Tekashi 6ix9ine claims to have arrived in the Crenshaw area of Los Angeles to ‘pay respect’ to Nipsey Hussle, but many are calling him out for a video showing him jumping in and out of his car in a few minutes — calling the stunt ‘disrespectful.’
Tekashi 69 shared a video of himself in front of a Nipsey Hussle mural which was painted on the side of a business near where the rapper was killed.
In the clip, the rainbow rapper is standing in front and playing Nipsey’s music, and at one point he even takes a knee in front of the painting.
But, many are very upset with the stunt, because the video is not exactly what it seems.
“REST IN PEACE NISPEY ! (sic) I KNOW YOU LOOKING DOWN ON ME IM OUT HERE IN THE HOOD PAYING MY RESPECT,” the controversial rapper captioned the video.
In the video, he appears to be spending some time in Nipsey’s neighborhood, and it’s obviously pointing to the fact that he is not afraid to stroll on the L.A. streets near where several street gangs are prominent.
But, another video was captioned by a person sitting in the parking lot — which appears to show Tekahsi jump in and out of his car in under 120 seconds. In other words, it appears to be a stunt and all for show.
Well, this is not sitting well with many Nipsey fans and other L.A. residents.
Interestingly, Tekashi even pointed out the reason he did not make the trip to Nipsey’s store which was right down the street —
“P.S THE STORE WAS CLOSED BUT THEY PAINTED THIS ON THE SAME BLOCK.”
Several fans are upset at the connection between Tekashi’s snitching and the reports that Nipsey was arguing with his alleged killer about the same subject just minutes before he died.
“Total disrespect he died because he told a snitch get from round him ?” one person wrote. Adding, “Kinda disrespectful if you ask me, especially because nip was shot by a snitch.”
“Nipsey would b fuming ?,” another said.
Many viewers of the video claim they believe Tekahsi is trolling several rappers who have passed away, after taking aim at Pop Smoke by playing in a playground last week in New York. Fans believe the rainbow rapper was mocking his lyrics in ‘Gangstas.’
Others believe the Nipsey Hussle stunt was blatant disrespect.
As we reported, Tekashi arrived in L.A. earlier this week and has been hitting some of the city hotspots including Nobu in Malibu, and the Santa Monica Pier. One thing is clear, he is appearing to not be worried about any gang retaliation.
But, many are accusing him of visiting Nipsey’s neighborhood early in the morning, when many people were not out in the streets. In other words, during the day he may not be so welcome.
