That’s right, Tekashi 69 is going public about his growing frustration with the music establishment ignoring th massive success of his new single, ‘Gooba.’
So, the rainbow rapper posted a picture of the ‘Gooba’ Youtube numbers vs. Drake’s ‘Toosie Slide’ and his point is clear — mine is bigger!
“DONT LET THEM CHEAT US OUT THE NUMBER 1 LOOK AT THE NUMBERS ! WE BEATING EVERYONE AND THEY MOTHER ON EVERYTHING ! They hate to see this…” Tekashi posted on Instagram next to the picture.
In the photo, you can see that the video for ‘Toosie Slide’ has 84 Illion views and was uploaded a month ago. But, Gooba is only a few days old and already has amassed 116 MILLION views!
Smartly, Tekashi specifically makes a point to say he likes Drake and this isn’t a shot at him directly — he just wants to make sure he gets credit for the success.
One of the major accolades Tekashi is hell bend on receiving is the #1 spot on the Billboard music charts.
Following the Drake post, Tekashi posted a picture of the Billboard logo with this ominous message:
“We’re watching this very closely. The world is watching very closely, we love you and always supported the charting. On every platform, we are dominating by a LANDSLIDE. The numbers are there and to be looked at. WITH NO RADIO WE ARE DOMINATING THE STREAMS.”
He continued, “I will hate to believe that people pay for their spins on the radio and making manipulating bundles to manipulate the chart. Again it’s still early Im just making it clear that the world is watching.”
As we reported, this week’s #1 spot went to Doja Cat and Nicki Minaj who collaborated on a remix of ‘Say So.’
Tekashi’s fans are fully behind the rapper and are posting messages in support of him winning the top spot.
“Number 1!!! 6ix9ine Baby!!!❤️” one person wrote.
As we reported, if it was up to the rap establishment, Tekashi wouldn’t be allowed to submit anything at all. Snoop Dogg and Meek Mill have both publically blasted Tekashi asking fans not to support a snitch.
“They gotta stop pushing this ? all these media outlets making snitching cool I’m old school f*** 69 and everybody pushing his line right now all New York. Gz,” Snoop wrote on IG.
He added, “Feel me on this and if u don’t f*** u2. ?? @meekmill If u allow sucka shit then u a sucka. Love u cuz stay sucka free.”
Your move, Billboard!
