XXXTentacion died on Monday, June 18, following a shooting in South Florida and musician Travis Barker was one of the first celebrities to mourn the loss of the 20-year-old rapper.

TMZ reported on Monday that XXXTentacion was shot in a “possible drive-by” while shopping for motorcycles in Florida. Us Weekly confirmed his death after the Broward Sheriff’s Department tweeted that the “adult male that was taken to the hospital has been pronounced dead.”
Before the XXXTentacion’s death was confirmed, rapper Juicy J tweeted, “Prayers up for @xxxtentacion.”
In addition to musicians, fans of the late artist shared tributes to XXXTentacion on social media.
“while you were here you created great energy to millions of people all over so sad to say that you are gone,” one user tweeted. “Thank you for the uplifting music that I created memories to with my friends when ever we would hop in the car. You will be missed and I’m sorry you’re gone #XXXTENTACION.”
