XXXTentacion‘s team released the music video for the rapper’s hit song “SAD!,” which skyrocketed to No. 1 after his tragic murder on June 18. The Florida rapper, 20, became the first solo artist to get a posthumous No. 1 since Biggie. In the video, X is seen attending his own funeral and fighting his resurrected dead body, while battling his thoughts to ultimately “kill” his old self. The near 6-minute video tells a story through captions, which X wrote himself. “You have done well at battling yourself,” the video ends, showing handwritten notes in which he claims to be changing for the better. — And, that we was.
X’s attorney, J. David Bogenschutz explained that he, himself, witnessed the late rapper begin to change for the better. “The sadness of this, he was only 20 years old, he has this incredible talent. When I took over his case in December, the case was a shambles, and from December to January, I watched this kid turn around every problem he had, and the courts and judges were behind him too. They took off his ankle monitor and allowed him to travel internationally,” Bogenschutz told HollywoodLife.com just two days after X’s death. X was previously accused of domestic violence and was awaiting trial for charges related to the claims at the time of his death.
The music video, which ends with the message “Long Live Prince X,” is chilling to X’s fans in wake of his public open-casket memorial service, which was held in his native Florida on Wednesday, June 27.
XXXTentacion, whose real name was Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy, was shot to death during what police suspect was a robbery outside of a motorcycle shop in Deerfield Beach, Florida on June 18, 2018. Police have arrested one man in connection with X’s murder, and, federal investigators are searching for two other suspects.Click to Subscribe to Get Our Free HollywoodLife Daily Newsletter to get the hottest celeb news.
