Today, Hip Hop is all a flutter following news of Tekashi 6ix9ine’s beat down. The controversial rapper has antagonized his peers for years and developed a reputation for being a troll. However, what occurred this week didn’t look like social media antics. 6ix9ine was reportedly working out at an L.A. Fitness when he was accosted. Videos of the assault surfaced online, showing the rapper on the floor being stomped and punched by at least two men. In another clip, the rapper is seen walking out of the establishment, followed by someone who said he was a fan.
Quickly, the videos were shuffled through social media, and commentators jumped into conversations by the thousands. Many of 6ix9ine’s foes used this opportunity to taunt him, including the likes of Boosie Badazz. “Lmao SNITCHES GET STITCHES LETS START A GO FUND FOR THIS GUY ,” the Louisiana rapper wrote. He also shared the video of 6ix9ine being beaten. In another tweet, Boosie added, “WE NEED TO START A GO FUND FOR THIS GUYLIKE COOKIE MONEY SAY WE GOTTA STARTT REWARDING THE REAL ONES ”
Tekashi 6ix9ine Remains Silent
When threatened, 6ix9ine usually takes to his Instagram to poke at his detractors. However, he’s remained silent about this attack. Not everyone believes it was needed, like Rich Dollaz, who questioned why the rapper assaulted when George Zimmerman remained untouched. Zimmerman chased and murdered 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in 2012 as the teen walked home from the store. It isn’t just Rich who is taking a different approach; Wack 100 is friends with 6ix9ine and called out his assailants for filming the altercation.
“It’s unfortunate what happened to [6ix9ine],” wrote Wack. “Hes a good guy .Life is full of lessons. This isn’t about his so called street situation. This is about decision making on both sides. The ones who filmed & posted themselves will remember this day for many years to come . And 69 will now know he has to move accordingly. #StayDangerous & don’t hesitate . Wish him a speedy recovery.” Wack further called out the attackers for recording, noting that “clout is the new crack.”
