XXXTentacion, real name Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, was killed in a shooting aged 20 as he left a car dealership in Miami, Florida in June 2018.

The documentary charts the late rapper’s ascent on SoundCloud, his struggles with mental health and his history of domestic abuse charges. In 2018, he confessed to a series of violent crimes in a secret recording.

The cover art for ‘True Love’ was designed by West and features handwritten notes from XXXTentacion, which come from a journal discovered by the late rapper’s mother. The notes include: “Am I supposed to pretend to be heartless?”, “Love love love”, and “A feeling you just can’t explain”.

‘True Love’ follows West’s recent Fivio Foreign and Alicia Keys team-up ‘City Of Gods’ and ‘Eazy’, his joint single with The Game, which were the latest ‘Donda 2’ tracks to get an official release. ‘City Of Gods’ also appears on Fivio Foreign’s debut album ‘B.I.B.L.E’.

The first video for ‘Eazy’ earned widespread criticism for its portrayal of violence against Pete Davidson, who is currently involved with West’s ex-wife, Kim Kardashian.
