This is why art imitating life may just be too much to bear…
Before his untimely death, XXXTentacion wrote and creative directed the music video for his song “SAD!” The visuals are stunningly eerie as the video opens up with XXX attending his own funeral. However, in stark contrast to how he died in real life, the video is one promoting love and change.
“The world is in need of change, humans must love to learn to love and compromise rather than destroy,” one of the subtitles reads as the rapper sits in a dark room with an ominous figure looming over him.
Then things take a left turn as the figure you believe to be XXX in a casket comes alive and the rapper begins fighting himself in a room full of mourners. The fight spills outside in front of a cheering crowd as XXX continues to battle himself. “Your worst enemy is yourself and you seem unbothered,” the subtitle reads as the 20-year-old defeats himself — effectively, showing the old XXX is gone and the new, changed, better X is here to stay.
Ironically, the video was released today; the day his friends, fans and family celebrated his life at a home-going service held at the BB & T Center in Miami.
Several celebrities also attended the service including Lil Uzi Vert and Skai Jackson who posted this message.
