This is HAUTINGLY beautiful, yet ‘SAD’. In the latest visual from the departed XXXTentacion, the rapper attends his OWN funeral. XXX’s camp dropped the new video on the day of his actual FUNERAL too.
As mourners sit in the aisles, Jahseh Onfroy walks up to the open casket, where his dead body lays. Suddenly, the body jumps out of the coffin and starts fighting X.
He then meets with a dark shrouded undertaker figure, who tells him to change and spread love into the world. “The world is in need of change,” he says. “Humans must learn to love and compromise rather than destroy.”
The visual is an apparent nod to X’s attempt to turn his life around by killing off his old self. X was accused of domestic violence and was awaiting trial at the time of his death.
“You have done well at battling yourself,” says the undertaker.
A handwritten note at the end alludes to his battle to change for the better. “People change, things change, and so did I,” reads one note. [via Rap-Up]
The song has been CATAPULTED to #1 on Billboard Hot 100 since his passing. X becomes the first artist to top the Hot 100 posthumously as a solo act since The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Mo Money Mo Problems” in 1997.
