One major lead being scrutinized is a Facebook post by a rapper from Georgia who posted at 12:56 PM on Sunday that "xxxTentacion gone get shot tomorrow".

The shooting took place in Deerfield Beach, about an hour north of Miami.

Tributes quickly poured in on social media, including from music star Kanye West.

Onfroy was awaiting trial for a 2016 domestic-abuse case, where he was facing charges of aggravated battery of his pregnant girlfriend, domestic battery by strangulation, false imprisonment, and witness tampering.

His single "SAD!" had been listened to more than 173 million times on YouTube, and reached the top-10 of the Billboard Hot 100 list. He told the paper he used violence so she would engage with him.

Videos circulating on Twitter showed Onfroy was sitting in the front seat of his vehicle seemingly unconscious when he was found by witnesses.

Last month Spotify backpedaled on a planned anti-hate policy to remove XXXTentacion's music from its playlists, along with R. Kelly.
