Craig Xen Visits XXXTentacion’s Gravesite in “Run It Back” Video
Craig Xen has unloaded the visual to his posthumous XXXTentacion-featured track, "Run It Back."
The visual, which went live on Tuesday (July 30), takes fans on a heist as Craig and his crew—which includes X's friend and former bodyguard TankHead666—run up on a car shop and come out with a bag. At the end, an "old" Xen sits in front of X's mausoleum and tells a handful of kids tales of the good ole' days of robbing and running.
"We got in the house, stashed the money and it was smooth sailing after that!" Grandpa Craig tells the group of kids, which includes X's little brother, Aiden.
The track lives on Craig's seven-track Broken Kids Club EP that dropped back in June. The project also features Ski Mask The Slump God, Smokepurpp and Flyboy Tarantino.
Craig, a longtime friend and member of X's Members Only crew, recently paid tribute to the late rapper on the one-year anniversary of his passing—which came just a day before the release of Broken Kids Club with the X feature on it. Talking to XXL, Craig spoke about the significance of the dates.
"It was coincidental it was able to be released around this time," he said. "I've been trying to get the song out forever. It took time to get it cleared. It was a long process. I'm grateful that it's out because it's a piece of the culture. It's almost like a fossil or an artifact. It's a piece of the culture that anybody who's been following the culture or been a part of and come to the shows, they know that those are from the days we didn't have money to get nice equipment and we were working with what we had."
