XXXTENTACION REPORTEDLY SIGNED A MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR DEAL WITH CAPITOL ( xxxtentacion NETWORTH )
Despite being the most controversial rapper of 2017, Billboard has reported that XXXTentacion just signed a record deal with Capitol Music Group allegedly worth $6 million.
This major deal comes just one month after Pitchfork released excerpts from a 142-page transcript revealing disturbing details about XXXTentacion’s violent domestic abuse case. XXXTentaction’s music will be distributed by Caroline and will include previously unreleased music from the South Florida rapper.
X’s record deal is a surprising move by the music industry that has clearly paid attention to the Florida rapper’s success and infamy this year. His debut album, 17, debuted at the No. 2 spot on the Billboard 200 in August and is still currently within top 20. Despite the gruesome details of his court case, X has maintained his fanbase and has even gained the respect of big names like Kendrick Lamar.
Still, XXXTentacion’s trial is set to begin on December 11 later this year. And anyone who has read what’s out there about X knows that he’s got a heavy case against him.
Though Billboard says they confirmed news of the signing from multiple sources, there currently have been no public comments from XXXTentacion, his team or Capitol.
