Thousands have gathered at a Florida arena to remember slain rapper XXXTentacion on Wednesday.
Family, friends and fans attended the service at the 20,000 seat BB&T Center in Sunrise today, which began at midday and will run until 6pm this evening.
Emotional fans stood in line outside the Florida Panther's stadium from 7am, in the sweltering 100 degrees F, hoping to be the first through the doors of the arena when the doors opened at 12 noon. Many attendees sang along to XXXTentacion songs and shared how they had been moved by his lyrics.
A tribute video of the rapper, whose real name is Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, is playing during the first hour of the viewing, and celebrity guests are expected to be in attendance. Organizers are expecting a total of 19,000 mourners over the afternoon.
The funeral has an open casket and cell phone and video cameras are strictly prohibited.

'Please leave them at home or in your vehicle. Any person found with any device of the sort will be immediately turned around at the gate or escorted out and will not be allowed back on the premises,' the Instagram post read.
XXXTentacion, whose real name is Jahseh Onfrony, was gunned down last Monday as he left a motorsports store in Deerfield Beach. He was 20 years old.
Dedrick Williams, 22, has been charged in the rapper's murder. And today, the sheriff’s department announced they would like to to speak with another man, 22-year-old Robert Allen.
Following his death, XXXTentacion topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart with 'Sad!' and his two albums have landed in the Top 10.
The rapper's mom, Cleopatra Bernard, appealed to fans in an Instagram post, to donate one dollar each to the XXXTentacion Foundation - which she said had been started by her son and was his 'final wish'.
Fans gathered at a vigil for the rapper in Deerfield Beach, Florida, near the site where the troubled rapper-singer was killed, shortly after the fatal shooting last week

Bernard said all proceeds would go towards various charities helping underprivileged children, kids in foster care, the homeless, single mothers and families struggling to pay hospital bills. 
Florida police have alleged that XXXTentacion was deliberately targeted by two assailants on Monday who followed him into a motorcycle store.
The 20-year-old was gunned down outside Riva Motorsports in Pompano Beach, Florida.
Dedrick Williams, 22, has been arrested for his death. He is one of the two men alleged to have carried out the attack. The other has not yet been traced and police are planning to release a sketch this week.
The rapper's lawyer said police believed that he was the victim of a robbery gone-wrong and that he may have been in the wrong place at the wrong time. 
But friends of XXXTentacion say he had made enemies in his rise to the top, and believe that the fatal shooting was a deliberate murder plot. 
At 3.30pm on June 18 XXXTentacion entered the store. Two minutes later, two men got out of a dark sports car and followed him in to the store, according to the arrest affidavit which was obtained byThe New York Times.

Inside, the two men went to the parts department and bought masks then exited the store.

Once they were back in the parking lot, they moved their car to the north gate of the parking lot, blocking the exit. 
When the rapper finally emerged at 3.55pm, he got into his $150,000 SUV. He tried to turn out of the parking lot but was ambushed by the two men in the SUV.  

The men then got out of their SUV wearing masks and carrying guns. They 'demanded property' from the rapper and a fight ensued. 
He was shot and the two men then reached into his car to steal a Louis Vuitton bag. It is not clear what was inside it but XXXTentacion's lawyer previously suggested that he visited the bank before going to the motorcycle store. 

Whether or not there was cash inside the bags remains unclear.
After shooting him, the two men fled in their SUV. 
Authorities later arrested Williams by matching the orange sandals he is seen wearing in Instagram pictures to the orange sandals on one of the suspects described by witnesses from the robbery. 
XXXTentacion's lawyer said he was planning on buying a motorcycle and had been to the bank before he went into the store 
RIP: XXXTentacion's mom shared several heart-wrenching post about her son after his death including this one. She later shared a photograph of an ultrasound which suggested her son impregnated someone before his death. The woman is not named 
A separate Instagram post , shared by the controversial 'Sad' rapper's mother Cleopatra Bernard, asked fans to donate one dollar each to the XXXTentacion Foundation. She said the rapper started it himself it was her son's 'final wish'
The rapper's family has said from the beginning that they do not believe he was randomly killed.

It has also been claimed that he 'knew he had enemies' and had become fearful about leaving the house. 

Some close to him say he was warned to increase his security team in the weeks before his death. 

The controversial rapper's fans have erupted in grief and flooded the motorcycle store with tributes to him after his death. 
Some claimed optimistically that the reports of his death were a publicity stunt and that he is still alive. 

Among those who went to pay her respects to him was an ex-girlfriend who said he beat and choked her when she was pregnant. 
The rapper's mother has since claimed on Instagram that another woman, who has not been named, is pregnant with his child. 
She shared a photograph of an ultrasound and said it was his final 'gift' to the world.  

Billboard reports that the rapper-singer's song originally peaked at No. 7, but jumped back this week from No. 52 to No. 1, supplanting Drake's 'Nice for What.'
