AceShowbiz – Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine caused a stir on Instagram Live on Friday (May 08) as he made his first official public appearance since scoring an early release from prison.
The “FEFE” star was allowed to head home in April due to coronavirus concerns after serving time for gang-related charges of racketeering, firearms offences, and drug trafficking in New York.
He is currently spending the remainder of his two-year sentence under house arrest, and as he turned 24 on Friday (May 08), he dropped his first post-prison material with the self-filmed video for “Gooba”.
Tekashi promoted the track by connecting with fans on a livestream hours later, and took the opportunity to share his side of the story as he explained why he agreed to cooperate with FBI officials and testify against the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods – of which he was said to be a member.
During the chat, he slammed his former manager Kifano “Shotti” Jordan for plotting with gang associates to have him killed, and insisted he was never really interested in breaking the law – he was only trying to find a way to lift his family out of poverty.
“Listen, I’m a Mexican, rainbow-haired kid and I rap. I’m not about that gang s**t, but I know how to get us out,” he explained.
Tekashi went on to own his status as a government informant as he addressed his haters, saying, “Y’all really didn’t have a reason to dislike me (before). But now, y’all got a reason, so the go-to is, ‘He snitched.’ My fans, my family don’t deserve that and I’m sorry. Listen, I snitched (and) I ratted, but who was I supposed to be loyal to (sic)?”
He then publicly thanked his lawyer, Lance Lazzaro, and the judge who granted him the early release, only to argue his innocence, declaring, “I didn’t do anything wrong.”
And it didn’t take long for Tekashi to fire up his new feud with Meek Mill, who had called for the Brooklyn native to formally apologize for becoming an informant.
“For a rat to come home and do more numbers than you, I would be mad too,” Tekashi taunted. “If a rat came home the way I came home and did more numbers than me, I would be mad. You have every reason to be mad.”
