A new XXXTENTACION compilation album is dropping later this month, coinciding with the recent release of the late rapper’s Hulu documentary Look At Me: XXXTENTACION. Due out June 10, Look At Me: The Album is described as an “audio companion” to the aforementioned film and features 25 songs divided into two sides.
Side A contains 11 of XXX’s earliest recordings that will be making their debut on streaming services, including “NEVER,” “King of the Dead” and the Ski Mask The Slump God-assisted “FUXK.” Side B, meanwhile, compiles 13 of the Florida native’s biggest songs, from his 2015 breakout hit “Look At Me!” to “SAD!,” “Jocelyn Flores” and “Moonlight.”
Tacked onto the end of the album is XXXTENTACION’s recently released collaboration with Kanye West, “True Love,” which plays during the documentary’s end credits. The song also appears on Ye’s DONDA 2 LP, which dropped exclusively via his $200 stem player in February.
While Look At Me: The Album celebrates XXXTENTACION’s legacy, the Sabaah Folayan-directed Hulu documentary takes a more honest look at the SoundCloud sensation’s controversy-stained career.
In a particularly powerful moment in the film, XXX’s mother, Cleopatra Bernard, sits down face-to-face with his ex-girlfriend, Geneva Ayala, who accused the rapper of horrific domestic abuse during their tumultuous relationship.
“My son is no longer here, and I feel like it’s up to me now to make amends and try to right his wrongs as much as I can,” Bernard tells Ayala. “I would actually like to hear you tell your story because like I said, my son died, and he’s never admitted it to me — I don’t think he would want me to see him in that light or know that side of him.
“Jahseh was wrong for what he did. There’s no excuse for that, period. But I just want the world to know that he wasn’t that same person anymore, but the past is still part of his story.”
The rapper, born Jahseh Onfroy, was shot and killed outside a motorcycle dealership in Deerfield Beach, Florida in June 2018, cutting his life short at the tender age of 20. Four suspects have been charged with first-degree murder among other charges, although a trial has yet to be scheduled.
