The clamour for more and more XXXTentacion content will seemingly never cease, and now, the late-rapper’s documentary, Look At Me: XXXTentacion has shared a new trailer. Having premiered at SXSW earlier this year, this is the first extended look at the film many of the rapper’s fans will have had.
An official synopsis for Look At Me: XXXTentacion reads: “Look At Me: XXXTentacion explores how Jahseh Onfroy tapped raw talent, a gift for connecting with disaffected youth, and a mastery of social media to fashion himself into SoundCloud rapper XXXTentacion—one of the most streamed artists on the planet.”
Killed in 2018 at just 20-years-old, Onfroy was under investigation for numerous charges at the time of his death. As well as being a highly influential figure in the scene, it’s clear he was also a deeply troubled young man. Look At Me: XXXTentacion will aim to reveal the truth behind all of the headlines.
Directed by Sabaah Folyan, Look At Me: XXXTentacion will see interviews with the rapper’s mother, Cleopatra Bernard and his ex-girlfriend Geneva Ayala among many other close friends, in an attempt to unpick his mystery.
Onfroy’s mother says in the trailer for the new documentary: “My son would not sleep at night. He would tell me he hears voices.”
The synopsis continues: “Through frank commentary from family, friends and romantic partners as well as unseen archival footage, director Sabaah Folayan offers a sensitive portrayal of an artist whose acts of violence, raw musical talent and open struggles with mental health left an indelible mark on his generation before his death at the age of 20.”
The film will be released on Hulu in the US on 26th May, 2022 with no UK release date yet scheduled. Watch the trailer for Look At Me: XXXTentacion below.
