The team behind the rapper XXXTentacion has released a posthumous video for the rapper’s single “SAD!” which hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 last week following his death in South Florida.
In the video, XXXTentacion, whose real name was Jahseh Onfroy, attends his own funeral and fights his reanimated corpse. Onfroy wrote the script for the video and served as its creative director before his death, per the video’s opening credits.
“You have done well at battling yourself. Are you satisfied?” the cryptic, subtitled script for the video ends.
Onfroy was fatally shot last week in his car outside a motorsports store in Deerfield Beach, Florida. The police in Broward County charged Dedrick D. Williams, 22, with first-degree murder last week in connection to Onfroy’s death.
At the time of his death, Onfroy was awaiting trial for a 2016 domestic-abuse case. He faced charges of aggravated battery of his pregnant girlfriend, domestic battery by strangulation, false imprisonment, and witness tampering.
This week, “SAD!” made Onfroy the first artist to achieve a posthumous No. 1 song since Notorious B.I.G.’s “Mo Money, Mo Problems” and “Hypnotize” topped the chart in 1997. “SAD!” topped the chart Monday after previously peaking at No. 7 in March. The song jumped from No. 52 on the chart to No. 1 last week.
