Fans can say a final goodbye to rapper XXXTentacion.

 

The 20-year-old rapper, whose real name was Jahseh Onfroy, was gunned down at a motorcycle dealership in Broward County, Florida.

 

Police report that the artist was leaving the store before 4 p.m. when two men in a dark SUV shot him.

 

They have arrested Dedrick Williams and charged him with first-degree murder. He was also charged with violating probation and operating a vehicle without a valid license. It was also stated that warrants were out for two other suspects.

If worse thing comes to worst, and I f*cking die or some s*it 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.

A tweet from XXXTentacion's official account announced a memorial would be held from noon to 6 p.m. Wednesday at BB&T Center, the stadium where the Florida Panthers hockey team plays, in Sunrise, Florida.

 

According to the flyer, cell phones and cameras will not be permitted inside the memorial service, and if you're caught using one, you will be escorted out.

"Please leave them at home or in your vehicle," the flyer states. "Any person found with any device of the sort will be immediately turned around at gate or escorted out and will not be allowed back on the premises."

 

XXX is being remembered by his fans and the music world. His music has been charting more than ever and other artists are sharing their memories of him. Following his death, the late rapper's mom hinted that her son was expecting a child with his girlfriend.
