Tekashi 6ix9ine has managed to make a name for itself for its particular brand of self-promotion. The rapper marketed his brand by hunting down other performing artists and poking fun at the tactics of the music industry.
Even though 6ix9ine has been sidelined for speaking to his former associates in Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, the rapper has pointed the finger at other members of the rap community who ostensibly did the same.
Regardless, it has been reported by several outlets over the past few weeks that the hype surrounding Tekashi 6ix9ine has since died. Especially considering the respected members of the hip-hop community refused to hold talks with him.
During a new conversation with Fox 5 New York , Tekashi sat down with reporters and reflected on his rise to fame, as well as what it was like to sit behind bars. The rapper admitted that he had already thought about killing himself.
6ix9ine admitted that other people may have attempted suicide if they were in a similar situation. He claims he also thought about killing himself. There was so much pressure on him as he sat behind bars, the rapper explained.
6ix9ine says he asked himself, “when is this going to end?” The positive side of his struggle is that he managed to come out much stronger than he was before. According to Tekashi 6ix9ine, “God” built him to be incredibly strong.
The rapper, also known as Daniel Hernandez , alluded to the notorious saying, “what doesn’t kill you will only make you stronger”, when he declared that he was now ready to take on any challenge. He is at the “peak” of his mental well-being. Hernandez says he knows he will be fine.
This comes after Tekashi’s last record, Tattle’s Tales , did not perform as well as he had hoped. Estimates say his new project would only move around 50,000 units, rather than initial projections of 150,000 units.
Hernandez later posted a video of himself on the streets of New York distributes copies of his latest project.
