Not only will West, 41, appear on the slain rapper’s posthumous album “Skins,” but he will also release merchandise to commemorate the song.
Yeezy will launch a three-piece mini-capsule collection to coincide with the release of the album at a party in Miami on Thursday night, reports XXL. The blank T-shirts will features artwork by Emmy-winning designer JJ Villard.
West, who supplied a verse for the song “One Minute,” is the only guest featured on “Skins,” which will drop on Friday.
Despite the fact that XXXTentacion was awaiting trial for domestic violence against a pregnant ex-girlfriend at the time of his death, along with witness harassment and tampering charges, West has not wavered in his support of the late rapper.
In September, West wrote in a since-deleted Instagram post that not voicing support for XXXTentacion before his June murder was “some p—y s—t.”
According to a leak of “Skins,” West continues to defend XXXTentacion on their song, rapping, “Now your name is tainted, by the claims they paintin’/The defendant is guilty, no one blames the plaintiff.”
