The life of US rapper XXXTentacion, who was shot dead outside a motorcycle dealership on Monday, was as grim and confusing as his music was compelling.

Born Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy in south Florida, he had a troubled upbringing that was often punctuated by violence.

His mother was a teenager when he was born and flitted in and out of his life. He was raised by his grandmother, family friends and babysitters – and once said he used violence to make his mother pay attention.

“I used to beat kids at school just to get her to talk to me, yell at me,” he said.

Despite that, he was fiercely protective of their relationship, once claiming that when he was six years old he “bit [the] flesh out” of a man who laid his hands on her.

He was later expelled from middle school for fighting, but he soon channeled his energy and fury into music.-BBC

“If worse thing comes to worst, and I fucking die or some shit 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,” he said.-CNN via XXXtentacion

“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.-XXXTentacion

His legacy is a complicated one for some fans.-CNN
