The meaning of «xxxtentacion»

Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy (January 23, 1998 – June 18, 2018), known professionally as XXXTentacion, (often stylized as XXXTENTACION)[b] was an American rapper, singer, and songwriter. Though a controversial figure due to his widely publicized legal troubles, XXXTentacion gained a cult following among his young fanbase during his short career with his depression and alienation-themed music. Critics and fans often credited him for his musical versatility, with his music exploring emo, trap, lo-fi, indie rock, nu metal, hip hop, R&B and punk rock. He is considered a significant figure in the emo-rap and SoundCloud rap genres which garnered mainstream attention during the mid-late 2010s.[5]

Born in Plantation, Florida, XXXTentacion spent most of his childhood in Lauderhill. He began writing music after being released from a juvenile detention center and soon started his music career on SoundCloud in 2013, employing styles and techniques that were unconventional in rap music, such as distortion and heavy guitar-backed instrumentals, drawing inspiration from third-wave emo and grunge. In 2014, he formed the underground collective Members Only and alongside other members of the collective soon became a popular figure in SoundCloud rap, a trap music scene that takes elements of lo-fi music and harsh 808s.[6]

XXXTentacion gained mainstream attention with the single "Look at Me". His debut album 17 (2017) was certified double platinum in the US. His second album ? (2018) debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, and its lead single, "Sad!", reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100[7] and had amassed more than a billion views on YouTube by January 2021.[8]

On June 18, 2018, XXXTentacion was fatally shot at the age of 20 at a motorcycle dealership in Deerfield Beach, Florida. The attackers fled the scene in an SUV after stealing from him a Louis Vuitton bag containing $50,000; four suspects were arrested. No trial date has been set for the accused.[9]

XXXTentacion has RIAA-certified sales of 61 million units in the US and BPI-certified sales of over 7 million units in the UK, bringing his total to 68 million certified records sold in the two countries. Since his death, he has won an American Music Award and a BET Hip Hop Award and received 11 Billboard Music Award nominations.[10] Two posthumous albums were released, Skins (2018) and Bad Vibes Forever (2019); the former became his second number-one album on the Billboard 200.

Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy was born on January 23, 1998, in Plantation, Florida, to Jamaican parents, Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy and Cleopatra Eretha Dreena Bernard.[11][12] His father named him for the Bob Marley song "So Jah Seh" which interpolates Ezekiel 34; both Onfroy's father and grandfather were Rastafarians.[13] XXXTentacion stated he had Egyptian, Syrian, Indian and possibly Italian ancestry in an interview on The Beat in 2017.[14] He had three siblings with one being half, shared paternally.[citation needed] XXXTentacion was mainly raised by his grandmother Collette Jones[15]—due to his mother's personal problems[16]—in Pompano Beach, Florida, and Lauderhill, Florida. When Onfroy was six years old, he allegedly tried to stab a man attempting to attack his mother[16] and was eventually put into a youth program before living with his grandmother.[12] A source close to the Onfroy family denied that the alleged stabbing incident occurred, and it is not corroborated by police reports.[17] In early 2008, when Onfroy was 10, his father was jailed for nine years in Arizona on RICO charges after the Drug Enforcement Administration organized a sting operation.[18] Onfroy's father was deported to Jamaica in late 2016.[19]
