XXXtentacion's latest posthumous track spotlights dancehall royalty!
On Friday (July 19), the late rapper's estate released "Royalty," featuring Vybz Kartel, Stefflon Don and Ky-Mani Marley. The single, produced by Jon Fx, is both dark and energetic with an uptempo backing.
For the chorus, Ky-Mani smoothly rhymes: "Royalty, inna mi bloodline/Dem soldiers yell on these front lines/Don't know why, know why, but demons come to test us sometimes/In my scheme from longtime/Defeat where you're confined.
Next up is X, who raps the first verse. "Man, what's true is that the shit change/When you use me for the money and the cars, you're the big brains," he spits. "Yeah, it's funny how sh*t change/Boy, shorty wanna young ni**a drawls, that sh*t stains/In a poor house, Biscayne/Now I'm in the coupe with a crib, ni**as Chris Paine/Never can forget all the nights it was just pain/Now I'm finna come for the throne, don't forget, mane."
Steff and Vybz close out the track.
"Royalty" comes a week before the release of the deluxe edition of X's ? album.
As fans know, the 20-year-old rapper was tragically gunned down outside a motorsports store in June 2018. Since his death, his girlfriend welcomed their first child, a baby boy.
