XXXTentacion – “HOPE”

 

Florida rapper/singer/songwriter, XXXTentacion, returns with a new song dedicated to the victims of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that tragically transpired last week. X included the following message on his Soundcloud page:

follow your dreams, and know that even though you have lost, you have guardian angels watching over you, day in and day out, the last thing they want is for their lives to be lost in vein, make them proud! live full, healthy, genius lives!

The artist also took to Instagram (below) to explain his intent for the new track

XXXTentacion’s Debut Album, “17”

 

After months of waiting, XXXTentacion unleashes his very first album, 17 [Bad Vibes Forever/EMPIRE]. It’s availableHERE. Upon going live, the platinum-certified critically acclaimed South Florida alternative trailblazer and XXL “Freshman” Cover star vaulted into the Top 5 of iTunes Top Rap/Hip-Hop Albums Chart and the Top 5 of the Overall Top Albums Chart.

Awash in moody piano, strained guitars, and hypnotic minimalist production, 17asserts him as a young, vulnerable, and vital voice for his era by reinterpreting “alternative” as we know it. The post-millennial Generation Z’s answer to Kurt Cobain, XXXTentacion holds nothing back and cuts deep. You’ll feel each verse from the confessional spoken word of “The Explanation” where he says, “17. A collection of nightmares, thoughts, and real life situations I’ve lived. 17 is the number tattooed on the right side of my head, my own personal number. So to be explained in future interviews or instances, by listening to this album you are literally, and I cannot stress this enough, literally entering my mind. And if you are not willing to accept my emotion and hear my words fully, do not listen. I do not value your money. I value your acceptance and loyalty. Here is my pain and thoughts put into words. I put my all into this in hopes that it will help cure or at least numb your depression. I love you, thank you for listening. Enjoy.

Not only does he handle vocals, he also executive produced and plays instruments on 17.
