Rapper XXXTentacion, 20, was shot to death during an apparent robbery on Monday outside a motorcycle shop in Florida, authorities said.

Stephanie Martinez, a 29-year-old mother who lives in the neighborhood, was just coming back from the pool with her kids when she heard three shots.

XXXTentacion also stirred controversy.

At least one of them fired, and then both suspects fled the scene in a dark SUV, Concepcion said. The fan said of the shooting: "It couldn't have come at a worse time".

While many fans mourned online, other Twitter users were quick to bring up his legal trial that was ongoing at the time of his passing, where he was arrested for ultimately 15 charges for allegedly assaulting his pregnant girlfriend.

His music was recently removed from Spotify's official playlists and recommendation features, amid a new policy targeted at "hate content and hateful conduct".
