Docuseries Highlights On How Supervillains Such As 6ix9ine Are Being Allowed To Rise Up
“We live in an attention economy. A digital culture that can empower people with no talent or morals to become famous,” Gill said to Complex regarding the type of character that 6ix9ine is in the world.
“This series is bigger than 6ix9ine. It’s a cautionary tale about manufactured celebrity and how when our society allows Supervillains to rise, the collateral damage can be massive. In the era of Trump and the Jan. 6 insurrection, understanding and analyzing these stories is extremely important.”
6ix9ine’s Manager Called Out Hulu And Showtime For Unauthorized Docuseries
Hulu put out their “69: The Saga of Danny Hernandez” documentary back in November. Ahead of this 6ix9ine‘s manager, Murda Murphy, took to social media to say that this was unauthorized as well as the docuseries by Showtime.
“The Hulu & Showtime @6ix9ine projects!! Are both unauthorized!! Nothing to do with us!! Zero!! The people in these talking are cap! Are not involved with us in anyway!! Don’t support this trash!! When @6ix9ine does something you’ll be the first to know!”
6ix9ine’s ‘Tattle Tales’ Album Was A Top Five-Charting Project
6ix9ine‘s “Tattle Tales” album was released back on September 4 and it actually did very well. It sold 53,000 units in its first week and that was good enough to debut at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 chart.
Despite this, the Brooklyn rapper continued to troll social media as he posted videos of himself passing out CDs of Tattle Tales. Since then though, he has decided to remain low key online except when it comes time to diss Lil Durk about King Von or his music.
