The Florida rapper shared the news Wednesday night in an Instagram story, writing: “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 the most successful and polarizing young rappers in the game. It was about two months ago when the 19-year-old dropped his first studio album, 17, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 200 and has since earned a total of 313,000 equivalent album units. His work has been overshadowed by controversy, which includes physical altercations with concert-goers, disturbing abuse allegations, and a publicity stunt that involved a fake suicide.
