The family and team of the late rapper FXXXXY have posthumously released his debut album Do You Trust Me?.
The Dallas rapper-producer, whose real name was Maudell Watkins, died in September after facing complications from a medical procedure. He was 25 years old and rising through the hip hop ranks via credits for Future’s High Off Life album and releases by Internet Money and Gunna.
Last week, FXXXXY’s family announced that his nine-track debut album would be released posthumously. The project ends with two 2018 collaborations with Gunna and Lil Durk, “Need U” and “Follow Me,” respectively.
“FXXXXY was looking forward to building his fanbase with his unique sound, straight from his heart and soul. When you hear this project, you will hear his passion for creating music that began at six years old. When you hear his lyrics and vocals, you will feel his presence,” they wrote in a statement.
“We are still in great pain over losing FXXXXY, and we also acknowledge the pain of many others he touched, whether through music or friendship. He is absolutely missed, but his contributions to the music industry will live forever. Please enjoy his debut project; your support is very much appreciated! Long Live FXXXXY!”
They also shared a trailer for the album featuring shots of FXXXXY in the studio, and snippets of the artist giving his view on his career and hustle. Watch that below:
