Tekashi 6ix9ine’s Music Will Still Be Played On Hot 97 Despite Testimony
Tekashi 6ix9ine’s alleged snitching tendencies won’t stop his music from getting played on New York City’s Hot 97 radio station. In fact, the station still plays the music he’s already released.
While Tekashi has been under fire and mocked by the Hip-Hop community after testifying against his former fellow Nine Trey Bloods gang members in a federal case recently, he reportedly signed a multi-million dollar record deal, and plans to get back into the music once he’s released from prison. He was initially facing 47 years to life behind bars on narcotics trafficking, conspiracy, racketeering, multiple firearms charges, among other things. But after taking the stand and testifying against his alleged kidnapper, and revealing some of the crimes the gang allegedly participated in, Tekashi, who has been in jail since his arrest last November, could be released as early as the top of 2020.
Reports swirled that thanks to his testimony, Hot 97 refused to play his music. But the hosts of the station’s Ebro in the Morning (Ebro, Peter Rosenberg and Laura Stylez) said that Hot 97 has no plans to stop playing his music, and added that he still gets radio play now.
“The DJs here been playing that ish always. Flex, Drewski, what’s the other dude’s name with the glasses? Wallah!”
Laura Stylez agreed and said,
“There’s a couple people here who absolutely play his music.”
Rosenberg then said,
“Let’s just be honest. If he drops and it’s fire, and everybody’s talking about it in New York, even if we think it’s whack that people are still supporting, it’s gonna get played.”
Ebro also said,
“I don’t care what people say cause when that Tekashi music comes out, guess what I’m doing? I’m playing it every day! That’s what y’all get! And I keep telling y’all that. I’m telling everybody to their face. New York City, that’s what you get. That’s how corny the streets are right now. That’s what you get. You made this happen, you’re cornballs.”
Check it out at the 3:54 mark.
