XXX Temptation was a controversial figure in the art scene, with multiple legal problems, among which were a dozen charges for serious crimes and manipulation of witnesses, in addition to a domestic violence trial against his pregnant girlfriend. Although he was under house arrest, the judge released him so that he could complete a musical tour. Your last album? (2018), released last March, debuted at number 1 on the Billboard ranking.
Many musicians reacted with shock at his death
