6ix9ine may be a hip-hop newcomer, but the controversial upstart is already teasing his retirement. Taking to Instagram on Sunday (April 8), Tekashi confirmed his exit plans.
“Waiting for someone to rob me,” he wrote. “Ima quit rapping this year. I accomplished everything i dreamed of in 5 months.”
Shortly before posting this, 6ix9ine celebrated his achievements. “Two platinum records, three gold records, five months of me making my debut in the industry,” he said. “But yet people be like, ‘Nobody knows you.’ What the fuck is you talking about?
The Recording Industry Association of America has different figures. “Gummo” earned a platinum certification last month, while “Kooda” earned a gold certification in February, according to the RIAA. No other 69 songs appear on the website’s database.
Controversy follows 6ix9ine. In February, a judge ordered him to complete his GED or face jail time as part of a plea deal. The rapper, who pled guilty to use of a child in a sexual performance, will find out his fate tomorrow (April 10).
“I got court tomorrow,” he said in another recent Instagram video. “I want everybody to put me in their prayers. Hopefully we come out on top. GED is done, everything is done. But you never know what the judge is gonna say.”
6ix9ine is also in a series of rap feuds. The Game, Trippie Redd, and Bhad Bhabie are among his most vocal detractors. The latter rapper recently spoke with Rap-Up about her feud with Tekashi. “Nobody likes this artist at all,” she said. “Nobody likes him.”
