After his death was confirmed, tributes have been pouring in for the rapper.

When you get to the top you need to be mindful of your circles. As the saying goes, when there is no enemy within the enemy outside can never harm us."

"Rip AKA. He didn't deserve this. Black killing a fellow black man is insane. This shit has to stop. Too many young lives with so much potential are being taken away. My heart breaks for AKA and his family. From Allah, we come, to Him we return. Africa is mourning. #NoToHomicide"
