Tekashi 6ix9ine Explains Snitching On Gang Members: Where Was The Loyalty When You Tried To Kill Me?
Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine is out of jail and is letting everyone know that he’s back. Tekashi 6ix9ine went on Instagram live Friday (May 8), just days after teasing his first appearance since being released from jail.
Back in February 2019, the rainbow-haired rapper made a deal with the feds, pleading guilty to multiple counts of racketeering, conspiracy, firearms offenses and narcotics trafficking charges. While facing 47 years in jail, he took the stand and testified against his fellow gang members. In December of 2019, Tekashi was sentenced to two years in prison, followed by five years of supervised release, 300 hours of community service, and a $35K fine. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the rapper was granted an early release on April 2. He will serve the first four months of supervised released on home incarceration. He will continue to wear GPS monitoring (aka an ankle bracelet) to track his whereabouts.
In the live video, which raked in 2 million viewers, Tekashi 6ix9ine addressed the “King of New York” debate that’s been going on recently thanks to Bronx rapper Lil Tjay declaring himself the new “King of New York”. In response to these claims Tekashi says,
“For the King of New York s**t let’s cut that out, little boy sit down. If you don’t got this watch Im not beefing with anybody from New York if you don’t got this watch. If you don’t got this watch right here, you a little boy to me. I’ll kiss you on your forehead, you a little boy, sit down. King’s home, its over. It’s over.”
Tekashi then addresses the claims that he’s a snitch and a “rat” saying,
“I want to apologize to my fans because you know what? It wasn’t worth it. If there is a street code and there’s something called “no loyalty” and snitching and all that I get it. But where was the loyalty when you was sleeping with my baby mother [Sara Molina]? Where was the loyalty when you was caught on the wiretap trying to kill me? Where was the loyalty when you tried to kidnap my mother? Where was the loyalty when you was stealing millions of dollars from me? Where was that? So who broke it first? I get it don’t fight fire with fire, I’m sorry but what did I do wrong? Be loyal to n***as that was f****ng my baby moms? Be loyal to n***as that kidnapped me? Beat the s**t out of me on video and everything? I’m supposed to be loyal to that? You know what it is, ya don’t want to accept the fact that those is all true facts. Ya understand why I snitched, ya don’t wanna understand. Ya don’t wanna understand that d*mn this kid, he moved their families out of poverty. He paid for schools for all of the members whatever. But he snitched on them why? Were they loyal to me? When I met son he was sleeping on a rug.”
6ix9ine continued to state his case on why he snitched.
“Of course the go-to is he’s a snitch. I can’t blame ya. I’m sorry to my fans because they don’t deserve, my family, my mother, my family don’t deserve that. And I’m sorry but ya not gonna break me down like I did something wrong. I snitched, I ratted, but who was I supposed to be loyal to? If you can’t be loyal to me out here in the free world, and you f****ng my baby mom while I’m out on tour making money for all of us, you back at home sleeping with my baby mom, then I get kidnapped and you try to kill me. If you can’t be loyal to me out here in the free world what makes you think if I would’ve held it down you wouldn’t violate me in the prison, stab me up, poke me in my neck. I’m not gonna lose my life over no hater.”
At the end of the live video, he wanted all of his fans to watch the music video for his new single “Gooba”.
