The devastating shooting death of Miami’s rising rap star XXXTENTACION on Monday (June 18) shattered the hearts of hip-hop, as several artists, fans and close friends paid their respects to the fallen 20-year-old.
Emotions ran high as information regarding the investigation into X’s murder rolled out from the Broward Sheriff’s Office, which initially announced the grief-striking confirmation of his death. Heartbroken fans then attempted to beat law officials to the punch, piecing together clues from the evidence already gathered and publicized from the sheriff’s department via TMZ and other local and major media outlets. Their two most prominent tips? The police’s description of the suspects, which were two Black males wearing hoodies and a red mask that the gunman wore.
Thus, the internet landed on two Florida rappers of the same clique, Soldier Kidd and Soldier JoJo, after discovering recent social media posts that they’ve linked to the details of X’s shooting and murder suspects.
