Back in September after the ever-controversial rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine disappeared from social media, many felt it was due to his sophomore album Tattletales underperforming. 6ix9ine is coming forward to reveal why he took so long of a break from his normal social media living, as well as sharing a different version of himself.
The man who has been famously labeled a “snitch” made his return to social media recently in normal 6ix9ine fashion by antagonizing various rappers and trolling, while also sharing that a new single was on the way. Now, 6ix9ine is giving his fans the answer as to why he’s left them hanging for all these months with new photos of both what he looked like immediately after his prison release, and now.
“SO the real reason I LEFT Instagram and MUSIC for 6 months is because In September I was the biggest I ever got,” the “TROLLZ” rapper wrote. “I weighed 204 pounds and I was kinda going through a lot in life and I was just constantly eating and eating… I told myself to put the music to the side and focus on myself and here I am today 60 pounds lighter at 140.
6ix9ine continued, “ALL THIS TO SAY… IN LIFE everyone needs a break, in the chaos of everything that is going on in your life, tell yourself ‘I control what happens in my life’ do NOT let anyone tell you that things you want it’s not possible, that’s FALSE! YOU WANT IT GO GET IT! OWN THAT S**T!”
Before concluding, the rapper let it be known that “I AM AND FOREVER WILL BE THE KING OF NEW YORK CHECK THE F****G STATS !!!!!!”
The rapper also shared a music video for his latest single, “ZAZA”, where he sports his slimmer figure and new bearded look. The video includes a clip of his latest run-in with rapper Meek Mill featuring an overdub of him saying “It was at this moment that he knew he f****d up,” as he zoomed in on Meek’s face.
Meek Mill’s legal team has since issued a cease and desist letter to 6ix9ine’s label stating for them to “immediately remove the video from YouTube, other streaming sites, and all other public platforms, without further comment or disparagement toward our client.” The Philly rapper also insists that 6ix9ine’s account of the events were not as they occurred. “We did not run into each other I was getting in my car he just popped out,” Meek said.
