One year after XXXTentacion’s passing, his estate has released a trailer for the chart-breaking artist’s upcoming documentary, releasing soon. The clip, which includes narration from X himself, captures quick flashes of him reuniting with family and friends, engaging with fans, and working on music. In the voiceover he states, “There’s definitely a difference between Jahseh Onfroy and XXXTentacion. This is the story, this is the full story, this is the last time I’ma tell it.”
Following the 2017 release of his debut studio album 17 [Bad Vibes Forever/EMPIRE], which hit No. 2 on the US Billboard 200, XXXTentacioncatapulted from an underground artist to a global phenomenon. His follow up albums ? [Bad Vibes Forever/Caroline] and the posthumously released Skins [Bad Vibes Forever/EMPIRE] both went No. 1, further cementing his stamp as the voice of his generation. Many of X’s peers–Billie Eilish, PnB Rock and Hopsin, among others–have supported his musical genius.
XXXTentacion’s legacy lives on as he continues to release music posthumously, shatter records and accumulate awards. Earlier this month, his first No. 1 single, “SAD!”, reached an astounding 1 billion streams on Spotify. Forbes acknowledged the pivotal career highlight, writing, "Now that “Sad!” has joined that still-exclusive club, XXXTentacion has become the first musician to posthumously see one of their most popular tunes hit the 10-digit mark, a strange feat that no artist aims to snag, but which is a sign that their art is still immensely popular even after they are gone."X’s musical influence is sure to expand upon the upcoming release of his brand new album, which will feature some of today’s hottest stars.
