XXXTentacion – Drake, Joe Budden, Quavo, & Offset Among Individuals Listed As Potential Witnesses In Upcoming Trial For Rapper’s Murder

Lawyers for one of the defendants on trial for the murder of XXXTentacion recently submitted their potential witness list, and it’s flooded with A-list celebrities.

According to reports, the legal team for Dedrick Williams, 26, has requested a judge call a few big-name artists — who allegedly had beef with XXXTentaction — to the witness stand.

Reportedly, Williams is suspected of driving the vehicle gunmen used to get away from the scene, after fatally shooting X, real name Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy, back in 2018. Reports state that Williams‘ lawyer cited several rappers who could be suspects in the case. The list of potential witnesses includes; Drake, Joe Budden, 6ix9ine, Quavo, and Offset.

Takeoff was reportedly removed from the list, as he was shot and killed earlier last month. The report adds that jailed Toronto rapper Top5, as well as rappers 600 Breezy, Tankhead666, and Ski Mask The Slump God are also listed on the witness list.

It seems all the musicians listed had some kind of tiff with X at some point in his career. If you recall, the “SAD!” artist directly tagged rap superstar Drake in post months before his death, claiming the “More Life” artist wanted him dead. This was subsequent to X accusing the Canadian artist of stealing his flow. The Florida native took to Instagram with a post, writing:



However, X claimed after that his account had been hacked. Despite the witness list being submitted, there is the possibility the judge could deny the motion. Prosecutors in the case have reportedly objected to the list, stating:

“It is apparent from the deliberate, late disclosure of the defendant’s witnesses and comments made between the parties that [the] defendant intended to ‘surprise’ the state and create a trial by ambush,”

Reports note that Williams‘ legal team is hoping to place reasonable doubt in the minds of jurors by offering other suspects. At this time, none of the rappers have yet been called on by the courts to partake in the trial.

Reportedly, there is also no evidence that suggests anything ties the listed names to the murder. However, should the judge approve the motion, the witnesses will be required to speak during the case on their relationship with X.

No legal teams for any of the rappers, nor have they themselves, have addressed the case at this time.
