Tekashi 6ix 9ine‘s security detail cost is now being questioned by the “GOOBA” rapper’s fans – seemingly, what the 24-year-old asked for by trolling gang members while sampling Chicago’s South Side chicken and fries this week. The rainbow rapper whose completed house arrest has already seen him trolling gang members in L.A., is back to wandering city streets – this time, Chicago.
6ix9ine, real name Daniel Hernandez, is allegedly part of the Nine Trey Gangsters, a violent sect of The Bloods. Check out his video and the response below.
Tekashi is gearing up for his latest album release. “Tattle Tales” drops September 4, with the man behind the beats wasting no time in promoting both his music and his merch via his Instagram. 6ix9ine’s Thursday video showed him walking down a Chicago alley while taunting gang members, then posting with fried chicken and fries takeout from Chicago’s famous Harold’s joint.
“South Side of Chicago,” the rapper said on a gritty sidewalk while showing his meal and talking “pre-saving” the chicken – then telling fans to “pre-save” the album. The footage comes amid videos showing 6ix9ine admitting to “reckless” behavior after he tossed $100 cash bills into city streets and posted his exact location.
Tekashi, also clearly trolling gang members as his alley video saw him holding a vodka bottle and saying: “I think there is killers here, the hitters…try and keep it down,” now has fans probing the heavy security clearly flanking him.
Over 500 likes came in for a comment reading:
“He gotta be paying his security guards 6figures ? because he playing a DANGEROUS game in my city. ? Ain’t Nobody Safe in ChiRaq. NOBODY ion care who you is.”
“It’s all a setup,” a fan replied, continuing: “Guarantee there was police in the corners directing traffic.”
More after the video.
Tekashi, now complete with his “snitch” moniker after testifying against the Bloods in New York, might see the world all over his lyrics and girlfriend Jade’s Instagram, but the rapper isn’t letting the unflattering nickname get to him. 6ix9ine has been pulling dangerous stunts near private jets with his security – he then saw his own team denying he’d been robbed at gunpoint. Eventually, 6ix9ine admitted to his behavior being “reckless.”
Girlfriend Jade, meanwhile, has been making the most of the drama for epic Instagram captions.
Replies to the “six figure” estimate continued – one fan pegged the price tag as “5k a day,” with another writing:
” fr dude talking about no one safe ????.”
Jade, real name Rachel Wattley, has also been factoring her boyfriend’s safety into her IG. A private jet post prior to her Chicago flight came captioned:
“I can only fly private now cause n-ggas wanna kill my man ?
Outfit @baddieville ?.”
6ix9ine was released from a New York prison in April on account of coronavirus and his asthma. He completed the remainder of his sentence under house arrest, then releasing “PUNANI” to celebrate its completion.
