XXXTENTACION might not be with us anymore but his music is always going to be there for us. A documentary of his life called LOOK AT ME! is only a few days away from release. 50 Cent was seen attending a private screening of the show with his mother.
The mother of the late rapper, Cleopatra Bernard, shared a pair of Instagram photos of herself posted up next to the hip hop legend. She wrote in the caption “Private screening with the coolest motherf****r on the planet @50cent.” They were grateful to have 50 in the studio for such an event.
XXXTENTACION’s manager Solomon Sobande provided a further context in an Instagram post of his own. He said: “Screened the @xxxtentacion doc for @50cent! Great to have the blessings of one of the biggest artists in tv & film! I have a feeling we got more in store!” They announced the film’s impending arrival last month with an Instagram post.
Directed by Sabaah Folayan and produced by FADER Films, LOOK AT ME! chronicles the short life of the impactful yet controversial artist. The documentary will debut at the film festival segment of SXSW, which takes place in Austin, Texas March 11- 20. The anticipation around the film is huge as people are excited to see the portrayal of the rapper.
XXXTENTACION was shot and killed on June 18, 2018 outside of RIVA Motorsports in Deerfield Beach, Florida. Nearly four years later, the whole idea of a documentary is being materialized. LOOK AT ME explores how Florida teenager Jahseh Onfroy’s journey from a SoundCloud rapper to being one of the most streamed artists on the planet.
People will finally get to have a look at the life of one of the most impactful artists in hip-hop’s recent history. With only limited time in his hand, he has provided us with a number of classics, and now we will witness his rise to fame.
