Following a string of steady viral hits such as “Kill Me” and “YuNg BrAtZ,” “Look At Me!” has exploded from an underground anthem into a Billboard Hot 100 mainstay. In less than six months, the track has amassed over 150 million streams and is featured on top playlists including Apple, Spotify, Pandora and more. Along the way, XXXTentacion received the endorsement of everyone from Lil Yachty and Erykah Badu to Lil Uzi Vert and A$AP Rocky who proclaimed him, “The hardest in Florida” on social media. Moreover, he’s engendered the passion of a massive cult following spanning an audience of 441K on Soundcloud and 309K followers on Instagram. That’s just the beginning though.
Spewing raw rage and a powerful primal scream, “Look At Me!” illuminates his inimitable style steeped in a furious hip-hop cadence, alternative mystique, and heavy metal aggression.
Collaborative projects such as Members Only Vol. 1 and Members Only Vol. 2 with Ski Mask “The Slump God” in 2015 and last year’s Willy Wonka Was a Child Murderer EP instigated rabid fan chatter online. Showcasing various styles from a screech to a croon over lo-fi beats, XXXTentacion cooks up a hybrid of rap, R&B, punk rock, and metal. It’s a singular sound that’s already garnered the attention of Pitchfork, XXL, _HotNewHipHop__, and more. It’s simply XXXTentacion, and rap music might never be the same.
