Over the last few weeks, Tekashi 6ix9ine has all but disappeared from social media, which is strange for him because the rapper managed to make a name for himself primarily through his self-promotion on Instagram.
In recent news, the rapper was in the headlines for his latest record, Tattle Tales, which didn’t perform as well in its first week sales as he had hoped. When the performing artist first got out of prison, he released two singles one after another, including the successful “GOOBA,” and then the Nicki Minaj featured song, “TROLLZ.”
Additionally, Tekashi began making waves on his Instagram Live, however, the tide has turned and it appears the performer as gone into hiding. While he hasn’t been as active on social media, All Hip Hop reports this week that the rapper is currently embroiled in a lawsuit regarding website design.
In case you missed it, it was reported previously that Tekashi 6ix9ine was under fire by a man named, Yony Sosa, who filed a suit against him for accessibility barriers. Sosa filed a suit against 6ix9ine due to the fact his online store wasn’t set up in a way that catered to blind people.
All Hip Hop claims that after the class-action lawsuit was filed against him, Sosa and 6ix9ine reached a settlement this week, which closed out the lawsuit without costing anything to either party.
This isn’t the only challenge the rapper has faced since he got out of prison. As it was noted above, Daniel Hernandez – also known as Tekashi 6ix9ine – seemed to be on top of the world when he was first released from jail.
But when it was announced that his record would be greatly overshadowed by the likes of Big Sean, media reports began coming down on him. Truthfully, the fact his record was projected to move only 53,000 copies, down from 150,000 still pushed it to the top of the charts.
The rapper has complained of being blackballed in the industry, including by some of the most respected members of the hip-hop podcasting community, including The Breakfast Club and Joe Budden.
