XXXTentacion is back with another claim of quitting music, albeit one quite similar to the one we heard literally just two days ago. If keeping up with XXX is something you do in your free time, then surely you recall his claim Wednesday that he was calling off his reported $6 million deal with Capitol Records.

Of course, record deals aren't typically something you can just call off whenever you want. In fact, a rep for XXXTentacion subsequently confirmed that the "Look at Me" singer is, in fact, still very much signed to Capitol. "XXXTentacion is signed to Caroline/Capitol Music Group," a rep told Complex.


Friday, XXXTentacion reworded his claim by telling his Instagram followers he was "sad to announce" that he would not be "making or releasing any music." According to XXXTentacion, he arrived at this decision due to feeling "mentally abused."


Earlier this month, XXXTentacion was given a trial date for his 2016 charges of aggravated battery of a pregnant woman, false imprisonment, domestic battery by strangulation, and witness-tampering. Though the trial was initially set to begin this month, Pitchfork reported the trial is now set to begin Dec. 11 in Miami, Florida.

XXXTentacion's manager describes him as "a young kid that was lost and needed a chance in life," while others completely disagree. 

Once, in response to those calling him a "domestic abuser," XXXTentacion said he would "domestically abuse y'all little sister's pussy from the back."
