It seems as if Tekashi 6ix9ine wants to prove to the world that he’s either bulletproof or unwise. Feeling footloose and fancy free now that his house arrest has been lifted, he’s been spotted recklessly around New York. Now, 6ix9ine is in L.A. and giving away his location – along with stacks of money in the streets.
Previously, the Internet captured the “TROLLZ” rapper filming a new music video on his first full day off of house arrest, complete with camera crew. While the rapper has been continuously releasing music while under lock and key, one can assume that with his release we’re sure to get a deluge of new music. Despite the fact that his “TROLLZ” duet with Nicki Minaj premiered to big numbers initially, the decline in the numbers from week to week afterwards was enough to trigger alarm in some quarters.
Kicking the trolling up a notch during a recent live stream, Tekashi 6ix9ine took to addressing why people seemed to continuously question his motives for having security around him constantly. Given his cause of conviction, it’s widely assumed known that his safety may be in danger, according to previous statements by his attorneys. Still, Tekashi had plenty to say.
“A lot of people wanna say, why are you always around a whole bunch of security?” said 6ix9ine during his stream. “Why is your favorite rapper [gone] right now with [holes] in his face? F— is you talking about?” Many took 6ix9ines comments as a jab to rappers like Nipsey Hussle, XXXtentacion, and Pop Smoke.
Tekashi’s also left the island of NYC and took his crew over to the Westfield Garden State Plaza Mall in Paramus, New Jersey. Of course, the rapper had his considerable security team with him, keeping him safe – though it seemed he only needed to be kept safe from a few screaming fans.
However, as the rapper walked around things started to get more hectic and chaotic, with more and more people eventually following the rapper around the mall. People were jostling for photos and trying to get a glimmer of the “TROLLZ” rapper until the fun and games seemed to turn serious. Despite seemingly fearing for his safety in the mall, Tekashi posted a video trolling people who thinks that he’s afraid for his safety.
In the clip, he could be seen running from someone through the streets, seemingly indicating that he was running in fear. Once the party giving chase catches up to him, they hand him a $1 that he supposedly “dropped.” We may never know if 6ix9ine fears for his life or if all of this has been a ploy to sell records.
The streak continues with the rapper being in L.A. in a high priced home, being recorded while sitting in an infinity pool with a view of the Los Angeles skyline. On camera, the rapper seems unafraid, despite the “threats” he later shares himself in the clip.
“I remember they said I couldn’t come out here. They said I couldn’t come out here. These people love me,” Tekashi tells the cameraperson before laughing. While Tekashi didn’t exactly tag his location, he did have the cameraperson pan around to get a view of the whole house where seemed to be relaxing.
Though he’s put on a brave face throughout all of his travels and public appearances, 6ix9ine showed that he’s not totally aloof of what’s going on with him, safety-wise at least.
“Oh, and by the way, if you are trying to pause the video and screenshot, by the time I uploaded this, I’m already gone!” he says on the video, acknowledging that he at least knows his safety may be in danger after all of his trolling and snitching.
