Following the sensation of his breakthrough smash “Look At Me!” and his debut performance at the 2017 Rolling Loud Festival, critically acclaimed South Florida rapper XXXTentacion has released Revenge [Bad Vibes Forever/EMPIRE], a compilation of fan favorite tracks. The project is available at all digital service platforms and streaming partners. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.
Following a string of steady viral hits such as “YuNg BrAtZ,” “Look At Me!” exploded from an underground anthem into a Billboard Hot 100 mainstay, landing at #34 on the chart and speeding towards an RIAA platinum certification. Since its release, the track has amassed over 200+ million streams, catapulting XXXTentacion’s stardom. Along the way, he has received the endorsement of everyone from Lil Yachty and Erykah Badu to Lil Uzi Vert and A$AP Rocky who proclaimed him, “The hardest in Florida” on social media. Moreover, he’s engendered the passion of a massive cult following spanning an audience of 1.6 million on Instagram, 891K on Soundcloud and 458K on Twitter.
Revenge also includes his latest single, “Looking for a Star,” where XXXTentacion shows off his vocal skills, and his ability to flow effortlessly through genres over a bouncy Diplo-produced electric beat. In less than a week, the track has already garnered 2.5 million Soundcloud plays.
About his collaboration with Diplo, X says, “I never want to be limited by genre, so it was an honor to work with someone who understands how to experiment with different sounds and create something special.”
The EP lays the groundwork for his forthcoming commercial release, 17.
This month, XXXTentacion heads out on “The Revenge Tour,” a 24- city North American tour with Ski Mask “The Slump God” and Craig Xen, which will kick off in Houston, TX and close in Atlanta, GA. XXL called his 2017 Rolling Loud Festival performance “the most high-energy set of the whole event.” If you didn’t see him at Rolling Loud, you don’t want to miss him live in your city!
Collaborative projects such as Members Only Vol. 1 and Members Only Vol. 2 with Ski Mask “The Slump God” in 2015 and last year’s Willy Wonka Was a Child Murderer EP instigated rabid fan chatter online. Showcasing various styles from a screech to a croon over lo-fi beats, 19 year-old XXXTentacion cooks up a hybrid of rap, R&B, punk rock, and metal. It’s a singular sound that’s already garnered the attention of Pitchfork, XXL, HotNewHipHop, and more. It’s simply XXXTentacion, and rap music might never be the same.
