XXXtentacion - ?

Edit: holy wow this thing got ugly

I had never given xxxtentacion a chance, even after his horrendous death. I could talk his controversy but frankly I'm just talking music here. I didn't want to be biased on this record. I'm sometimes empathetic to a fault. I wanted to wait until the dust settled a bit before I jumped into one of his records. I'd be lying if I said I didnt enjoy this record at times. I'd say almost half the tracks actually. I actually adore Moonlight SAD! and Floor 555! With that said, its disappointing how bloated and melodramatic he comes off. Maybe Have A Nice Life made me calloused but oh well. Especially that intro, but frankly I'm willing to listen out of curdiosy. I will say it is interesting how xxx and Denzel Curry kind of influenced each other on their respective albums during the time xxx lived in Curry's house. I feel his story says more than his music ever does and I feel bad for saying that because I've honestly been in that mental state before and I get it. I honestly think he could have been one of the best rappers and I'm not saying that because he died. I can hear the potential he had musically. I will say listening to "before I close my eyes" after his death is probably one of the most eerie experiences I've had all year.

Yooo glad to see someone who understands the crazy potential within the guy. Too bad he wasn't given enough time to build on it.
