The 25-year-old Brooklyn-based rapper reveals in a new interview that the money he flaunted a few days prior was not real and he used it for ‘entertainment’ purposes only.
AceShowbiz -Tekashi69 a.k.a. 6ix9ine claimed to be broke as he’s facing new legal trouble. The “GOOBA” rapper, who recently showed off a stack of cash on Instagram, confessed in a new interview that the money was fake.
The emcee, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, made the revelation when speaking to TMZ on Monday, April 18. “I ain’t got it right now. That was prop money,” he admitted. “I’m an entertainer… I have a degree in entertainment.”
A few days prior, 6ix9ine shared an Instagram video in which he showed off his chains, diamond watches, luxurious cars and $1.3 million in cash that he put in the hood of a Lamborghini. “I do not cap. This is really my lifestyle. This is how I really live,” he boasted.
“I really got your net worth in my trunk,” the 25-year-old went on noting. “This is really my lifestyle. I’m the King of New York. I could really take two years off of rap. I could do that. Y’all can’t.”
6ix9ine’s interview with TMZ arrived after it was reported that Streamusic is suing him for $2 million. The streaming service alleged that the Brooklyn-based hip-hop star skipped two Los Angeles concerts in December last year that the streaming app was going to air live.
In the paperwork, Streamusic accused 6ix9ine of breaching contract and fraud. The streaming app also stated that it gave the rapper $150,000 for performing and creating a “promotional video” of the shows on both his main Instagram page and his Story, neither of which the streaming service said happened. The rapper reportedly ghosted the app after receiving the money.
Responding to the report, 6ix9ine’s lawyer Lance Lazzaro told TMZ, “We have no comment at this time.” The attorney further insisted that his client knew nothing about the matter. “Tekashi has not been served with any legal papers.”
