XXXTentacion “Moonlight” Video: Watch the Late Rapper Wander Through the Night
Since the untimely death of XXXTentacion in June, fans of the young rapper have been treated to posthumous songs and a music video. The releases continued on Sunday (Sept. 30), when the official video for "Moonlight" dropped.
Creative directed by X and directed by JMP, the video finds X sitting under the moonlight in a world of his own as an outdoor party takes place around him. With his headphones on, XXXTentacion wanders through the night, as the partygoers are unaware of him. Throughout the video, X clearly has his eyes on a woman but never works up the courage to approach her.
"Moonlight" is the second posthumous music video from XXXTentacion following the release of the "Sad!" visual in June. Along with videos, fans have also gotten a chance to hear X on new music thanks to posthumous releases such as his "Falling Down" collaboration with Lil Peep and "Don't Cry" with Lil Wayne.
The collab with Weezy was made after X's passing and was put together by producer Z3n and Ben Billions. According to Z3n, he had some unfinished material recorded with X that he shared with Lunch Money Lewis, who later sent it to Wayne and a Republic Records executive. Producer Ben Billions then put the entire song together.
The late rapper will also be featured on Kanye West's upcoming Yandhi album.
