It has since emerged that XXX was urged to increase his security in the lead up to his death.

Talking to The Sun, Sentinel, XXXs lawyer David Bogenschutz said: We talked about him needing security, that he was past the point of being a kid making melodies on a street corner.

He adding: I think he went to the bank before it happened. I think the determination was that he wanted to buy a motorcycle, but [detectives] are not discounting any theory.

According to TMZ, police documents revealed that two men left an SUV armed with guns and went on to confront XXX. The publication claims there was a brief struggle before the rapper was shot multiple times.

Reports say that after the musician was gunned down, the murderers then took a Louis Vuitton bag from XXXs car and left the scene.
