XXXTentacion’s Jamaican father wants justice for his son.
A funeral for the Florida rapper, real name Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, was held last Wednesday, with fans getting the last opportunity to view his body.
The father of slain Jamaican-American rapper XXXTentacion has spoken out publicly for the first time since his son’s death.
“I will mourn my child from Monday to Monday, seven days, and after seven days, I will forever celebrate my child’s life, all he accomplished (and) everything and everyone that he touched,” Onfroy said.
A source close the the late rapper’s father, Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy, told Hype Life Magazine that he is severely broken and distraught over his son’s death.
“He is taking it really hard, I mean his entire family is taking his death really hard, this was someone who was really loved by family and you can see the overwhelming response from his fans,” the rapper’s family rep stated.

Mr Onfroy wants justice for his son and is actively following up with the case of one of the suspect, who is currently in jail.
“We want nothing else but justice for Jahseh [XXXTentacion] because they took his life cold blood, they didn’t give him a chance at life,” the rep added.
A 22-year-old suspect has been arrested and charged with XXXTentacion’s murder days after the killing of the 20-year-old rising rap star (real name Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy), who was fatally shot in his luxury BMW electric car as he left an upscale motorcycle dealership in Florida on June 18.
Dedrick Devonshay Williams of Pompano Beach was arrested shortly before 7 pm Wednesday after a traffic stop, the Broward Sheriff’s Office said a statement on June 21.
Authorities said the rapper was ambushed by two suspects. They did not give a motive in announcing Williams’ arrest but had previously said the shooting was an apparent robbery attempt.
After Williams’ arrest, Broward Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Veda Coleman-Wright said homicide detectives also were seeking additional suspects.
An arrest report said Williams was alone in the silver 2004 Honda and driving without a license when he was spotted by an officer in Pompano Beach. He was taken into custody on an active felony warrant.
