Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine is being sued for millions of dollars after allegedly bailing on several concerts in Hollywood, California.
According to legal documents, obtained by The Blast, a company called Streammusic claims it made a deal with the rainbow rapper to perform several concerts in Los Angeles inside a private venue. In the filing, the company says they reached an agreement in August of 2021 which included a handsome payment of $150,000 upfront to sign the deal.
Tekashi 69 allegedly agreed to “perform two musical concerts” and Streammusic was granted the rights to stream a live audiovisual broadcast of the performances. Plus, they say the ‘Gummo’ rapper was to promote the shows on his massive Instagram page, including “promotional videos” on his feed and IG stories.

In December, the company says Tekashi failed to promote the shows on his IG page in the weeks before the concert. After postponing the show, SM says Tekashi ghosted them and pocketed the $150,000.
During the time period, Streammusic says they “allocated significant financial and human resources in connection with preparing for and marketing the performances that Defendant agreed to perform, including hours of marketing meetings, hours of curating video assets, hours of development embedding videos into Plaintiff’s mobile application, hours of curating other assets and managerial tasks, and arrangements for extra security measures.”

Unfortunately, the concerts never came to fruition and the company says, “the false promises and inducements and the Plaintiff’s justifiable reliance on knowingly false statements made by Defendants caused Plaintiff significant financial and reputational damage, including pecuniary damages, lost business profits, destruction of goodwill, cost of suit, lawful interest, and attorney’s fees, not only in the short term but also in the foreseeable future.”
Now, Tekashi is being sued for fraud and the company is asking for over $2 million in damages. They are asking for “compensatory damages no less than $1 million and for exemplary or punitive damages of no less than $1 million.”
