Capitol Music Group's subsidiary Caroline has signed XXXTentacion to a record deal, multiple sources tell Billboard, with one saying the deal is worth $6 million. The 19-year-old South Florida MC, born Jahseh Onfroy, has emerged as one of the most successful -- and controversial -- new rappers in the industry since his emergence in February of this year with the single "Look At Me." The deal is through indie distributor Caroline, and will cover yet-to-be-released material.
XXXTentacion's debut full-length, 17, was released via Bad Vibes Forever/EMPIRE Records on Aug. 25, and debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 with 87,000 equivalent album units, the largest debut in EMPIRE's history. The album has earned 313,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. through the week ending Oct. 12, according to Nielsen Music.

E-40 Sues Author of 'Captain Save a Hoe' Book
Look up in the sky -- it's a bird, it's a plane ... oh wait, it's E-40 suing someone over "Captain Save a Hoe," mayne!
40 Water just filed suit against author Erika Kane and her publishers for a book she recently started selling, which is titled "Captain Save a Hoe" ... ya know, the same name he used for his hit 1993 song. Safe to say, 40's not having it.
In the docs, obtained by TMZ, 40 says he owns the rights to "Captain Save a Hoe" and Kane using it word for word on her book is straight-up ripping him off, not to mention unfairly profiting off his song and the character he created with it.
He's asking a judge to yank the book from shelves and for any dough she's made from it so far.

Watch 21 Savage’s Stunningly Awful NBA Halftime-Show Performance
Judging by all available footage, the young Atlanta rap star 21 Savage has never been much of a live performer. His laconic, cold-blooded style isn’t really suited to the stage, and he doesn’t have the presence to sell his threats. But up until this morning, we never really knew just how bad he could be.
Last night, Savage did the halftime show at the Hawks/Kings game at Atlanta’s Philips Arena, and the result was something just historically awful. Savage “performed” his hit “Bank Account” and his verse from Post Malone’s chart-topper “Rockstar.” But he wasn’t even really rapping; he was just sort of muttering along with his own pre-recorded vocals while wandering aimlessly around the court. He was doing the ad-libs, not the actual lines. And he couldn’t find the beat. He couldn’t get anywhere near the beat. It’s really something.
