There has not been much talk surrounding the NYC rapper known as Tekashi. However, it seems like he’s back in the centerfold of the drama.
Tekashi was known as one of the most brutal rappers while he was performing. It seemed as though everywhere you looked he was mixed in the drama. The Tr3yway rapper hasn’t seen the light of day in several months, and that won’t change anytime soon. He’s been slapped with plenty of charges, and even put out a hit on camera for rapper Chief Keef. Now more news is rolling out about Tekashi’s previous involvement in several cases. Overall, we’re shocked that Tekashi did Jussie Smollett style kidnapping for his album promotion.
“No robbery or kidnapping or assault happened,” said Devereaux Cannick, the defense attorney for alleged kidnapper Anthony Ellison said per Page Six. “He was about to drop another album…gotta get that buzz up. That’s how he makes money.”
It was in July of last year, that the rapper allegedly was taken against his own will. The story reflected that 6ix9ine was taken into a car and assaulted, and later on robbed for jewelry and a large amount of cash. The staged kidnapping is one far too familiar in the world of entertainment. Jussie Smollett is currently dealing with backlash from a staged attack. The alleged attack was pinpointed at him for being black and gay. Since then the actor has banished from Empire, with little to no signs of officially returning.
“They’re saying the car [where the kidnapping allegedly occurred] was wired by the government,” he explained. “We believe that’s going to be very helpful to the defense.”
Furthermore, the rapper trial set to begin in August. Since last year, the rapper has been cooperating w
ith federal officials that may surely help him reduce his time significantly.
In conclusion, do you believe Tekashi did Jussie Smollett style kidnapping? Should he get a lighter sentence after all the chaos he has caused? Leave your comments below and stay tuned to Hypefresh.co.
