Tekashi 6ix9ine’s Management Denies Allegations
"We don't play with pedophile shit"
Earlier today, MASS APPEAL broke the news that rapper Trippie Redd had cut ties with Teka$hi 6ix9ine amidst allegations that he had relations with an underage girl. Those allegations seemed to be strengthened by comments Teka$hi made on social media. Soon after the story broke, Teka$hi’s management reached out to dispel rumors about Teka$hi and clear the air about the “beef” with rapper ZillaKami that all this stems from.
We already heard that this story was the result of issues with rapper/producer ZillaKami, who used to associate with Teka$hi, until the two had some sort of a falling out. 6ix9ine’s management says this all stems from something ithat went down at a video shoot. Since that video shoot, Teka$hi’s management claims that “their whole thing was to try to slander his name and make him look terrible.” The manager said he believes that this is mainly coming out now because things are going so well for Teka$hi. ZillaKami and Tekashi have gone back and forth through various social media channels with Tekashi waiting outside a tattoo shop to confront Zilla and the two exposing DMs between each other—apparently the disagreement also has something to do with a dispute over who got to use a particular beat.
In reference to Tekashi’s comments on Snapchat claiming to be a “happy rapist,” his management emphasizes that “those comments were intended directly to those specific people. Whatever those statements were in the Snapchat story were taken out of context. He doesn’t even like to say the R word, we don’t play around with that shit. As someone with a 3-year-old daughter we take this very seriously.”
Judging from the clip, it was pretty obvious that 6ix9ine was poking fun at the allegations against him. Even so, without an outright denial it’s hard to know exactly what happened. With his colorful hair and face tattoos, it’s no secret that Teka$hi is certainly a wild one and his management says he “can’t control what he posts on social media.” But their main message is: “Do not take [those comments] out of context or get it misconstrued.”
