Tekashi 6ix9ine has posted shocking weight loss photos, today revealing he ballooned up to 204 pounds at the “biggest” he ever got. The rainbow rapper, real name Daniel Hernandez, made his Wednesday Instagram update a before-and-after deal, sharing his weight-loss journey and revealing he’s lost a staggering 60 pounds. 6ix9ine, last year making headlines for being hospitalized after taking diet pills, opened with much heavier photos and videos to reveal his high weight, also explaining his weight loss as being behind his social media and music silences. Check it out below.
Scroll for the shocking photos. Tekashi, who spent 2020 wandering around Chicago’s South Side alleys and wolfing down fried chicken, was mega proud of his achievement today, posting shirtless and bravely to showcase his heavier frame, then driving fans to swipe right to see the transformation.
Opening with an indoor shot, the “GOOBA” rapper wore only black pants as he displayed a slight gut, with paparazzi-taken street shots also highlighting his heavier period. Videos were also shared, with many showing the former gang member massively slimmed-down.
A caption from the “ZaZa” rapper, meanwhile, explained what’s been going on. “Hey guysss………. SO the real reason I LEFT Instagram and MUSIC for 6 months is because in September I was the biggest I ever got .. I weighed 204 pounds and I was kinda going through a lot in life and I was just constantly eating and eating……,” he began.
6ix9ine added that he’d told himself to put music “aside” and place his focus on his health, then revealing his current weight.
Way thinner and showing off his all-chest and sleeve tattoos, Hernandez continued:
“Here I am today 60 pounds lighter at 140 … ALL THIS TO SAY … – IN LIFE everyone needs a break, in the chaos of everything that is going on in your life, tell yourself “ I control what happens in my life” do NOT let anyone tell you that things you want it’s not possible.”
Otober 2020 marked the rapper being hospitalized after taking weight-loss drug Hydroxycut, known for its health side effects. See more photos below!
6ix9ine, who has been beefing with rapper Meek Mill of late, closed with a self-proclaimed “king” status, saying he’s the “KING OF NEW YORK CHECK THE F-CKING STATS!!!”
The brag comes as his September 2020-released “TattleTales” album made headlines last year for poor sales projections, with Tekashi himself seen handing out CDs to random strangers on NYC streets and uploading it to Instagram.
