Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy (January 23, 1998 – June 18, 2018), known professionally as XXXTentacion (), was an American rapper, singer, and songwriter. Born in Plantation, Florida, Onfroy spent most of his childhood in Lauderhill. He began writing music after being released from a youth correction center and released his first song on SoundCloud in June 2013, titled “News/Flock”. He was a popular figure in SoundCloud rap, a trap scene that takes elements of lo-fi music and harsh 808s. Onfroy released his debut album, 17, on August 25, 2017. Onfroy's second album, ?, was released on March 16, 2018. It debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, with its singles “Sad!” and “Changes” peaking at numbers 1 and 18 on the Billboard Hot 100 respectively. Onfroy was shot and killed in a robbery after leaving a motorcycle dealership in Deerfield Beach, Florida, on June 18, 2018.
Crash Karaoke - 2017: Release from prison, Revenge, 17, and A Ghetto Christmas Carol - Netflix
In 2017, Onfroy re-released his song “Look at Me”. The song peaked at number 34 on US Billboard Hot 100 and the top 40 of the Canadian Hot 100. The single helped him gain more popularity due to accusations of Canadian rapper Drake using a similar rap flow in his then-unreleased song “KMT” that he previewed at a concert in Amsterdam with feature guest appearance from British rapper Giggs. After his release from prison on April 18, 2017, he released three more songs on SoundCloud. In an interview with WMIB, Onfroy announced that he was working on the studio albums Bad Vibes and 17; as well as a mixtape, I Need Jesus. In an interview three days after his release from prison, Onfroy said to XXL, “I got this really, really, really good album called 17. That's more of an alternative, R&B sound—then I've got this mixtape called I Need Jesus, which is mainly rap and the underground sound I did.” Onfroy announced his first nationwide tour on April 28, 2017. The tour, titled “The Revenge Tour”, had 26 tour dates overall and was widely publicized due to numerous controversies which included a rapper being assaulted, Onfroy being involved in an altercation on stage that led to him being knocked unconscious an audience member being stabbed, Onfroy being thrown into a barricade by security, and Onfroy punching a fan. He announced the cancellation of the rest of the tour dates due to his cousin being shot on June 24, 2017, though the final tour date in Broward County, Florida, still went ahead and was later streamed on the watchthemusic (WAV) app. Onfroy was named as the tenth pick on XXL's “2017 Freshman Class” after being voted in. In his XXL freestyle (which is regularly done by freshmen where a rapper will rhyme a cappella), it was speculated that he verbally insulted fellow American rapper J. Cole, though later Cole endorsed the rapper's music, calling him “talented”. Onfroy released his major-label debut commercial project, called Revenge, on May 16, 2017. The mixtape consists of eight previously released songs. The collaborative mixtape, Members Only, Vol. 3, with Members Only, was released on June 26, 2017. Onfroy announced that he would be taking a small break from social media on July 20, 2017, until he came back two weeks later to announce the release date for his upcoming debut album, called 17. Rapper DRAM brought Onfroy out at a concert in the Staples Centre during Kendrick Lamar's DAMN. Tour, being the first time that Onfroy performed at the arena and the first time he was brought out as an opening act by a mainstream artist. This was following Lamar's comments about rappers using ghostwriters for song lyrics which may have been directed at Drake, whom Onfroy was in a rap feud with earlier that year. He released his major-label debut album, 17, on August 25, 2017. The album debuted at No. 2 on the US Billboard 200, selling 86,000 album-equivalent units first week. The album received a positive response from critics, some of which lauded the album for its personal narratives and diverse musical style. On September 3, 2017, Onfroy announced that Bad Vibes Forever, his second album, was still in production. 17 gave Onfroy's seven songs—“Jocelyn Flores”, “Revenge”, “Fuck Love”, “Everybody Dies in Their Nightmares”, “Depression & Obsession”, “Save Me” and “Carry On”—that debuted in the Billboard Hot 100 at number 31, 77, 41, 54, 91, 94 and 95, respectively with “Jocelyn Flores” becoming XXXTentacion's highest-charting song since “Look at Me” that peaked it at 34. Onfroy then had his ninth song to chart on the Billboard Hot 100, in turn with his being featured on Kodak Black's song “Roll in Peace”, taken from Project Baby 2. The song debuted at 52, and peaked at 31. On September 12, 2017, Onfroy released his first official music video for his 2016 song “Look at Me”, as well as sharing a music video with his 2015 song “Riot”. The song generated controversy hours after being posted due to the video depicting a white child being hanged by Onfroy, as another black child observed. Onfroy's label, Bad Vibes Forever, signed a distribution deal with Capitol Music Group subsidiary Caroline on October 19, 2017. The deal, reportedly worth 6 million dollars, is for one album only. Shortly afterwards on October 25, 2017, Onfroy announced he was terminating his contract with Caroline despite a representative confirming he was still signed. Two days later, he announced that he will be retiring due to negativity and backlash though some publications noted that Onfroy made similar statements before and not followed through. On October 30, 2017, Onfroy announced that he will make music again if fellow Broward rapper and “former best friend”, Ski Mask the Slump God, was his friend again. Later, Onfroy answered a fan's question on Instagram live about his retirement, saying, “Am I quitting? Yes, I'm quitting—I don't know for how long, but I'm just not going to make music right now.” Onfroy previewed new music on November 2, 2017, signaling a return to making music. Onfroy announced a new album titled Bad Vibes Forever on November 17, 2017, speaking on the album, Onfroy said “It will be a mix of genres you have seen me dabble with, if you are not a fan of me this is not an album for you, it is for core fans only”. The album title shares its name with his label. On December 11, 2017, Onfroy released the A Ghetto Christmas Carol EP on SoundCloud. A day before his hearing for witness tampering charges, Onfroy announced that he was preparing three albums to be ready for 2018, and after being released on house arrest, he announced the titles of all three albums, Skins, Bad Vibes Forever and ?.
