XXXTentacion Says He’s Terminating His $6 Million Deal With Capitol Records

XXXTentacion claims he has ended his contract with Capitol Music Group, less than a week after the reported $6 million record deal was announced.

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
