Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy AKA known as XXXtentacion was a young black rapper that had his life taken from him way too early. He gave hope to teenagers that struggled to keep hope by showing them that life isn’t as bad as it seems and that the storm or fight we are facing is going to come to an end one day, we just gotta hold on and fight. The tiny dark world we live in has light, we just gotta find it. XXXTentacion drew attention to situations that a lot of millennials over-looked. XXXTentacion made an effort to change our dark tiny world that we created within ourselves.
XXXTentacion starting making music to help him cope with his own depression and his own demons he was fighting within himself and he didn’t realize the impact his music was going to have on people. When XXXTentacion realized how many people his music touched, he devoted his young life to showing everyone who was struggling with depression that it isn’t always thunder clouds and lightning, that one day it’s going to be sunflowers and rainbows.
In many of his songs or videos he made of him speaking from the heart he stated that there is nothing more than a simple person in life that isn’t struggling with their own issues and that he struggled with the same things we do. While many kids looked up to him for his music and his talent and his brains, I looked up to him for his strength and how he is overcoming his depression and how is still giving me hope to keep fighting and how he saved my life when I thought it wasn’t worth saving.
“ Who am I? Someone that’s afraid to let go?” In these song lyrics XXXTentacion speaks to people that are having a hard time finding themselves and that are struggling to cope with their depression and the battles they are fighting within themselves. “ Suicide, if you ever try to let go.” XXXTentaction speaks about suicide and how people have power over what they do even if they don’t think they do. XXXtentacion speaks to who that fight battles within themselves and who need a guide to get through it. In the song SAD! , XXXTentacion reaches for the ones who lost something or someone that they loved deeply and puts our pain in words when we can’t. He makes us know that we give him hope and he is trying to give us that back by making music and shining light on things that people don’t focus on .
In these words “ I won’t fix, I’d rather weep” XXXTentacion reaches for people who would rather dwell in the pain and make no effort to rise above it. He doesn’t diminish our ways of dealing with our pain but he gives us better ways to cope by being a role model towards us and showing us how to hold our head up high and fight against the pain and rise above everyone’s negative opinions. “ I’m lost, then I’m found.” He is saying that one minute you find yourself and you’re on the high road and living your best and amazing life, then the next the depression the and the anxiety is overwhelming and it’s overpowering you so that you feel like you’re suffocating, almost drowning so that you lose yourself and let it take ahold of you because it seems like the only thing you can do.
In the song SAD! XXXTentacion really just focuses on the fact that when you are dwelling in your pain or letting you depression is taking over your life that it feelings like your drowning but without water. He isn’t condoning suicide, He is shining and light on the fact that many people consider about taking their own life because they feel like no one is their for them, they are alone in this battle. He wants people to know what’s going on and hopes that they will take his words seriously and try to changing this patterns. XXXTentacion isn’t just known for songs or music, He is also known for his intellectual speeches and motivational lessons his taught many of his followers. That they are currently still passing on even after his death.
Every follower XXXTentacion has and still is ganging is trying to help change the world just like he was. XXXTentaction name will forever live on and will forever have a place in my heart. XXXTentacion touched many people. He was destined for something more than greatness.
