“With Tekashi it’s a little different because he comes from a generation that really didn’t have no moral ethic,” said Akon. “I can’t really speak on why he would do that, but most likely it’s for the obvious reasons. But everyone goes through something in their lives that propels them to do things that they feel is in the best interest of themselves. And I think, you really can’t blame him, if what he’s saying is the truth.”
The Internet really has no chill – at all. A new savage meme has gone viral poking fun at federal informant hip-hop artist Tekashi 6ix9ine possibly knowing the shooter from last Sunday’s jaw-dropping “Power” mid-season finale. Look and comment below!

New York rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine is expected to pay stacks on security when he gets released from prison. The hip-hop star is reportedly planning to keep bodyguards around him on an hourly basis.
An attempt at continuing his music career is risky, due to potential threats on his life after testifying against gang members, and TMZ’s sources suggest the rapper will employ around-the-clock security to protect himself. Complex spoke with several security companies about 6ix9ine’s case, and they all said 24/7 surveillance for a rapper like him is possible, but this particular situation is “unprecedented,” expensive, and risky.

Who could have known that after being arrested by the feds, facing life in prison for federal racketeering and weapons charges, and snitching on his entire crew, Tekashi 6ix9ine would be getting a docuseries on Showtime?
On October 17th, Showtime announced that they would be collaborating with Rolling Stone to produce the three-part docuseries. The series would be based on journalist Stephen Witt’s in depth 2019 Rolling Stone article “Tekashi 6ix9ine: The Rise and Fall of a Hip Hop Supervillain”.
According to a press release, the docuseries “will trace how a New York City deli clerk named Daniel Hernandez exploded into Tekashi 6ix9ine, the tattooed face of Gen Z and hip hop’s prince of trolls”
Vinnie Malhotra, Executive Vice President of Non-Fiction programming at Showtime, stated that “Beyond becoming one of the most notorious hip hop artists of this generation, his story speaks volumes of the impact of social media and manufactured celebrity in our society. We’re thrilled to be partnering with such heavy hitters in the world of music and documentary to bring SuperVillain to life.”
The docuseries will be produced by Rolling Stone, Lightbox and Imagine Documentaries. Imagine co-founder Brian Grazer it set to serve as an executive producer.
News of the New York rapper’s docuseries comes about a week after 6ix9ine reportedly received a two-album record deal worth $10 million from Elliot Grange ran label, 10k Projects.
6ix9ine is currently awaiting sentencing for federal racketeering and weapons charges after accepting a plea deal in February 2019. About a month ago, 6ix9ine was the butt of internet jokes and was labeled a snitch after he testified against the Nine Trey Bloods gang in exchange for a shorter jail sentence.

Remember, it was Mel Murda who was caught on tape saying he was ready to “super violate” Tekashi after the Brooklyn rapper’s relationship with the crew deteriorated.
“You are literally telling your followers to go out and get Hernandez,” said Judge Paul Engelmayer, per Page Six, before handing Jones his sentence on Thursday morning (Oct. 17).
In a twist, the person on the other end of the line when Mel Murda made his threat was Jim Jones, who became embroiled in a social media frenzy when Tekashi said the “retired” Harlem rapper was a Nine Trey Blood while on the stand.
Back in April, Mel Murder pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy to commit racketeering and conspiracy to distribute narcotics after considering all the evidence against him.
“I’ve been trying to better my way of thinking I am only human,” Mel, who was facing up to 14 years, reportedly told the court. “I can’t go back and change what happened.”
As for Tekashi 6ix9ine, he’ll be facing his sentence on December 18.
Tekashi 6nitch9ine‘s personal brand may be toxic when it comes to a future in the rap game, but people like 50 Cent still feel he’s capable of being ratings gold as now Rolling Stone and Showtime have teamed up to release a docuseries revolving around the rise and fall of the rainbow haired “gangsta” rapper.
According to Page Six Showtime and Rolling Stone are set to produce a three-part docuseries dubbed “Supervillain” which will be based on Stephen Witt’s Rolling Stone feature “The Rise and Fall of A Hip-Hop Supervillain.” Truth be told Tekashi’s personal story is all kinds of interesting as he went from a struggle rapper touring overseas looking for a break to becoming one of the hottest rappers in the game only to get kidnapped, beaten and threatened by the very people who helped him get the street cred he needed to pop all his sh*t.
In-between all of that he trolled other rappers to the heated point that his life was in danger in places like Los Angeles and Chicago, got into drama with fellow Brooklyn rapper Casanova, and allegedly hooked up with a rival rapper’s girlfriend. It wasn’t until the police arrested him and informed him that his manager wasn’t just allegedly planning on killing him, but was also hooking up with his baby mama that Tekashi decided to turn states evidence and not only gave up the farm, but other ranches he knew of.
Like him or not, he’s got a pretty compelling story.
No word on when “Supervillain” will debut but best believe people will be tuning in. Whether or not Tekashi is one of them remains to be seen when he’s sentenced next month in federal court.
New York rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine‘s life story is slated to go TV. New reports claim the jailed hip-hop artist’s rise and fall will be analyzed in a new Showtime series called “SuperVillain.”
According to reports, the three-part series will chronicle Tek’s rise from a New York City deli employee to rap star and convicted criminal.
SuperVillain is based on Stephen Witt’s extensive Rolling Stone feature, “Tekashi 6ix9ine: The Rise and Fall of a Hip-Hop Supervillain.” “Tekashi 6ix9ine’s story fits into Rolling Stone’s history of epic narratives about the most important and controversial artists of our times,” said Gus Wenner, President and COO of Rolling Stone. “We are thrilled to work with Showtime, Imagine and Lightbox on the definitive docuseries of Tekashi’s meteoric rise and spectacular fall.” (Rolling Stone)
Showtime execs have confirmed the huge power move and dished on what viewers should expect.
“The bizarre and complicated rise of Tekashi 6six9ine is a story of our times,” said Vinnie Malhotra, EVP, Nonfiction Programming, Showtime Networks. “Beyond becoming one of the most notorious hip hop artists of this generation, his story speaks volumes of the impact of social media and manufactured celebrity in our society. We’re excited to be partnering with such heavy hitters in the world of music and documentary to bring Supervillain to life.” (Deadline)
According to reports, Fif’s upcoming docuseries will also focus on his own life story.
The story of Tekashi 6ix9ine is a bizarre one: the Brooklyn rapper allegedly affiliated himself with a gang for street credibility, and then found himself extorted and kidnapped by them, is now in prison for his involvement with their crimes, and cooperated with police to convict them. Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson thinks it will make for great TV, and so will the legal dramas of other celebrities, including himself: the rapper-actor-entrepreneur has inked a deal for a scripted docuseries on such subjects called “A Moment in Time” that will be produced by him through his production company G-Unit Film & Television, a rep confirms to Variety — adding that there will be episodes on “many more” celebrities as well. The news was first reported by TMZ. (Variety)

