Rapper XXXtentacion was shot and killed at age 20 in Miami, Florida on Monday, June 18. The controversial rapper had a long list of disturbing domestic violence incidents and legal issues. Despite the laundry list of bad deeds, XXXtentacion had a strong following and immediately following his death a video from Instagram began to surface.
In the video, XXXtentacion can be seen foreshadowing his own death and explaining what he hopes that his legacy will be.
“If worse thing comes to worst, and I f—ing die or some s— 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,” he said in an undated Instagram live video.
“If I’m going to die or ever be a sacrifice, I want to make sure that my life made at least five million kids happy or they found some sort of answers or resolve in my life regardless of the negative around my name, regardless of the bad things people say to me.”

He added that depression and your body do not define you.
“Do not let your depression make you. Do not let your body define your soul, let your soul find your body. Your mind is limitless. You are worth more than you can believe. All you have to do is dream and all you have to do is want to fulfill that dream and have the strength,” he said.
XXXtentacion was leaving a motorsports shop at the time he was shot and killed in what is being described as a robbery.
