Amid the lingering legal battles, Florida rapper XXXtentacion has managed to secure a multimillion-dollar record deal with Capitol Music Group. According to Billboard, the deal is under the label’s subsidiary Carolina said to be worth $6 million.
The 19-year-old rapper, whose real name is Jahseh Onfroy, dropped his first album back in August, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. However, one month later, Pitchfork released the disturbing details of a domestic violence incident with his then-girlfriend.
Following the release, the rapper was arrested and charged with aggravated battery of a pregnant woman, domestic battery by strangulation, false imprisonment and witness tampering in relation to the allegations. His trial is set to begin Dec. 11, however, the rapper has denied the charges.
