Before XXXTentacion was fatally shot back in June, the rapper was reportedly working on two albums, one called Skins and the other called Bad Vibes Forever.
Though we haven’t received an official release date for either album, insiders have confirmed a number of posthumous records were due to come out soon.
“We actually have nine more songs with X that are coming out,” producer Mally Mall revealed on ‘The Cruz Show’ last month. “It’s crazy, man. The kid was so talented. X was so talented that he would sound like three different artists on one song. It’s crazy. It’s sad because he predicted his death at 17. He thought he was gonna die.”

Friday morning (Nov. 9) at midnight, XXX’s team released a new single called “Bad!”
The track, produced by Keeley and John Cunningham, is said to be the first single from X’s first posthumous album Skins, which is due out before the end of the year.
Although an official release date for Skins has not been confirmed, it’s been reported that the album will drop on December 7th.
Like most of X’s recent singles, “BAD!”—clocking in at under two minutes—is an extremely short song, but it gets its message across.
X plays on the confidence of a gorgeous woman, reaffirming her knowledge that she’s beyond fine. The instrumental would sound perfect at a strip club, and X’s syrupy vocals melt over the hypnotic drums.
