WATCH: Social Justice Rap Video Depicts Young White Boy Being Hanged

Florida rapper and alleged serial abuser XXXTentacion has released a new racially-charged music video for his song Look at Me, addressing alleged police brutality and racism. In the video, XXXTentacion is disturbingly depicted hanging a white child in front of a black boy.

The video begins with a group of students starting a riot in a classroom and beating the hell out of a white teacher with dildos.

“Can’t keep my d*** in my pants,” brags the rapper.

The lyrics and video then reference the murder of Emmett Till — a black teenager castrated and murdered for allegedly whistling at a white woman — the recent fatal police shooting of Philando Castile, LA officers beating Rodney King, and the death of Heather Heyer at a neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, last month.

XXXTentacion is then seen walking two children, one white and one black, toward a noose. He then hangs the white boy in front of the black child.

The Floridian also unleashes a mix of racially-charged and violent lyrics, some of which scold Black Lives Matter rioters for trashing local businesses: “Look at all the stores you wreckin’ — N***a I reckon — Think about the people who own it for about a second — I know you got your problems but brother they got theirs,” he raps.

The video ends with an XXXTentacion monologue seemingly calling for an end to all racism and racially-sparked violence.

“I can go on forever about the fact that murder is murder and whether you’re black or white, you should always feel free to voice our opinion,” he says. “But to act out on these irrational thoughts on every shape or form is disgusting. You cannot, as black or white, call yourself the supreme race when moved out of your comfort by the opposition’s color, their skin color. That is no form of being or demonstrating being a supreme being.”

The rapper is also well-known for his misogyny. For instance, here are some disturbingly sexist lyrics from XXXTentacion:

I took a white b***h to starbucks
That lil’ b***h got her throat f***ed
I like to rock out, I’m misfit
My emo b***h like her wrist slit
Curly hair b***h like I’m Corbin
Got like three b***hes, I’m mormon
S***t on your main b***h’s forehead
Don’t want your p***y, just want head

Moreover, court documents recently revealed a litany of domestic violence allegations against XXXTentacion, made by his on-and-off-again girlfriend, with whom he has a child.

Per court documents, as reported by UPROXXX:

When XXXTentacion got out of jail, they moved back in together in North Miami. (On September 16, 2016, court records show, XXXTentacion agreed to house arrest, and was released.) He told her he knew she had cheated on him. He put a knife to her neck, strangled her “a little bit,” and called her a “ho,” she said. That night, he woke her up and told her to go outside, where he picked up an empty glass beer bottle and demanded that she tell him the truth or, “I’m going to fuck you up.” She replied that she already was telling him the truth, that she had cheated and was sorry. He dropped the bottle, slapped her, and let her go back to bed.


About a week later, she and XXXTentacion moved to an apartment in Sweetwater, Fla. In two incidents there, XXXTentacion grabbed her by the neck, strangled her, and forced her down on the bed before another person who lived there came to the rescue. “I’m like scared,” she said, recalling how she felt. “It’s like he’s going to like end up killing me or something.”


In early October 2016, she found out that she was pregnant by XXXTentacion. The pregnancy was planned by both of them. On the afternoon of October 6, he told her to move from the bed they were lying on. He then went out onto the balcony, where she could still hear him, and called up the person she had slept with while XXXTentacion was in jail, demanding to know everything. When XXXTentacion returned inside, he told her, “You need to tell me the truth right now or I’ll kill you and this jit.” She said that “jit” was slang for the unborn child.

He then started elbowing, head-butting, and punching her. He strangled her until she almost passed out. He took her to the bathroom and demanded one last time that she tell him everything or he would kill her in the bathtub. She couldn’t even recognize her face in the mirror — it looked “distorted” — and her left eye was completely shut and “leaking blood.” She was losing vision. She vomited.

Denying the recent accusations of domestic violence, XXXTentacion claimed, “I only beat the p****.”
