REPORT: XXXTentacion Signed $10 Million Deal For His 3rd Album

Leading up to his death, XXXTentacion was one of the most controversial names in music, but that didn’t stop him from selling music and signing lucrative record deals.

According to a new report from The New York Times, the rapper had just signed a $10 million dollar deal with Empire, the same independent record label that signed his first album. X’s third album had no set release date, but Empire founder said a “significant amount of material” had already been finished before he passed.

XXXTentacion was shot and killed on June 18, 2018. Following his death, his latest album ‘?’ hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200. His debut album ‘17′ reached the top 5 on the chart as well. Not to mention his track “SAD!” which broke Spotify’s 24-hour streaming record.

Earlier in the year, Spotify decided to remove rapper XXXtentacion from official playlists, citing a new policy on “Hate Content and Hateful Conduct,” which was later rolled back.

Details of a posthumous release from XXXTentacion remain unknown at this time, but one thing is for sure — his loyal following would be all ears.
