The rapper XXXTentacion is back in jail in Florida on charges of  harassing a witness, according to new reports.

The seven new charges stem from a 2016 domestic violence case in which the rapper, born Jahseh Onfroy, was charged with battery of a pregnant woman and false imprisonment, among other offenses.

The new charges include four first-degree felonies and three second-degree felonies. If convicted, he could face multiple years in prison. 

In March, Onfroy was released from jail after pleading no contest to charges of armed home invasion robbery and aggravated battery with a firearm. He was out on bond when the new charges emerged. 

Onfroy was slated to perform at this weekend’s Rolling Loud festival in San Bernardino. His album “17” debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard charts and yielded two Top 40 singles. His next court appearance is set for Jan. 24.
