Tekashi 69’s album got leaked over the past weekend, but it also got officially launched yesterday.
On November 27, it was announced that the official launch would also take place even after the album got leaked online over the past weekend.
‘EXCLUSIVE: In a few hours #tekashi69 “DUMMY BOY” album will be released. He has instructed his label to release it on his behalf and tho he is disappointed about his current situation and the leak of the project he wants his fans to enjoy his album that he worked hard on. He also loves and misses his fans. Via @iamakademiks,’ the post by DJ Akademiks reads.
The latest reports claim that TMZ did some digging and they noted that Tekashi might have cut out from the song the fashion retailer Fashion Nova.
We all know that they collaborated with Cardi B and she even launched her own Fashion Nova line a while ago.
The song MAMA is featuring Kanye West and Nicki Minaj.
On the song, Tekashi raps ‘Splish, splash, Apple Bottoms make that ass fat.’
As noted by Genius, the original lyric went ‘Splish, splash, Fashion Nova make that ass fat.’
The change in designer may have had something to do with Nicki Minaj, claim the latest reports.
Hot New Hip Hop notes that ‘TMZ’s sources claim that Tekashi had a deal with Fashion Nova worth six figures. They paid him the full amount up front, and he promised to promote their line in his music.’
The thing is that it seems Tekashi backed out of the deal after he allegedly got paid by Fashion Nova. The rumors have not been confirmed yet by the famous retailer.
