Produced by FADER Films, the documentary “Look At Me: XXXTENTACION“ and its bonus companion piece “In His Own Words: XXXTENTACION“ will be released internationally on 22 November 2022.

To celebrate, we’re going BIG with #TOXICbyXXX: an open verse challenge for creators around the world. Put your unique verse on a super exclusive, unreleased XXXTENTACION track and pay homage to the gifted young artist’s legacy.
