Months after his fatal shooting, secretly recorded audio has resurfaced of late rapper XXXTentacion seemingly confessing to beating a woman and stabbing eight people.
E! News obtained a minute-long excerpt of the 27-minute long tape from the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office.
"What nobody's understanding, I put my source of happiness in another person, which was a mistake initially right?" XXXTentacion, whose real name is Jahseh Onfroy, is heard saying. "But she fell through on every occasion until now. Until I started f------ her up, bruh. But I started f------ her up because she made one mistake. And from there, the whole cycle went down."
Onfroy can also be heard discussing an incident that occurred January 2016 in Deerfield Beach, where he said he stabbed eight people in a fight.
"Now she's scared. That girl is scared for her life. Which I understand," he says. "(Redacted), you seen me. You know what I do to people. "(Redacted) know, all of them boys knew. It's on f------ (Miami) New Times. I'm on New Times for stabbing. How many people they put in the news? They said three, it was eight. In Deerfield."
The 20-year-old rapper goes on to say the unnamed woman "seen when I came back from stabbing (redacted) in Orlando."
"She seen when I came back ... no tears on my face, no remorse."
According to Pitchfork, which first obtained the audio, the tape was recorded by an unnamed acquaintance of the rapper. It was recorded around the time Onfroy was awaiting trial for a 2016 domestic abuse case involving an ex-girlfriend, E! reported. He faced charges of aggravated battery of a pregnant victim, domestic battery, false imprisonment and witness tampering.
Those charges were dropped after he was shot and killed June 18 in Deerfield Beach. Four people were arrested and charged in connection with the shooting.
