6ix9ine Details Relationship with His Father
6ix9ine is opening up about his estranged relationship with his father.
In a conversation with DJ Akademiks, Tekashi 6ix9ine has said that he refuses to give money to his dad, who also happens to be homeless.
“You think he’d come hook me up with something,” the 60-year-old told Page Six. “He’s been giving money to other people. … He gives money to everybody. ‘Here, here, here.’”
In 6ix9ine’s latest chat with DJ Akademiks, 6ix9ine explained his reasoning for not providing funds to his father.
“Everybody knows I was abandoned at birth. Everybody knows that my biological father abandoned me at birth,” explained 6ix9ine. “Right now, he’s in a shelter smoking crack. The story of me not giving money to a crackhead who abandoned me at birth is getting more publicity than the positive things. Why? Because it’s a trend to hate me.”
He suggested that the story of him not giving money to his father was spurred by people’s desire to hate on him, or as he put it: “It’s like a trend to hate me.”
6ix9ine’s Last Encounter with His Dad
Hernandez made a brief appearance during 6ix9ine’s long-winded trial in 2019, which the rapper says was also the last time he saw him.
“[He was] trying to help me for what?” said 6ix9ine. “So I could be free and give him money? The narrative will always be, like, let’s make Tekashi 6ix9ine like the worst human being in the world but just look at it the way [they] want to look at it… Like, ‘Oh my god, his father is in the shelter, and Tekashi doesn’t give a fuck about him and just gives money to everybody else but his dad.”
