Takeshi 6ix9ine brags 'I shot you, I robbed you' as he trolls rivals in new video after jail release
CONTROVERSIAL performer Takeshi 6ix9ine has bragged about his days of "shooting and robbing" rappers in a new video.
Despite still being on probation following his release from jail, the 24-year-old rapper, from New York, trolled his rivals in a preview of a new track on Instagram.
In the clip, the Brooklyn rapper boasts: "I shot you, I robbed you. And y’all ain’t do nothing back.
"I shot at all you rappers real life, no cap. The feds charged me for that, whole f*****g case."
The video of Takeshi dressed in a pink Balenciaga jumper and matching pink trainers has been viewed more than 10 million times and racked up 174,000 comments.
The rapper is allowed to use social media despite the fact he is under federally-supervised probation for the next five years, HipHopDX reports.
Following his release from jail, Takeshi's attorney Dawn Florio insisted her client would not "start beefs" or troll other rappers on social media, TMZ reports.
But this is the second video released by Takeshi this month which takes aim at other rappers.
The multi-tattooed rapper previewed another track with threatening lyrics on February 4.
It comes after the rainbow-haired rapper, real name Daniel Hernandez, was released from jail in April last year over fears he would catch the coronavirus in a New York prison.
He served the remaining four months of his prison sentence at home in incarceration.
The rapper has a complex criminal history, and is associated with the Nine Trey Gansta Blood gang of New York – labelled a "violent city gang" by the US Attorney Office.
He was originally arrested on racketeering charges and could have faced up to 47 years in prison before striking a plea deal with prosecutors to testify against fellow gang members Anthony 'Harv' Ellison and Aljermiah 'Nuke' Mack.
The judge described the move as "unprecedented".
Following the deal, he was sentenced to just two years in jail, 13 months of which he had already served.
Tekashi also pleaded guilty to "the use of a child in a sexual performance" after posting a video in 2015.
During an Instagram Live rant following his release from prison, he claimed he was "the biggest artist in the world" and denied that he was a "snitch" after testifying against members of the gang in court.
He said: "I appreciate every little thing and I did nothing wrong. Yes, I didn’t need all of that beef. I’m the biggest artist in the f***ing world."
Since his release from jail, Tekashi has been releasing music, including TattleTales, which is the second studio album by the American rapper.
The rapper first found viral fame by uploading tracks to SoundCloud.
As of 2020, his net worth is roughly estimated at nearly £3,230,000.
The rapper, whose name is pronounced "six nine", first began releasing songs in 2014 and gained mainstream attention for his style of aggressive rap mixed with anime visuals.
He rose to fame in late 2017 with the release of his debut commercial single Gummo which became platinum, but his career has also been blighted by personal and legal issues.
Prior to his music career he sold marijuana to support his family after his father was murdered in 2009.