New York rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine continues to see more former comrades land serious time behind bars. New reports claim ex-Tek affiliate Jamel “Mel Murda” Jones is going to do more than 10 years in prison.
A reputed Bloods leader who was caught on tape saying he wanted to “super violate” Tekashi 6ix9ine was sentenced to more than 11 years behind bars Thursday — as the judge compared the rainbow-haired rapper to the Archbishop of Canterbury assassinated in 1170. “You are literally telling your followers to go out and get Hernandez,” Judge Paul Engelmayer told Jamel “Mel Murda” Jones before sentencing him to 11 years and four months in prison for his involvement with the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods. (Page Six)
Murda reportedly could have received a 14-year punishment.
In legal documents, obtained by The Blast, Jamel Jones aka Mel Murda’s case has reached the sentencing point and prosectors sent a letter to the judge asking he be placed in lock-up for at least 135 months. The maximum they are asking for is 168 months. Federal prosecutors point to Tekashi 69’s testimony, about several violent acts, as proof Murda should do some serious hard time. (The Blast)
“Listen, I gotta speak on this. Everybody talking about 6ix9ine and this $10 million deal. First off, that’s some Internet sh*t. Ain’t nobody seen no paperwork. Second of all, whatever these people want to do with their money, whoever they want to invest in, that’s they business. That’s they right. Third, stop blaming him. It’s his fans. It’s his fan base. It’s his fans that make him popular. The popularity brings streams and streams bring revenue. Any businessman would do business with this kid. Y’all keep crossing the streets with the building and the building don’t gotta abide by the code of the streets. So all you n*ggas running around here crying and mad, go step your game up or figure out something – stop crying about business and what business is. It’s just what it is. It’s 2019. Ain’t 1989 anymore. West.”

Earlier today, TMZ reported that Hot 97 plans to ban Tekashi 6ix9ine’s music when he gets out of prison. Ebro addressed the report earlier this morning on the Ebro In The Morning radio show, saying he would never talk to anyone from TMZ. He name-dropped a number of the station’s DJs that played Tekashi 6ix9ine’s music, including Funk Flex, DJ Drewski, and DJ Wallah.
The headline on TMZ read, “Tekashi 6ix9ine, Hot 97 Shunning Music Unless… “According to Ebro, that was a false statement.
“I don’t care what people say ’cause when that Tekashi music come out, guess what I’m doing? I’m playing it everyday,” he says.
“Goofball NY n***as created Tekashi 6ix9ine and supported the streets,’” Ebro said. “When he drops new music imma play that sh*t every day just to sh*t on y’all stupid f**ks.”

Some of 6ix9ine’s fans chimed in on the situation. Ebro responded by calling him a pedestrian who doesn’t know sh*t.
Yea nah. I don’t. Ur a pedestrian u don’t know shit. https://t.co/A462PRgA3E

If the label is not careful were gonna have to revisit covering how his on-line shenanigans was fabricated from the beginning and who financed them..

Prior to his arrest, Tekashi 6ix9ine was the king of trolling online. He often taunted a number of rappers and it worked in his favor. Ebro believes the TMZ story is gearing up to place 6ix9ine right where he left off. It will be interesting to see once he is released.
Last week, 6ix9ine signed a deal worth $10 million with his former label 10K Projects, for an English and Spanish album. The guy who was once facing close to 57 years in prison for his unlawful activity with the Nine Tr3 bloods will allegedly be released before Christmas of this year.
