Kid Ink Discusses the Politics of Rap & Tekashi 6ix9ine Radio Bannings

Kid Ink knows a thing or two about the rap game, especially when it comes to the politics regarding trashing a city and then expecting to get airplay on the radio.

The “Show Me” rapper was at LAX when he was asked by photographer Charlie Cotton about L.A. station Power 106 banning Tekashi69’s new song, “FEFE.”

Power inflicted the punishment on Tekashi after one of his rants where he talks about coming into a city and taking over the streets. He specifically offended The Game and YG, who did not take kindly to the boisterous attitude of the rainbow-haired rapper.

Ink says he has mixed emotions over the situation, but says 69 took a stance that a lot of people in the city took very personally. He explained that in his neighborhood, claiming you’re going to “pull up” on someone is a direct threat, and shouldn’t just be used to front on the Gram.

He said you diss a city and go crazy and then expect to get airplay, adding that he doesn’t support negativity or have bad wishes against anybody.

Ink also says some DJ’s in Los Angeles, like the LA Leakers, have figured out a loophole to the Tekashi banning … you gotta hear it.
