“SKINS“ is a Largely Metaphor-Free Album where Depression isn’t Hinted at Poetically but Rather Blatantly Invited to Throw Down
XXXTentacion has remained an enduring presence in the wake of his murder earlier this year. His violent past was reexamined when audio surfaced of the rapper confessing to domestic abuse and the stabbing of eight men.
He was also named the best new hip-hop artist at this year’s BET Hip-Hop Awards, a decision that caused Vic Mensa to call him out publicly during the ceremony.
In the midst of it all, he’s appeared on a number of tracks, including alongside late rapper Lil Peep on “Falling Down”; with Lil Wayne on Tha Carter V track “Don’t Cry”; and with Lil Pump on the Skrillex-produced single “Arms Around You”.

The album is scattered with similarly hushed tracks, including the quietly beautiful ‘Whoa (Mind In Awe’), on which ethereal xylophone is overlaid with distorted snare, Onfroy largely silent, leaving the track space to breathe, the quietude interrupted only by his whispered, wordless croon. ‘Difference (Interlude)’ is a sparse acoustic guitar number that combines slow finger snaps with a reprise of that wordless croon and the lyrics, “Girl, I’ll be different”.
This suggests an attempt to atone for his transgressions; it’s been reported that he donated $100,000 to a domestic violence charity before his death, which is actually just another point of controversy.
