XXXTentacion wants no parts of the fame. The Broward County native took to Instagram earlier today to announce his retirement.
X wrote in his IG Story, “Sad to announce I will not be making or releasing any music, I am tired of being mentally abused for trying to help people, I’m tired of the hate, I’m done.”
X has had rough week. X’s retirement announcement comes just days after he told followers he terminated his $6 million contract with Capitol Records.
“I am not a signed artist, and I will not be releasing music for a very long time, I’m tired of this shit,” he wrote in his Instagram story.
Sources told Billboard the deal is worth $6 million. X was officially signed under Capitol Music Group’s subsidiary Carolina. His deal was to cover unreleased music.
X was a hot sign for Caroline. The Florida artist’s debut album, “17,” was released via Bad Vibes Forever/Empire Records on Aug. 25, and debuted on the Billboard 200 with 87,000 albums sold in its first week. It has sold 313,000 album copies sold far.
