Nearly four months after his death, XXXTentacion has posthumously released the official video for his hit single “Moonlight.”
The two-minute video, which was written and creative-directed by XXX himself, shows the late rapper wandering around an outdoor party with a smile on his face as excited youths enjoy the gathering while he keeps to himself listening to music through wireless headphones.
The video ends with a dedication to the 20-year-old rapper, born Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy, which reads: “Energy never dies. He is amongst us. Long live Jah.”
“Moonlight,” which peaked at No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 (his second-highest charting release), is the third single release from the album ?—the last project XXX released while he was alive. The video marks the rapper’s second posthumous release, following “SAD!”—which was released just 10 days after his tragic shooting death.
X also posthumously appeared on Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter V album in the song “Don’t Cry” and he’s also expected to be featured on Kanye West’s upcoming album Yandhi.
X, who was shot to death in an apparent robbery on June 18th, had reportedly signed a massive record deal worth around $10 million just weeks before his passing and was already working on his third album, for which he had already recorded “a significant amount of material.” That album is set to be released this fall.
Four men have been arrested and charged in connection with his murder, and just a few days ago, surveillance video footage that captured his murder was released to the public after it was shown in court.
