Tekashi 6ix9ine likely won’t be bragging about this on social media. On Saturday (April 28), TMZ reported the polarizing rainbow-haired rapper has been dropped from his $4.9 million deal with TUNES Audio.
According to a TUNES Audio rep, 6ix9ine’s close affiliation to a recent shooting cost him the contract.
“At this time it is in the best interest of our company to move on,” the rep said. “We wish him well, he’s a great artist.”
Earlier this month, the DAY69 rapper and his crew were allegedly involved in a shooting at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center during the Adrian Broner vs. Jessie Vargas fight. 6ix9ine’s manager Tr3yway is now a person of interest and police are currently investigating the alleged incident.
Broner and 6ix9ine traded verbal blows on Instagram following the event.
As a result, the 21-year-old sensation has also been cut from the Soulfrito Fest 2018 at the Barclays Center where he was scheduled to perform on June 8.
