Before his untimely death, XXXTentacion filmed a chilling music video that features him attending his own funeral.
The official video for his hit song “Sad!” was released Thursday and has already surpassed 28 million views on YouTube.
XXXTentacion, whose real name is Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy, was shot to death leaving a motorcycle dealership in Deerfield Beach on June 18. Police are still investigating the shooting.
Thousands of fans showed up to XXXTentacion’s open-casket memorial at the BB&T Center in Sunrise on Wednesday as the Broward County rapper’s music, including the song “Sad!”, played on the loudspeakers.
“Sad!” rose to the No. 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 this week. It’s just one example of a recurring fascination with death, depression, and suicide that appears in XXXTentacion’s lyrics and social media posts.
He also talked about the possibility of dying young in an Instagram video before his death.
