Three men plead guilty to rapper XXXTentacion death



The rapper was shot and killed in Florida in June 2018

The three men accused of killing 20-year-old rapper XXXTentacion during a 2018 ambush robbery have been found guilty.

A Florida jury convicted Michael Boatwright, Dedrick Williams and Trayvon Newsome on Monday after deliberating for more than a week.

All three were charged with first-degree murder in connection to the death of the controversial rapper.

Another man, Robert Allen, pleaded guilty last year to second-degree murder.

The three face a possible sentence of life behind bars.

The rapper was shot and killed in Florida in June 2018 while visiting a motorcycle shop.

He was leaving when he was approached by two armed masked men who “demanded property” from him.

At least one of the men shot him during a 45-second struggle and the suspects then grabbed a bag full of $50,000 in cash that the rapper had just withdrawn.
