Much like Tekashi 6ix9ine’s Dummy Boy album, XXXTENTACION’s project Skinshas leaked. According to several social media posts, the 10-track album started making the rounds on Tuesday night (December 4), although any downloadable links of X’s posthumous effort have been coming down quickly.
“One Minute” finds Skins‘ sole guest Kanye West defending the abuse allegations X was facing prior to his death.
“So much hate at the top, it’s a lonely place/When you find out the opps ain’t the only snakes/And your spouse only know what you don’t erase/The world only know you by your worst mistakes/So spaz on they ass, that’s the only way/Smash on the gas down, Stoney, ayy/Crash and come back with a swollen face/And when I’m on my way, X hold the gate.
“Now your name is tainted, by the claims they paintin’/The defendant is guilty, no one blames the plaintiff/Gotta say it in Layman’s terms, while you wait on arraignments/Cause if the jury say you did it, the payment is heinous/Give me one minute, my lady just fainted/My babies is crying, you understand what I’m sayin’?”
X, who was fatally shot in June, was accused of beating his pregnant ex-girlfriend. After his 2016 arrest, he was formally charged with aggravated battery on a pregnant woman, domestic battery by strangulation, false imprisonment and first-degree witness tampering. He was expected to answer to the allegations in court. Following his passing, a judge had no choice but to close the case.
The official version of Skins is expected to arrive on Friday (December 7).
