XXXTentacion Is Working Acoustic-Style Music While Under House Arrest

Rapper XXXTentacion attends the BET Hip Hop Awards 2017 at The Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater on October 6, 2017 in Miami Beach, Florida

XXXTentacion shares a new practice session video with his fans.

Though he is currently being forced to enjoy (is that the word?) a judge-imposed stint of house arrest, following his release from jail. His time in prison may have been short-lived, but he’s still embroiled in legal trouble that has implicated him in multiple felonies related to witness tampering. With all this in mind, it’s a wonder that the young rapper is able to focus on making new music but, here he is, trying his hand at acoustic material.

In a video that he shared with his followers on Instagram, XXX is seen singing over the strums of an acoustic guitar. The instrument, being played by another man, provides a soft landing for his voice, which is changed considerably for the task at hand. He’s not bellowing intimidating-sounding bars into a mic and then distorting it beyond belief. This is XXXTentacion at arguably his most vulnerable-sounding from a music standpoint. Check out the full video below.

As one might expect, the reactions from listeners in the comments section were varied to say the least. X is a polarizing figure to be sure, but there seems to be a genuine effort on his part to go in a different direction musically. The entire video takes place in what looks like a bedroom, meaning that XXXTentacion is letting the collaborators come to him while he’s under house arrest, rather than it be the other way around and meeting them in a studio someplace.

Are you down with X’s acoustic sound? Or is it just too much of something different? Have your say in the comments.
