On Thursday morning (June 28), the video for XXXTentacion’s “SAD!” song left viewers in a mixed state of emotions. Within the visual, directed by JMP, the Florida native is seen battling his inner and outer demon in order to turn over a new leaf.
After the video’s release, Twitter users immediately published their thoughts; some tried to decipher its message while others were left in awe. “The funeral represents the death of his old self,” one Twitter user wrote. “He was in a constant battle with his inner demons, which we all are, and finally gained the power to defeat them.”
Others felt the video was “too spot on” and left them in a state of confusion. One Twitter user said the “SAD!” music video reminded them of Tupac’s posthumous visual for “I Ain’t Mad At Cha.”

I just saw the new XXXTENTACION video and eerie isn’t the word. The man was looking at himself in casket being instructed by angels. Reminds me of the I Ain’t Mad at Cha video.

I see people already misinterpreting XXXTentacion’s “SAD!” video. The funeral represents the death of his old self. He was in a constant battle with his inner demons, which we all are, and finally gained the power to defeat them. Let’s not start the Makaveli theories. 🙄

Okay so from my point of view he’s fighting his past and maybe depression. He’s fighting with the old xxxtentacion. Because he wanted to be a better person but no one gave him a chance. SAD shit right there
