As fans continue to grapple with the tragic murder of XXXTENTACION, the rapper’s legacy is being elongated with the formal release of new single ‘SAD!’

Rocketing to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the days following the 20-year-old’s demise, the song may extend its reign atop of the Pop pack thanks to the debut of its video.

Poetically eery, the clip (which XXX wrote the treatment for), sees him fighting and mourning his “old” self in a bid to change.

Watch below…

Wow. Sad, indeed.

Clearly a polarizing figure in life, there’s no denying that his passing is devastating. As would be the passing of anyone so young.

Your thoughts?

      She’s definitely going to get a number one with I like it like that. And I’m not even a fan. Sad this young man had so much to live for, but this life here can be super tough.

        lmao nope, he’s gonna sit at #1 for a minute. corni can find another song to stream lmfaooooo

      Nicki is not doing well. During her BET performance she looked like a war veteran back home with ptsd in a peaceful place.

        lmao and what does have to do with corni not going to #1 despite exploiting her pregnancy to a deadbeat with multiple baby mommas for streams? lmfaoooo

        You should be worried about Nokia Tanknaj fIopping left and right. “bed bugs” not even charting on iTunes anymore. Aratna Grande can’t save her. She’s over.

    …When #EPIC meets #CREEPY.

    I’m starting to think he set up his own death. This all seems so forced and premeditated. These kids try to be so deep and over think life when in reality, their minds are being controlled by the devil to put them in a dark place. smh

    I wonder what people have to say to Jidenna now that it appears XXX was indeed on a path for change. We have to encourage each other to do right, and this song/video is an example of one possible outcome from someone who was taking steps to turn his life around.

      lmao oh please how do we know he really “wrote” this treatment before he died? because tgj says he did? lmfaoooooooo

      • eric June 28, 2018

        Regardless of who wrote it, he fully embraced it and offered an excellent visual of a man fighting his inner demons when they come back and try to pull him down after he has laid to rest the life he used to live. The life he used to live was the way of death, but he realized the power of his mind and grew strong enough that he no longer had to put forth so much effort to overcome his demons, and that’s what’s shown in the video. As he says in the end, “People change, things change, and so did I.” Respect.

        Dude it literally says so at the start of the video.., I swear some people try so hard to sound clever they make themselves look super dumb in their attempt. Xxxtentacion despite his major personal mistakes was clearly an artist who cared about his craft and it seems sadly was on a mission to uplift and make changes. In any case this track and visual has left me with a pain in my chest.
