The rapper was seen leaving a motorcycle dealership when someone ran up to his car and shot him multiple times. XXX was in legal trouble with a pending domestic violence lawsuit against him as well as more than a dozen felony charges.
He was recently on house arrest, but the judge released him from that arrest so that he could go on tour. Onfory, was discovered on SoundCloud and became the poster child for soundcloud rappers. He had real success as a rapper as his album “?” reached the top of the Billboard charts in March.
