XXXTentatcion fights own dead body in posthumous music video for ‘SAD!’


The team behind rapper XXXTentatcion 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 shot and killed last week in his car outside of a motorsports store in Deerfield Beach, Florida. Broward County police arrested 22-year-old Dedrick D. Williams last week on suspicion of the first-degree murder of Onfroy.

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” both topped the chart in 1997. “SAD!” topped the chart on Monday, after it previously peaked at No. 7 in March. The song jumped from No. 52 on the chart to No. 1 last week.
