The official video for XXXTentacion's "SAD!" has been released.
The clip, written and creative-directed by the late South Florida artist, was directed by JMP and sees XXXTentacion fielding a series of questions—including "Why do you love?" and "What is your blood type?"—from a mysterious hooded figure. Then, XXXTentacion is depicted seemingly attending his own funeral. The rest is open to a wide variety of interpretations.
Earlier this month, XXXTentacion was fatally shot outside a motorcycle shop in Deerfield Beach. One suspect, 22-year-old Dedrick D. Williams, has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder. According to recent reports, authorities believe at least two other men were involved. "We're really focused on trying this case in a court of law and not in the court of public opinion," attorney Mauricio Padilla, who pleaded Williams not guilty, told reporters earlier this week.
Wednesday, the Broward Sheriff's Office named 22-year-old Robert Allen as a person of interest in the shooting death. According to WPLG News, who first reported the news, authorities say Allen is seen in surveillance footage at the same motorcycle shop shortly before XXXTentacion's arrival.
At the time of XXXTentacion's murder, the divisive artist was awaiting trial on multiple charges including domestic battery by strangulation, aggravated battery of a pregnant woman, and false imprisonment. In an interview with the Miami New Times earlier this month, he declined to speak on those charges. At one point in the discussion, he proposed—then immediately answered—a question about his path. "Would I change anything about my journey?" he said. "Fuck no."
