XXXTentacion's estate is finding creative ways to keep releasing his work even though he's gone. Their latest is the video for Skins track "Bad!" The visuals feature multiple animated versions of X walking through some sort of alien landscape.
The anime-leaning video shows a charged-up, shirtless X making trees grow from the rocky soil. Another version of X wears a hoodie while doing some waterbending and hiding out in a cave. Eventually the trees consume X before the whole planet goes up in a blinding flash of light.
After his murder during an armed robbery attempt this past summer, XXXTentacion has remained in the headlines thanks to unreleased collaborations and a slew of famous folks coming to his defense. Kanye West notably gave a defensive verse on Skins, alluding to his alleged abuse of his pregnant then-girlfriend. Kanye also released a capsule collection featuring designs inspired by their song together.
Kodak Black connected the late rapper to Malcolm X in a song off his new project Dying to Live, noting that both men were shot to death. In family matters, X's mother is currently suing his half-sister for libel after she claimed that someone in the artist's inner circle helped set up his murder.
“It was definitely an inside job,” she said. “There’s somebody on the inside that knew where he was going to be and the exact time he was leaving for the murderers to know when to come and to do what they did. It definitely was set up.”
