Artist Name

Rapper and singer-songwriter Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy (born January 23, 1998, and passed on June 18, 2018) was an American. He went by the stage name XXXTentacion.

The XXX in his name means 'unknown', and Tentacion means 'temptation' in Latin. His name means Unknown Temptation.

XXXTentacion was a controversial character because of his well-publicized legal issues, but his music about alienation and sadness helped him develop a cult following among his youthful fan base during his brief career. With a musical career spanning emo, trap, trap metal, nu metal, indie rock, lo-fi, hip hop, R&B, and punk rock, critics and fans frequently commend him for his diversity.

He is credited with playing a major role in the development of the SoundCloud rap and emo rap subgenres, which gained popularity in the middle to late 2010s.
