6ix9ine claims he’s broke despite flaunting millions of dollars.
Last week, the “GINÉ” rapper posted a video to Instagram of himself walking around with allegedly $2 million in cash while surrounded by a fleet of luxury cars.
“I don’t cap. It’s really my lifestyle. That’s really how I live,” he said while showing off several diamond watches that he claims cost as much as a house.
“I really have your net worth in my trunk,” he said as he popped the hood of a Lamborghini with more money inside.
He went on to count $1.3 million in cash. “It’s really my lifestyle. I’m the king of New York. I could really take a two year break from rap. I could do that. You all can’t do that,’ he said.
When asked about the ostentatious display of wealth, he claimed the money wasn’t real and that he was using fake money for “entertainment purposes.” “I don’t have it right now. That was prop money,” he told TMZ just days later. “I’m an entertainer… I have a degree in entertainment.”
6ix9ine may be claiming he’s broke because he owes $1 million to robbery victims in a criminal case in which he ratted out members of his former gang to get a reduced sentence. In legal documents, he told a judge that he was “struggling to make ends meet” and that he was on the brink of bankruptcy.
In the video, 6ix9ine also appeared to mock Fivio Foreign – who recently contested his title as “King of New York” – although he didn’t mention Fivio by name.
Tekashi insists that he had no intention of getting angry with anyone and that he just wanted to “come out on the bright side.” “My plan was not to offend anyone, it was easy to drop the music and get back into the realm of my art,” he said. “I came out, I didn’t mention anyone. Fivio jumped out of the window first. He could have just stood still.”
On his new single “GINÉ,” which was released Friday, he shoots Lil Durk again after the death of King Von. But he says he didn’t start the beef.
“If you just leave me alone, I don’t have to do that,” said the infamous troll. “Why does King Von diss me after he’s dead? Why not crucify his management, his team, his label? Why continue with the beef when your artist died of beef?”
