Tekashi 6ix9ine was once one of the most popular acts in the rap scene. The artist was notorious for his extravagant lifestyle, from his pricey jewelry collection to his amazing car collection, he had it all. Now, it appears Tekashi is struggling make ends meet.
AllHipHop reports that the Brooklyn rapper’s deal with TenThousand Projects expired last month. Additionally, Tekashi has not released any music since his home confinement in 2020. It’s understood that he still has a publishing deal, but his royalty account remains unrecouped due to the huge advances he received. This means Tekashi is not receiving monetary benefits from the agreement.
Tekashi made a shocking confession in a sworn declaration to Judge John P. Cronan. The rapper is in the midst of a courtroom battle wherein, Judge Cronan is trying to determine the amount of damages 69 may have to pay for his involvement in the robbery of two people on April 3rd, 2018.
“Right now, I am struggling to make ends meet. I do not know if I will ever command the kind of advances I was paid before my arrest, and my career stalled,” 69 revealed in documents obtained by the outlet.
The deadly Covid-19 pandemic ruined his touring career which generated a significant amount of income for the rapper. His last record did not sell as much as he would have liked, obviously. All the hype of him being a snitch did not pay off.
To make matters worse, Tekashi 6ix9ine said he has no concerts scheduled for 2022. Tekashi further said, the income that he does receive supports himself, his two infant children, and their mother, in addition to his mom and his brother.
Seketha Wonzer and Kevin Dozier claim the rap star traumatized them and ruined their lives after members of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods robbed the couple in a case of mistaken identity. Meanwhile, stay tuned to Thirsty for future updates.
