6ix9ine is leveraging his controversial status for some serious guap. 👀
Though his social media is shut down at the moment for safety reasons, 6ix9ine is apparently preparing another big return to the public eye. On the internet, at least.
TMZ reported that Tekashi signed a $5 million deal with GlobalStreamNow to perform his soon-to-be-released album on a live stream.
Sources said he'll be doing 12 songs from the project while also interacting with fans over the course of about an hour. Details are sparse, but there are plans to have dancers, "eye candy" and even a live band.
GlobalStreamNow, a start-up that calls itself the "leading independent Live Streaming company in the world," has launched a countdown to the virtual show on Saturday, Sept. 5. Tickets are priced at $6.99, of course.
Not much has been revealed about Tekashi's second studio album outside of the three singles he's dropped – "GOOBA," "TROLLZ" and "YAYA" – since coming home in April. However, he did tease a "Locked Up" part two with Akon, so that could appear on the tracklist.
His 2018 debut, DUMMY BOY, premiered at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 with help from featured names like Lil Baby, Kanye West, Nicki Minaj and others.
Heading into the final days of his house arrest, marking the end of a two-year sentence for racketeering, the 24-year-old has been advised by his legal team to stay silent and keep his location under wraps. Still, he's reportedly persistent that he won't be abandoning his hometown of New York.
To protect himself from those who may want to serve some of their own justice, 22 former law enforcement officers have reportedly been hired. He'll also have a set of five bulletproof SUVs to transport him around town once he's free.
