PnB Rock and the late XXXTentacion came up together making music and shared a close relationship with one another. Following X’s sudden death June last year, the Philly-based rapper honored his friend by putting their “Middle Child” collaboration on his debut album TrapStar Turnt PopStar; now the track has accompanying visuals.
In the Derek Pike-directed music video above, we see two children portray PnB Rock and XXXTentacion having fun before setting up a Trap Juice lemonade stand in their front yard to earn money. PnB Rock himself shows up at the end of the video crossing his arms to tribute X. “I miss my bro!” PnB Rock told Complex. “I wanted this music video to make me smile.” Even X’s mother approved of the video, stating “PnB and his team did a wonderful job bringing this visual to life and honoring Jahseh in a way that would have made him proud.”
