XXXTentacion follows up on his gold-certified debut 17 with his sophomore album, ?.
The album has a mysterious title, but Tentacion says that’s because many answers are provided. “This is everything I promised you,” he told his fans. “This is me. I will never not be honest with you. I had to do this for you.”
X, who’s earned praise from J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, and Kylie Jenner, pours his heart out across the 18 tracks, including “hope,” “changes,” and “SAD!” Friends pop up to lend their talents, including Joey Bada$$, Travis Barker, and PnB Rock.
The aforementioned “hope” stands as a tribute to those who were killed in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, as well as Anthony Borges. The 15-year-old hero was shot multiple times while shielding other students during the Parkland, Fla. tragedy, where 17 people died.
To continue with those efforts, X has announced “A Helping Hand,” a tribute show scheduled for March 18 at Club Cinema in Pompano Beach, Fla.
