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.

The grand prize winner will take home a whopping $20,000 cash, XXXTENTACION merchandise and film posters signed by X’s mother Cleopatra Bernard and the manager of his estate, Solomon Sobande. 

2nd and 3rd place winners will snag XXXTENTACION merchandise and signed film posters.
