Williams is currently being held without bail. Meanwhile authorities are still searching for the others connected with X’s murder.
The murder is suspected to be the result of a robbery, as X’s Louis Vuitton bag was missing from the scene. The crime took place in broad daylight, as the “SAD!” artist sat in his car outside of a motorcycle shop.
Eyewitnesses said two masked and armed men left the scene in a black Dodge Journey. Witnesses also said X was shot in the neck, before immediately going limp and “lifeless.”
The news took hip-hop by surprise, with fans and several artists coming forward with their condolences. The rapper’s former manager Adam Grandmaison also spoke out, comparing X’s death to Tupac’s.
