The life and times of Jahseh Onfroy, famous under the stage name, XXXtentacion, has been made into a documentary film and is set to premiere at the South by Southwest Film Festival, 2022.
Four years has gone by since the hurtful demise of talented rapper and singer, XXXtentacion, in a clumsy robbery attack in Florida. But plans to immortalize the young artiste have been in the works.
On the late rapper’s Instagram page, his estate broke the news.
“It’s finally here: a film that takes you through the complicated life of a troubled and controversial genius, XXXTENTACION,” they wrote in the caption.
“LOOK AT ME explores how Florida teenager Jahseh Onfroy became SoundCloud rapper, XXXTENTACION, one of the most streamed artists on the planet,” the announcement continued. “Through frank commentary from family, friends and romantic partners, and 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.”
“World premiere at SXSW ’22. Streaming on Hulu this summer,” concluded the post.
“Look At Me” will reportedly make its debut appearance at the South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, taking place from March 11th to the 20th.
