Fans and mourners of rap singer XXXTentacion pause by a memorial on June 19, 2018 outside Riva Motorsports in Deerfield Beach, Fla., where the troubled rapper-singer was killed the day before.

XXXTentacion fans have flooded to the site where he was killed just one day ago in Broward County, Florida, to pay tribute to the rapper.

In a video posted to Twitter, a mass of people are seen chanting the lyrics to X's "Moonlight" off his most recent album, ?, which hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200. According to the post, more and more people are "showing up by the hour."

The 20-year-old rapper was shot multiple times by two men in a dark SUV, and was pronounced dead a few hours later at the hospital. Earlier in the day, fans created a colorful memorial for X, featuring chalk drawings and candles.
