Rolling Loud hit Miami this weekend and one person left off the bill was controversial rap star Tekashi 6ix9ine. In the past, he’s spoken on how festivals are purposely blackballing him from performing and in a recent social media rant, he blasted the three-day Hip Hop music event for not including him. He blames it on the industry being scared of a “Mexican kid with rainbow hair.”
“I’m the only nigga in the rap game right now that hasn’t been to Rolling Loud,” 6ix9ine says.
“I’m actually the hottest nigga in the fucking rap game with six for six Billboard hits, platinum records that hasn’t touched that stage, blood. Niggas be real scared. That’s how you know niggas is real … niggas is dangerous. Niggas is scared of me like, I’m a Mexican kid with rainbow hair and niggas be terrified. ‘That kid, he might hit us.‘ Niggas is straight soft. This game is soft. This industry is fucking soft.”
You may know that wherever Tekashi goes trouble is sure to follow. It’s negativity such as fights and shootouts that may be preventing promoters from including him. His “untouchable” ego has gotten him into hot water with numerous people across the United States. He is also trying to rid himself from the perception of being a pedophile from a charge he caught in 2015 for use of a child in a sexual performance. Maybe if he cleans up his act and stays humble he may see a bigger stage, until then it’s clear Tekashi will be left out of certain festivals.
