According to Hot New Hip Hop, Tekashi 6ix9ine recently went to the memorial site of the slain rapper, Nipsey Hussle, and two rappers, in particular, weren’t happy about it. The outlet says Tekashi 6ix9ine recently went to Los Angeles after staying in New York City.
As hip-hop fans know, Tekashi 6ix9ine was sent to stay at home on house arrest following his release from prison. Even though there are many rappers and entertainers itching to see the entertainer dead, Tekashi 6ix9ine isn’t too bothered by it.
Tekashi 6ix9ine became a scourge on the hip-hop and black community after he gave up information to the federal government in exchange for a much lighter sentence. His actions made him easily one of the most hated figures in the industry – but also one of the most beloved.
Previously, 6ix9ine has claimed that he would pay a private security team to follow him around everywhere he goes that way no one can sneak up behind him and take him out unsuspectingly.
Hip-hop figures typically believe such a move isn’t honorable, but Tekashi 6ix9ine thinks it’s essential. In fact, it could’ve saved XXXTEntacion’s life, Hernandez has argued.
Regardless of how one feels about Tekashi 6ix9ine’s very precarious situation, many other rappers have been honest about their feelings toward the performing artist. For instance, the LA rapper, The Game, has put Tekashi on blast a few times.
This week, Tekashi posted a picture of himself posing with Nipsey Hussle’s gravesite. The Game wrote in response that it was “disrespectful” and also included a rat emoji. TDE’s Reason made similar remarks.
Reason claimed Tekashi 6ix9ine was out there for “60 seconds” before he was escorted by the police back to his car. He added, “troll all you want but leave our legend out of it bro.” As hip-hop fans already know, Nipsey Hussle was shot to death outside of his clothing store in Los Angeles in March 2018.
At the time, Nipsey was relatively unheard of in the mainstream culture, however, he quickly became an icon following his death for the work he was doing in the neighborhood in which he grew up.
