Let's start with his name as confusing as it looks it actually has a French ring to it. You have to hear the young fella pronounce it. It will tickle you. But the spelling just looks like a new age porn star honestly. I was scared to google it at work in fear that I would receive a porn-hub pop up. I have so many mixed feelings about this kid but as a poet and artist myself I do respect his craft. I will try my best to separate the artist XXXtentacion from the boy Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy.
Let me analyze this new album '17' that has struck up a lot of controversy from the lyrics to the visuals. He starts the album off with a disclaimer. He states that the entire album is a collection of thoughts, nightmares and real life situations. The album is 11 songs and 22 minutes long that's an average of 2 min per song. How many thoughts, nightmares and real life situations can a person fit into 22 minutes? That was my first thought. You know he has to be young if he can fit his life into 22 minutes. I need about 22 years to tell you about my 30 years on this earth.
Jahseh is also from Florida and I have a soft spot for all my Florida artist because I'm from Florida too and I support all my Florida people climbing the ladder to success. I always tell people it's to hot in Florida. The heat will create anger in you. This guy act like he was left in the heat too damn long. When listening to his music I don't know whether to kill somebody or kill myself. The sad part is that I only think about killing when listening to him. The teacher in me immediately notices his short comings though. Clearly this little boy is disturbed. I don't even have to know where he grew up at to understand that he probably didn't grow up with both parents in the house. With one parent absent he is missing some valuable lessons in life. He is also probably battling anger management issues in which he becomes very aggressive.
XXXtentacion has a song with a very disturbing visual. The name of the song is called 'Look at Me'. This song is the more popular one that led to a lot of his celebrity status. You have to watch the video all the way through. I'm just going to spill the beans. At the end of the video a little black boy hangs a little white boy with a noose. Not only is this racially disturbing but XXXtentacion is not African American. So again my young boy what was the purpose of this video and song that don't match? You are of Indian, Egyptian, German, Jamaican and Italian decent. You can't pick sides in this racial battle sir. Please have several seats.
We all heard about your girlfriend who you allegedly abused as well. Knowing what you rap about and your past upbringings. I would say it's not far fetched to call you guilty buddy. I hate to say this but if you don't channel all that negative energy into positive immediately then you're going to make yourself a male African American statistic. Look at his recent altercation with the Migo's. This XXXtentacion character is a hot mess.
