XXL has responded accordingly, to requests from anxious XXXTentacion fans who remained hopeful that publication would released behind the scenes footage from his 2017 Freshman Cypher. This afternoon, XXX posted 3 and a half minutes never before seen footage, leading f with XXX’s kneeling verse. XXXTentacion went f in his trademark chopper style before passing f the mic with a timely sentence: “I don’t need security baby.”
Even in fhand freestyles such as this one, XXXTentacion demonstrate a willingness to explore his vulnerability. The late Broward rapper shared the fluorescent lighting with Playboi Carti, Madeintyo and Ugly God, in his first year eligibility. XXX saunters f to a podium after passing f to Ugly God, looking up at Carti while he adds playful commentary to the enchanting quietness the room. 2017 happened to be the first year, XXL did away with the deejay booth, all rappers sounding f acapella.
The video then cuts to dead silence, as XXXTentacion calls for solemnity, exclaiming “And if the world ever had an apocalypse I would kill all you fucks,” in the same kneeling position. He goes f for another minute or so, as the group sits in utter disbelief, XXX effectively controlling the energy flow the gathering.
See for yourself.
