In a statement, the late rapper's manager Solomon Sobande, EMPIRE, Bob Celestin, Esq. and AKW PR confirm that the 20-year-old "tragically passed away from a gunshot wound in Deerfield, Florida".

"At least one of the suspects fired a gun, striking Onfroy".

Officials described the suspects as two black males wearing hoodies and traveling in a dark SUV.

He was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

He was facing 15 felony charges and was now awaiting trial after being charged with counts of false imprisonment, aggravated battery of a pregnant woman and domestic battery by strangulation, for incidents involving his ex-girlfriend in 2016. According to TMZ, he was charged with eight new felonies in December, which were connected to accusations of witness tampering, while he was imprisoned on domestic violence charges.

His music was removed from streaming giant Spotify's curated playlists for several weeks earlier this year because his lyrics allegedly promoted "hateful messages", Pitchfork reported.
