Kanye West made a special surprise appearance at the Skins album release party honoring the life of XXXTentacion, who passed away at just 20-years-old earlier this year, in Miami, Thursday night (Dec. 6). Yeezy notched the lone feature on X's first posthumous effort, which arrived on streaming services Friday (Dec. 7). 

West hit the stage after performances by Lil WaynePnB Rock, Trippie Redd, and Ski Mask The Slump God. Following the live debut of his fresh X collaboration "One Minute," the 41-year-old stuck around to perform an array of classics from his decorated discography, including "Black Skinhead," "Can't Tell Me Nothing," "Father Stretch My Hands," and "Blood on the Leaves."

The Chicago native designed an exclusive three-piece merchandise collection for the event, but it's unknown if the products will eventually hit his online store. JJ Villard and Adult Swim's King Star King also unleashed an explicit animated visual to coincide with "One Minute" on Friday (Dec. 7). 

Meanwhile, West just landed a 2019 Grammy nomination for producer of the year, non-classical.
