While a complete rebrand is difficult under the best of circumstances, Tekashi 6ix9ine appears ready and willing to shoot for the stars.
Following his controversial return to the game, which manifested in a staggeringly populated Instagram Live session of two-million views, 6ix9ine has dedicated himself as wholly to the snitch label; in fact, he appears willing to embrace it as hard as he once embraced the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.
Today, 6ix9ine took to Instagram to provide his target audience with exactly what they’ve come to desire — memes. And self-deprecating ones at that.
Circling back to one of his earlier songs, the DJ SpinKing-assisted “TATI,” 6ix9ine highlighted a few choice lyrics that haven’t entirely aged well (though the same could be said about the bulk of DUMMY BOY and the like).
“Police pull up on me, I don’t know what happened,” he rapped. “Police pull up on you, you gon’ get to yappin’.”
Given how everything ended up playing out, 6ix9ine decided it high time to request a do-over.
“Could I take it back or it’s to late?” he jokes, his attitude likely infuriating his critics and amusing his base to no end.
For the most part, it seems as if this is bound to be the Tekashi effect moving forward. Whether you’re on board with the shenanigans is entirely up to you.
