A few weeks ago, a clip surfaced and was obtained by Page Six, of Tekashi 6ix9ine’s father in a homeless shelter. The two supposedly haven’t spoken since 6ix9ine was in third grade, and his father claims that he’s been in a shelter for two years, and 6ix9ine hasn’t offered any money.
6ix9ine’s father also said that the Brooklyn rapper gives everyone else money freely. Many wondered if 6ix9ine would ever address these claims, and he just has, in a new interview with Akademiks.
6ix9ine says that his father is a “crackhead,” and abandoned him at birth. 6ix9ine added that his father continues to smoke crack in the shelter, but he’s the one getting the negative publicity.
“Everybody knows I was abandoned at birth. Everybody knows that my biological father abandoned me at birth Right now, he’s in a shelter smoking crack. The story of me not giving money to a crackhead who abandoned me at birth is getting more publicity than the positive things. Why? Because it’s a trend to hate me.”
6ix9ine’s father was also at his racketeering trial in 2019, where he asked a judge to not hit him with a hard sentence. 6ix9ine feels that his father just wanted him home so he could give him money.
“So I could be free and give him money? The narrative will always be, let’s make Tekashi 6ix9ine like the worst human being in the world but [they] just look at it the way [they] want to look at it.”
