Ski Mask speaks on XXXTentacion before explaining the lyrics to “Faucet Failure.”
Ever since XXXTentacion passed away this summer, Ski Mask the Slump God has been having trouble processing his loss. The two rappers were best friends, spending time together in a correctional facility before they formed Members Only. While they had their differences at times, they reunited at Rolling Loud in Miami to deliver a joint performance that ended up being one of the last times X took the stage. The late artist has popped up frequently for posthumous verses but many were surprised to see that Ski Mask hadn’t gotten some of his friend’s vocals for his recent Stokeley album. As he broke down his lyrics for “Faucet Failure,” the Florida rapper spoke on his craziest memory with Jahseh, bringing it back to a time where they were both tripping on acid.https://www.instagram.com/p/BqyTpjSFJ1c/?utm_source=ig_embed
“We’re just chilling,” said Ski. “He has no shirt on, he has his shoes on, pants on. This n***a runs full sprint and jumps into the lake. I’m talking about this dirty lake – alligators, Florida… We’re just staring like ‘Is he gonna come back up?'” Ski Mask goes on to explain that X made his way back up and only let the water go up to his nose as he spookily started swimming back to them and whispering, “I’m okay.”
The rapper told the funny story just before he dove into his “Faucet Failure” lyrics with Genius, noting that he wrote the song in ten minutes.
