hit.The question is who paid for it ?
