The EDM producer is the latest artist to release a posthumous collaboration with the controversial late rapper
The EDM DJ and producer shared a snippet of the track yesterday (October 24) on his Instagram, with the now-deleted post featuring the hashtag #LLJ, which is thought to mean “Long Live Jahseh”. XXXTentacion’s real name was Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy.
As promised, ‘Arms Around You’ – which also features Maluma and Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee, and was co-produced by Mally Mall and Jon FX – has arrived today (October 25) – check out the song below.
The arrival of the track makes Skrillex the latest musician to release music which features the late rapper. Since his death back in June, Onfroy has posthumously appeared on tracks by Trippie Redd, Ugly God, Sauce Walka, iLoveMakonnen, and Lil Wayne.
XXXTentacion was killed back in June after being robbed and shot as he left a Florida motorcycle dealership. He was 20 years old.
Law officials claim that his car was being blocked by another vehicle when two masked gunmen approached him. They shot him multiple times and fled with a Louis Vuitton bag reportedly filled with $50,000 (£39,000) in cash.
Earlier this week, a secret recording of the late rapper apparently confessing to a series of violent crimes was released to the media.
