XXXTentacion: The posthumous album of himself released after the rapper's own death.


The posthumously-released video sees the musician fight his resurrected dead body, before "killing" his old self.
"You have done well at battling yourself," reads a caption at the end, reflecting the rapper's struggle to leave behind a life of violence.
The video was released on Thursday, the day his private funeral took place.
The 20-year-old was facing a series of domestic violence charges when he died.
Before his murder, his accuser Geneva Ayalagave an interview to the Miami New Times in which she detailed a shocking pattern of abuse - including strangulation, imprisonment and threats to cut out her tongue.
In a handwritten note at the end of the video for Sad!, XXXTentacion appeared to reference the accusations.
"People change. Things change. And so did I," it says.
"As long as the outcome is good for myself and family, I'm not complaining. Oh! And I want her love all to myself. Loyalty."
Throughout the clip, XXXTentacion is confronted by a hooded figure - presumably the grim reaper - who challenges him to fight his demons.
"Your worst enemy is yourself," it tells the rapper, who listens with his head bowed.
"Humans must learn to love and compromise rather than destroy."
A title card for the video said it was "written and creative directed" by XXXTentacion, whose real name was Jahseh Onfroy.



Fans left their own tributes under the video for Sad!, which has been played 26 million times since it was uploaded.
