Xxxtentacion Visits His Own Memorial & Fights His Own Dead Body In The Posthumous ‘SAD!’ Video
Earlier today XXXTentacion’s team released the posthumous video for the rapper’s hit song “SAD!” which skyrocketed to No. 1 after his murder last week. The video comes one day after more than 8,000 people attended the rapper’s open-casket memorial at the Florida Panthers’ stadium.
Before his death, Tentacion wrote and directed the “Sad!” video, which shows him attending his own funeral and fighting his own resurrected self.
The 6-minute long affair goes through several scenes, all of which are equally eerie. Thought-provoking and captivating, XXX asks the viewer a series of questions pertaining to themselves and why they’re watching the video in text-form. A message at the end of the video reads:
You have done well battling yourself.
The timing is eerie for the rapper, who became the first solo artist to get a posthumous No. 1 since Notorious B.I.G. when “Sad!” skyrocketed on the charts last week. Shortly after he was declared dead by Florida police, old videos circulated of Tentacion talking about his own death, which led to speculation and rumors from his fans. Certainly, the timing of this video will only fuel some of these theories.
Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy—the 20-year-old rapper known as XXXTentacion—was shot and killed on Monday, June 18 in South Florida.
Yesterday (June 27), Onfroy’s family organized a public open-casket memorial at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida. Thousands of fans showed up for the service. Last week, an XXXTentacion memorial was held in Los Angeles and was eventually dispersed by police officers in riot gear using tear gas and rubber bullets.
Written and creative directed by X himself, “SAD!” will be the first step in understanding how his mind worked. Check out the video below
