XXXTentacion Appears To Announce Early Retirement

The controversy surrounding XXXTentacion continues to mount. He recently signed a deal with Capitol Records worth $6 million. Just a few days after signing the deal, he announced he would be terminating it. Now, he takes to Instagram to announce what appears to be a message of retirement, claiming he’s tired of the hate and mental abuse. A representative for the rapper claimed he is still signed to Capitol so maybe the struggles are part of coming into the limelight. Regardless, he’s still facing a potential domestic abuse charge, which can’t be good for his psyche, so it will be interesting to see what happens to the young Florida artist next.
