Some of XXXTentacion's final words were about him dying young, he has also made public statements about people not caring until it's too late, on not putting yourself or your worth into relationships because people let you down and of course his now infamous song SAD which tackles thoughts on depression and suicide that stem from a break up and loss. 

Some of the lyrics from SAD read: "I gave her everything/ she took my heart and left me lonely/ I've been broken, heart's contentious/ I won't fix, I'd rather weep/ I'm lost and I'm found/ It's torture being in love  

His now infamous hook goes: Who am I? Someone that's afraid to let go uh,/  You decide, if you're ever gonna, let me know/ Suicide, if you ever try to let me go, uh/ I'm sad and low, yeah
