XXXTentacion attends his own funeral in the eerie music video for his hit single "SAD!" that was released a week after his murder.
On Thursday, June 28, the rapper's management team posthumously dropped the music video that the young artist shot before he was killed in a suspected robbery outside a motorcycle dealership in Florida.
According to the video, XXXTentacion, whose real name is Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, stood as the creative director of the project.
XXXTentacion 'SAD!' Music Video
The music video begins with two eyes hovering in a pitch-black background and staring directly at the viewers. It asks several questions like "Who are You?" and "Why are you watching this video?"
The scene then changes to a church where the camera follows a man walking toward the altar where an open casket is situated. The pews were filled with mourning people and photos of XXXTentacion were displayed at the venue. The young man looks at the body in the casket and sees himself.
The five-minute long music video also sees the young rapper in a fist fight with his own body. It also shows him grappling with his own dark thoughts personified by a figure in black.
The "SAD!" music video ends with the words "you have done well at battling yourself."
The track was from his recently released new album, ?, which topped the Billboard 200 a week after it became available in the market. "SAD!" also became the young rapper's biggest hit, landing at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 this month and breaking the record for single-day streaming on Spotify.
The music video for "SAD!" already crossed 26 million views on YouTube as of this writing.
The music video dropped a day after his six-hour public memorial held in Florida took place on Wednesday, June 27. Thousands of fans from all over the United States gathered at the BB&T Center to pay respects to the late artist.
