The suspects fled the scene Initially reported to be in critical condition following the shooting, the Broward County Sheriff's Department later confirmed Onfroy's death.

"His latest album "?" premiered at No. 1 when it was released in March, according to Billboard's website.

Among those to pay tribute following his tragic death was Kanye West, who wrote on Twitter, alongside a picture of the rapper: "Rest in peace".

"This got me fucked up".

Tyga, a California rapper signed to Lil Wayne's Young Money Entertainment, said it's "so sad to lose good artist" via Twitter.

The two men walked towards each other and firmly gripped each other's hands in front of United States and North Korean flags. President Donald Trump says North Korea has started returning the remains of USA soldiers missing during the Korean War.

There has been much confusion over how to pronounce the rapper's name amongst fans and fellow rappers.

The video for Look At Me showed a number of violent scenes and incorporated footage of real life killings including the 2016 shooting of Philando Castile (who was gunned down while unarmed in his vehicle in front of his girlfriend and four-year-old daughter). A judge in March granted his request to be freed from house arrest in order to take his music on tour.

Onfroy denied the charges, which include aggravated battery, domestic battery and false imprisonment, but in court documents obtained by Miami New Times, his girlfriend detailed brutal abuse.

Graphic video of the rapper in his vehicle circulated online and on Twitter after the reported shooting.

His music was recently at the center of controversy, when Spotify removed it from all official playlists as part of a new "anti-hate" policy, then backtracked after swift criticism over the policy's implementation. "I rap about what goes on in every hood in America".

Earlier in the afternoon Monday, the rapper posted a message to his Instagram Story that read, "planning a charity event for this weekend Florida!".
