(AllHipHop Rumors) Apparently a Capitol Music Group subsidiary has signed XXXTentacion to their label for a multi-million dollar deal.
Interesting! XXX has emerged as one of the most controversial and successful new era rappers in a very short amount of time.
XXXTentacion's debut album, did [good] numbers [for this generation] with him selling the equivalent of 87,000 units. This was the highest debut that the distribution company, Empire, had ever seen. The album also has sold over 313k units in the U.S. alone.
XXX's new deal is said to be through independent distributor, Universal Music Group's Caroline. The deal will reportedly be used to cover soon-to-be released material also.
While XXXTentacion may be on the rise musically, he's also facing a number of legal issues, with the most serious being an arrest, after his ex made allegations of domestic violence such as strangulation, false imprisonment, domestic battery, and witness tampering.
As of right now, it seems that most people believe that he did it, and are confused to why anyone would give him any kind of deal. The troubled rapper also has a cult-like following of fans that also seemed to not be phased by the allegations at the same time.
Are you a fan of XXX and his music? Do you think he's worth a $6 million deal??!
