The death of the talented musician, XXXTentacion, has been shrouded in mystery and speculation since the day he was killed in June 2018. Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, also known as X, was shot dead in broad daylight in Florida after leaving a motorcycle dealership. Three men, Michael Boatwright, Dedrick Williams, and Trayvon Newsome, have been charged with first-degree murder and are facing trial for his death. However, in a recent twist, defense attorneys have claimed in court that the Canadian rapper Drake could be linked to X’s murder.
The Alleged Feud Between X and Drake
Rumors of a feud between the two rappers have been circulating for years, and the defense attorneys have claimed that the police did not investigate the alleged beef between the two artists. A post on X’s Instagram account in 2018 claimed that Drake was trying to kill him, but the rapper quickly clarified that his social media account had been hacked. The defense attorney cited this post while addressing the courtroom.[the_ad id=”74824″]
The Murder Trial
Prosecutors have claimed that Boatwright, Williams, and Newsome went to the motorcycle dealership in Pompano Beach to carry out armed robberies. Surveillance footage showed X walking into the dealership closely followed by two men who bought masks and then left. The gunmen jumped from the passenger side of a dark-colored 4×4 and demanded X’s chain, which he refused to hand over. A struggle ensued, and X was shot at point-blank range. The gunmen fled the scene with a Louis Vuitton bag containing $50,000 in cash.
XXXTentacion’s Sister Believes It Was an Inside Job
XXXTentacion was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead just over an hour later. The artist’s sister Ariana Onfroy has stated that she believes his death was an “inside job.” She believes that someone close to him knew his whereabouts and the exact time he was leaving, making it possible for the murderers to carry out their plan.
Boatwright, Williams, and Newsome face life in jail if they are convicted of the murder charges. Robert Allen accepted a plea deal and pled guilty to second-degree murder and robbery with a firearm. His attorney, Jim Lewis, stated that Allen’s role in the murder was much less than the other three suspects.
XXXTentacion was a rising star in the music industry at the time of his death and was known for his emotionally moving lyrics. He scored a number-one album in the US just months before his death, solidifying his place in the hearts of millions of fans worldwide. The rapper’s death remains a tragedy, and the world continues to mourn the loss of this talented artist.
The death of XXXTentacion continues to captivate the world, and the recent claims that Drake could be linked to the murder have only added to the intrigue. However, there is no evidence to support these allegations, and the trial of Boatwright, Williams, and Newsome will determine the truth of the matter. The death of XXXTentacion remains a tragedy, and his legacy lives on through his music and the impact he had on the lives of so many people.
