The XXXTentacion Foundation and EMPIRE presented the experience of a lifetime with the SKINS Album Release Party at RC Cola Plant in Miami during Art Basel.
The event was a celebration of the life and legacy of modern music icon XXXTentacion on the eve of the release of his first posthumous album SKINS – available now via Bad Vibes Forever/EMPIRE. Get it HERE.
The event-level experience was produced by SWARM and powered by 1AM, with it’s founder Yes Julz hosting the nights festivities including heart-felt musical tributes and captivating performances by Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Trippie Redd, Ski Mask the Slump God, Matt Ox, Rio Santana and Member’s Only with DJ Scheme. West brought down the house with an explosive performance, which included an animated video premiere of his SKINS banger “One Minute” and “Father Stretch My Arms” among others, while Wayne ignited a singalong on his tearful rendition of Tha Carter Vstandout and XXXTentacion collaboration, “Don’t Cry,” “Uproar” and more. XXXTentacion‘s mother, Cleopatra Bernard, Noreaga, Zoey Dollaz, and Tee Grizzly were in attendance along with a sea of devout fans. Check out the video recap here.
During the night, YEEZY also debuted a 3-piece merch capsule, printed on YEEZY blanks, featuring graphics by JJ Villard, which sold out immediately at the event. Additionally, Bravado curated a limited-edition “SKINS” collection inspired by the album exclusively available at the show.
