Tekashi 6ix9ine is going OFF on the music industry claiming the powers behind the scenes are “cheating’ him out of album sales by making it very hard to find his music.
Tekashi 69 just SLAMMED the streaming services and digital music platforms like Apple Music and Spotify, saying his album ‘Tattle Tales’ isn’t being featured like other new music on the main page of the sites.
The rainbow rapper posted a video on Instagram, not only explaining the issues he has with the industry — but proves it — by showing several cell phones showing his album is nowhere to be found.

“I woke up in a bad mood,” the ‘Punani’ rapper begins.
He contiuned, “I’m supposed to be in a good mood, my album just dropped yesterday, I’m looking at all these DSP’s — DSP’s are like Apple Music and Spotify. Yo, they are completely shutting us out like if we didn’t drop an album, and I thought I was buggin’ right.”
At that point, he shows the home page of Apple Music and says, “This is the main page, and shout out to these artists it really has nothing to do with y’all, this is the new music.”
On the page, you can clearly see that Tekashi’s album is not promoted on the page.
Take A Look!
In the video, he then shows the phone of one of his car passengers who is on another platform and says, “So they are acting like we didn’t drop an album.”
Again, it clearly shows no promotion of Tekashi’s album on the page.
“All I am saying it you already took radio away from us, if y’all going to cheat us just give us a fair fight,” he added.
Tekashi shared the explanation on IG, and captioned the video, “GIVE US A FAIR FIGHT IM ABOUT TO CRY IN THE CAR FOREAL.”
At this point, it’s unclear if Tekashi knows the sales won’t be what he predicted or is just upset he isn’t being given a fair shot like other artists.
Not everyone agrees, check out below!
“Spotify and Apple don’t support snitching ??real ones??? come to PR we take care of rats right here we are the most pest control industry in tha streets ????????,” one fan said angrily.
“Stop crying! If it’s good, it’ll be there. If not, it won’t. Simple. Other artists doing it better right now. Work harder and stop crying,” another added.
One fan even put it like this, “You boast about your album like it’s gonna go number one, disrespect other artists coming up beside you on the charts, and when you don’t get the numbers you expected you wanna cry? Trolling only gonna get you so far.”
So, will he be #1…we will have to wait and see!
