XXXTENTACION steps out with a new song titled “Riot”
On “Riot,” XXXTENTACION is giving his thoughts on the killings of African Americans across the United States and the riots that ensue because of them.
The song was initially released in mid-2015, months after the deaths of Michael Brown and more. After Brown’s murder, several riots ensued in Ferguson, Missouri.

The video premiered on September 12, 2017. “Riot” was likely included because its message was still important after several more unjust killings of African Americans by police had occurred in the United States after its initial debut.
