Kanye West isn’t backing away from his XXXTentacion collaboration.
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.”
