Rapper 6ix9ine remains a controversial figure for quite a long time on social media, as he loves to stir the pot and get into everyone’s face. He has personal beef with quite a few rappers as of late.
The rapper had disappeared from social media for quite some time after getting out of prison. He also hadn’t released a single album in over six months at that point. Now in a long post on Instagram, the rapper revealed the reason for him being absent on social media.
It was not for the reasons fans thought, which was due to his sophomore album TattleTales failing to reach the #1 spot on the Billboard 200. He revealed the reason to be him gaining weight and that the rapper needed a break.
“Hey guysss………. SO the real reason I LEFT Instagram and MUSIC for 6 months is because in September I was the biggest I ever got,” he captioned the post. “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.
“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 SHIT ! I AM AND FOREVER WILL BE THE KING OF NEW YORK CHECK THE FUCKING STATS !!!!!!”
The rapper also had been calling himself the ”King Of New York” moniker for quite some time now. Before he left the New York Clinton Correctional Facility, the rapper shared an Instagram post that featured a five-minute clip of the 1990 Christopher Walken film King of New York, emphasizing his point.
Rapper BRS Kash took a shot at Tekashi and asked “The King Of New York tho?” to which 6ix9ine shut him down by saying “You are a one hit wonder, please take a seat.”
We will have to see what is next in store for Tekashi 6ix9ine.
