It’s no secret that XXXTentacion has been the subject of A LOT of controversy. Details have merged regarding his alleged abuse of a pregnant woman. He’s been charged with aggravated battery, domestic battery by strangulation, witness tampering, just to start. If convicted he will face a lengthy prison sentence, but that’s never stopped any other musician from still having a successful career.
It’s a risky move for Cyrus to include the controversial Florida rapper, who was recently charged with allegations of domestic abuse. Earlier this month, Pitchfork released a scathing 142-page transcript of the reported victim’s testimony, ramping up the public uproar against the rapper even further.
So one would think it would be career suicide to team up with XXX right now. Even more of a mistake for a woman, a young woman to team up with the controversial artist. Alas, this didn’t stop Noah Cyrus from dropping her song “Again” this week. People were outraged that Cyrus put out a song with someone accused of horrific violence against his ex girlfriend and then threatened and mocked people who were critical of this violence. Cyrus is still a baby in her career path. She’s still a shadow of her sister’s career and if she wanted controversy she got it, but what kind of team thought this was a good idea?
