In a disturbing twist, RadarOnline.com exclusively learned XXXTentacion was expecting his life to end early, much to the likes of his "idols" Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G.

“XXXTentacion real name Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy immortalized Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. and wanted to die young just like them," a source connected to the murdered rapper claimed. "He craved attention."

"He wanted to have people talking about him, his career and his potential just like Pac and BIG. He was that dude who didn’t give a f**k about anything," the source added. "He has no regrets in life. He was him and loved himself with all his flaws.”

As Radar previously reported, XXXTentacion was shot and killed in Miami on Jun. 18. He was 20. The incident occurred at 3:57 PM ET in Deerfield Beach according to the Broward Sheriff’s Office. Law enforcement says they're searching for "two armed suspects."

Prior to his death, the rapper was in some serious legal trouble. He was arrested and charged with domestic violence for allegedly assaulting his then pregnant girlfriend in 2016. The trial was pending. He was placed on house arrest and it was reported that a judge granted him an exception to go on tour.

“These are the first steps towards complete freedom,” his attorney, David Bogenschutz conveyed before his death. “X will still have to abide by his strict regulations such as monthly alcohol and drug testing, as well as submitting a travel itinerary to his Parole Officer.”
