He’s back! Nearly 18 months since his 2018 arrest, Tekashi 6ix9ine finally returned to the public eye on Friday (May 8) with a highly-anticipated Instagram Live session, which shattered the IG Live record by topping more than two-million viewers at its peak.
The usually-rowdy Brooklyn native has been radio silent, laying low for the most part since his April 2 release from prison, which came four months prior to the original date he’d be set free. Tekashi’s legal team secured him the right to serve the rest of his sentence on house arrest since he suffers from asthma and the coronavirus outbreak continues to run rampant through the prison system.
Tekashi is wasting no time in resuming his rap career, as he debuted his pugnacious “GOOBA” single on Friday (May 8), which also happens to be his 24th birthday. 6ix9ine’s on the hook for two albums (one in English and one in Spanish) to 10K Projects after re-upping with the label for a reported $10 million back in October while still behind bars.
Nobody understands the art of promotion quite like 6ix9ine, as the Tekashi experience is already back at full tilt. Between his new beef with Meek Mill, defending his snitching ways, and still being the self-proclaimed king of New York, here are the best moments from the rainbow hair-colored rhymer’s boisterous 15-minute IG Live.
