In the midst what seems like an ongoing flurry controversy, XXXTentacion released a disturbing video for his song “Look At Me!” In the clip, XXX reenacts the high-prile killing Philando Castile, and raps while hanging from a noose.
But that’s only the tip the macabre iceberg here.
The rapper’s visual also includes images XXX riding an angel into a classroom, where students wind up killing a teacher, and young boys, one white and one black, witnessing murders–only for one to be killed hanging at the end the video.
As an epilogue to the video, XXXTentacion addresses racism, past and present.
“So I will speak for them–youth, that is,” XXX says. “The ones full innocence.”
He mentions the deaths Emmett Till and Philando Castile.
“I could go on forever about the fact that murder is murder whether you’re black or white, you should always feel free to voice your opinion. But to act out on these irrational thoughts in every shape or form is disgusting.”
Just before the video debuted online, XXX took to social media to address charges aggravated battery a pregnant woman. The rapper posted a video on which he threatened anyone who calls him a domestic abuser.
Baller Alert shared videos the threats.
“I’ma f**k y’all little sisters in they throats, I swear to God. I swear to God, everybody that called me a domestic abuser, I’m finna domestically abuse y’all little sister p***y from the back,” he says in the video.
He’s facing charges aggravated battery a pregnant woman, domestic battery strangulation, false imprisonment and witness-tampering.
