Rapper XXXTentacion is dead after being shot in Miami, Florida.
Not too long after it was confirmed that XXX had died, members of the Hip Hop community, including rappers Kanye West and J. Cole, took to social media to offer tributes.
“Rest in peace,” Kanye wrote. “I never told you how much you inspired me when you were here. Thank you for existing.”

R.I.P @xxxtentacion No one can be so self-righteous that they are happy when a youth dies. The young still have the capability to reform. God bless the kids. #xxxtentacion
