XXXTentacion has had a change of heart and claims he will be ending his contract with Capitol Music Group. This comes less than a week after the reported $6 million record deal was announced.The Florida rapper shared the news Wednesday night via Instagram: “I am not a signed artist, and I will not be releasing music for a very long time, I’m tired of this shit.”
Complex has reached out to CMG and XXXTentacion’s team for confirmation.
The deal was reportedly a distribution agreement between the rapper’s Bad Vibes Forever and and CMG’s indie distributor Caroline. According to Billboard, the contract would only “cover yet-to-be-released material.”
XXXTentacion has become one of hip hop most successful new comers for his presence on streaming sites. His debut project, 17, debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 200 and has since earned a total of 313,000 equivalent album units. Unfortuntely his work has been overshadowed by controversy, which includes physical altercations with concert-goers, disturbing domestic abuse allegations, and a publicity stunt that involved a fake suicide.
