Several fans of the rapper quickly expressed concern, apparently sure of the authenticity of the grim visual.
X reappeared on social media, hours later, that the world may know the scene was of a upcoming music video, and rebuked those who did not "catch".
"It was a support for my music video," X said in a livestream. "It was a piece of the music video. Everyone needs to chill the fuck out. I was just trying to get a preview. I did not know that people don't catch on ... I was in the middle of the recording, so I could not explain myself ... I'm not playing with the suicide. Mostly because I had a girl kill herself in my fuckin' hotel room. Not even two, three months ago."
X is preparing the release of his new album, 17 years old, which doubled as a project to help those who suffer from depression. 17 expected to arrive Friday (August 25).
