Tekashi 6ix9ine is facing a lot of ups and downs in his life because of his prior deeds.  For months, fans must have been following Tekashi’s announcement that he is facing a lawsuit. Tekashi’s lawyer has now issued a statement on the rapper’s financial state. His lawyer stated that despite his claim to be filthy rich, Tekashi 6ix9ine is “digging his life out of a hole.”

Tekashi 6ix9ine’s lawyer claimed that, despite flashing millions of dollars to promote his recent video for “GINÉ,” the rapper is still struggling financially. Lawyers for Seketha “Skyy L. Daniels” Wonzer and Kevin Dozier are waiting for a judge to decide how much 6ix9ine should pay them in damages for a daring daylight robbery in Times Square in April of 2018.

During his testimony against high-ranking members of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods in October of 2019, the rapper testified to his role in the robbery. 6ix9ine later apologized to the victims and was given a two-year reduced sentence for collaborating with the authorities.

Seketha Wonzer and Kevin Dozier, on the other hand, sued the rap star for the terrible experience, claiming that it cost them their jobs and caused them mental pain. Because 6ix9ine took too long to respond to the first complaint, the pair was awarded a default judgment. Last month, 6ix9ine tried to reduce the potential settlement by telling the judge — under oath – that he was practically broke and trying to support his family.

Daniel Hernandez, 69’s real name, admitted to receiving millions of dollars in unpaid advances. He also said that the epidemic had an influence on his touring finances and that due to his celebrity, he had trouble arranging dates.

6ix9ine shared a video on Instagram a few days before the track dropped, counting out $1.5 million in cash and flaunting his luxury car collection. Seketha Wonzer and Kevin Dozier’s attorneys learned of the footage and recently informed the judge that 6ix9ine’s actions show he has no remorse for his role in the heist.

“Despite subsequently informing the media that the funds displayed were fictitious, the fact remains that [6ix9ine] brazenly boasted about being rich after having committed serious federal offenses. Indeed, that boast, in and of itself, further evinces 6ix9ine’s total lack of remorse. [6ix9ine,] adding insult to injury, belittles the anguish of his victims by touting his stability and success. And, worse, he did so as part of his entertainment business and is actually financially capitalizing upon it.”

The pair claimed that Tekashi through his rap in Gine tried to threaten them. Simultaneously, and in reply to this claim Robert S. Meloni who was defending Tekashi in this lawsuit passed his statement.

“Run up on a n####, gimme that Where your jewelry at ? Stupid little n####, gimme that/Where your blicky at?/Pull up on em’ make it brrrrrraaaaaattt/B#### you know that when I see you, we gonna make it brrrrrraaaaaatt.”

“While the lyrics may be coarse and generally offensive in polite society, there is no support at all that plaintiffs are the subject of the song ‘GINÉ’s’ lyrics.”

“The use of expensive luxury items or money and rap videos as part of the culture of that music genre, is usually not real, and is used to conceal the actual financial condition of the artist.”

“Mr. Hernandez is attempting to dig his life out of the hole he has admittedly put himself into. In order to succeed in the rap industry, artists have to present a persona that is decadent and offensive.”

The suit is still pending before the court. Let’s see how many sentences will be awarded to Tekashi. For further updates stay tuned to Thirsty.
