A week after XXXTentacion’s untimely death and a day after his memorial service the official music video for SAD was released. This video only serves to confirm the creativity we lost in this young man.
For those that are new to X’s visuals I have a disclaimer. You cannot pre-know what the video will be about even if you know the song. Case in point, the Look At Me video, it starts off as mere juvenile delinquency then it turns into something totally different.
SAD sees X attending his own funeral (I kid you not). Let me break it down, X attends the funeral of his old self (the self that got him the bad rep) and ends up fighting his dead persona and overcoming it amid some words from a hooded being.
This video seems to be evidence that he had indeed turned over a new leaf and was working on being a better human being but unfortunately his life was cut short. Having written and creative directed SAD you can notice an ingenuity previously attributed to a circa 2010-2011 Kanye West. We get a glimpse of what should have been but whose future we will never know.
R.I.P Prince X.
