XXXTentacion: Look at Me!

Florida rapper/singer XXXTentacion has had quite a controversial rise in hip-hop over the course of a year. His single “Look at Me!” became very popular while he was behind bars and catapulted to the top of the charts. XXXTentacion recently released his debut album 17 which was a mashup of hip-hop, emo,  and indie rock. I was skeptical going into the album because I assumed that it was going to be another regurgitation of bland trap music, but boy was I wrong. I really enjoyed the album

I was skeptical going into the album because I assumed that it was going to be another regurgitation of bland trap music, but boy was I wrong. I really enjoyed the album and found myself listening to it several times in one day. There are many good tracks on the short album that I find myself drawn to over and over again.

XXXTentacion released a music video for his song “Look at Me” which also features the song “Riot.” The video has received quite a bit of attention due to its scene of a white child being lynched by X himself.  Check it out below.
