Who Will Collab With Tekashi 6ix9ine?

Despite being a chart-topping artist and platinum-selling attraction, Tekashi is still a pariah in the hip-hop game to a lot of rappers who don’t want to associate with a snitch. New York rapper 50 Cent, Meek Mill and Benny The Butcher are just some of the big names who refuse to work with 6ix9ine; not to mention West Coast rap artist YG and the late King Von said they wouldn’t even work with artists who worked with Tekashi.

DJ Envy May Have Been Pranked Too

Somebody seems to be messing around with radio veteran DJ Envy‘s phone. The “Breakfast Club” co-host revealed he received several calls around 4 a.m., and when he called back, they claimed to be connected to Tekashi 6ix9ine.

“Mind you this is four o’clock in the morning. I’m like, ‘I got 30 more minutes of sleep what are you calling me for?’ He said, ‘Hey this is Murphy I was just playing with you. This is Tekashi 6ix9ine’s manager, would you interview him?’ ‘No.’ ‘Does it have to do anything with politics?’ I said, ‘Man, you called me at four o’clock in the morning.’ Bam.”
