One day after Kanye West announced he’ll be appearing on XXXTentacion’s upcoming album Skins, The Independent reports that West’s label YEEZY will be releasing merch to help promote the project. The line will be printed on blank YEEZY tees and printed with graphics crafted by Emmy-winning designer, JJ Villard.
Skins‘ tracklist was revealed earlier this week by the late rapper’s estate, showing that West will feature on “One Minute.” Skins will be released this Friday, December 7. Peep the full tracklist below.
Back in September, West said not sticking up for XXXTentacion while the young rapper was alive was “some pussy shit.”
XXXTentacion, real name Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy, was shot and killed in June 2018. At the time, he was awaiting trial for a 2016 abuse case involving an ex-girlfriend. He was charged by the Miami-Dade County state attorney’s office with aggravated battery of a pregnant victim, domestic battery by strangulation, false imprisonment, and witness tampering. The alleged victim detailed all these accusations in a January 2017 deposition. XXXTentacion plead not guilty to these charges, maintaining his innocence up until his death. However, in a tape obtained by Pitchfork in October, the late rapper admitted to domestic abuse and other violent crimes.
