Controversial rapper XXXTentacion says people fear what they don’t understand and I guess people don’t understand his image. The Florida rapper blackened his eyes dyed his hair grey and shaved off his eyebrows clean.
It’s unclear what message X is trying to send or what is his end goal, but some fans say this is just more cry for attention to sell records. After all, he has a new album 17 out now and he has to find some way to promote it. In a video clip posted on Instagram, he explained that people fear what the don’t understand.”
“Humans fear what they don’t understand always and forever,” XXXTentacion said. “Isn’t clear that I don’t give a f***. If you feel as if your physical identity has to be the same as everyone else just be socially acceptable then your stupid. Be yourself.”
Last week, XXXTentacion released a controversial music video for his breakout hit single “Look At Me” where he hung a little boy in front of another. The video was ridicule by hip hop fans across the spectrum, but he defended it saying its just a piece of art that he used to bring awareness to racial inequality in the country.
