Launching his career
XXXTentacion was born as Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy in the city of Lauderhill, Florida. The 19 year old rapper began his career by uploading snippets of his songs on SoundCloud. The first track that he shared on the website, in 2014, under his stage name, XXXTentacion was called, Vice City. It got very popular among the fans of hip-hop music and has been played more than six million times so far. He then came out with two EPs, ‘The Fall’ and ‘Ice Hotel.’
After that, Onfroy went on to release more music and soon started to build a loyal fan base. He later began to experiment with his sound and tried out other genres like rock and trap as well. In an interview with HotNewHipHop he stated, “I do multi-genre, I don’t just rap. I like to consider myself an artist.” XXXTentacion soon met Ski Mask the Slump God and the duo came out with a couple of collaborative albums titled, ‘Members Only Vol.1’ and ‘Members Only Vol.2’ in 2015. A year later, he churned out two more extended plays, ‘ItWasntEnough’ and ‘Willy Wonka Was a Child Murderer’ both of which incorporated elements of indie music and heavy metal.
In 2017, the world got to listen to XXXTentacion’s debut mixtape titled, ‘Revenge.’ It climbed to the forty fourth and twenty first spot on the Billboard 200 and the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums respectively. Moreover, it also charted at the seventy fifth spot on the Canadian Albums Chart. The mixtape featured eight songs, some of which were released previously on his official SoundCloud account.
‘Revenge’ was also supported by a single, Look At Me! which became a big hit. Rojas and Duval served as the producers of the song and it contained samples from the track, Changes which was released by Mala. Look At Me! became his highest charting single to date as it reached at the thirty fourth spot on the Billboard Hot 100 and has now crossed more than forty two million views on YouTube.
The young MC has also spawned a couple of new songs including, Gospel. The single featured South Korean and Indonesian rappers, Keith Ape and Rich Chigga. Produced by a very talented disc jockey, Ronny J, it was released by Empire Records on May 12th and has landed at the seventh spot on the Bubbling Under R&B/Hip-Hop Singles.
