Tekashi 6ix9ine has been one of the biggest stars in hip-hop since 2018, as things went up after the success of his 2018 “GUMMO” single. His 2018 racketeering case got him two years in December 2019, but got credit for time served, and was off house arrest by last August. 6ix9ine was initially facing 49 years.
6ix9ine has been winning since his release, as he’s had hits such as “GOOBA” and the chart-topping “TROLLZ” single feat. Nicki Minaj. His sophomore album, “Tattle Tales,” also hit number four on the Billboard 200 chart. This year, his “ZAZA” single also made noise. Now, his father is calling for help, after the two haven’t seen each other since 6ix9ine was in third grade.
According to Page Six, a video leaked of 6ix9ine’s father, in a homeless shelter. He revealed that he’s been in this shelter for two years, and hasn’t been offered any help by the Brooklyn rapper.
“Because I don’t have an apartment, he doesn’t know that I’m in the shelter. Now he’s going to know I’ve been here for, what, two years already? You think he’d come hook me up with something. He’s been giving money to other people. … He gives money to everybody. ‘Here, here, here.’”
6ix9ine also explained before that he hadn’t even met his father until he was 9-years-old. His mother supposedly kicked his father out of their home, after he was caught using heroin. At this point, it’ll be interesting to see if 6ix9ine decides to help his father.
