The career of embattled rapper XXXTentacion continues to take more unexpected turns after he announced on Friday (Oct. 27) that he was through with making music.
In an Instagram story, X appeared dejected by his ups and down in the music industry and said that due to the "hate," he's announcing his retirement. "Sad to announce I will not be making or releasing any music," he wrote. "I am tired of being mentally abused for trying to help people, I am tired of the hate, I'm done."
X's decision comes on the heels of his whopping $6 million deal with Capitol Records/Caroline that he inked earlier his week. After describing the employees at Capitol Records as "wonderful people," X announced that he'd be axing his deal with the label.
