Get it together
6ix9ine’s sentencing over compromising photos of himself with an unclothed 13-year-old girl has been delayed yet again. The reasoning? The rapper can’t seem to pass his GED.
The completion of his G.E.D. was part of a plea deal that the rapper took to avoid jail time when he was brought up on charges related to the lewd photos. According to Jezebel, Judge Hon. Felicia Mennin wondered aloud why the rapper hadn’t completed his G.E.D. like he was required to under his plea deal.
“What’s the problem?” she asked.
“He’s struggled through it,” 6ix9ine’s attorney responded.
“This case has been happening since 2015,” said Hon. Mennin. “This is ridiculous.”
6ix9ine explained that he had passed all of the sections barring science and said that he would brush up on the subject and complete the test if given the chance. Mennin accepted 6ix9ine’s request to push his sentencing to April 10 but warned the rapper that he needs to actually get his GED if he wants to stay a free man.
“You may end up going in,” she warned.
It’s been a rough few months for Tekashi 69.
His former associates all distanced themselves from the rapper following the news of his interest in a 13-year-old’s photos.
“I’m sorry brozay, 1400 don’t promote pedophiles,” Trippie Redd said in a since-deleted Instagram video. “If we give n**gas clout, we give n**gas clout. It was an accident.”
Pi’erre Bourne, a producer who had worked with 6ix9ine on his biggest hit, also stepped away from the rapper.
“F**k that Gummo s**t,” he wrote on Twitter. “Y’all n**gas doing weird s**t some opps.”
If the real stories weren’t enough, people were also quick to blame 6ix9ine for ruining Yams Day, the benefit concert and celebration of the late A$AP Yams that ended in a massive brawl.
The “Gummo” rapper denied the claims and posted video of himself leaving the arena at the same time as the rest of the crowd.
“For everybody that’s putting my name in that Yams Day situation, that had nothing to do with me,” he said in the Instagram live video. He continued,
“I’m perfectly fine. That had nothing to do with me. It’s crazy, you know what I’m saying, the amount of hate that just goes around in this world, man. Yams didn’t deserve that. It was a charity event, you know what I’m saying, for Yams’ family. That had nothing to do with me… I wasn’t in no fight. My hair is still laced, this perm. I got into no altercation… You can see my face. I wasn’t shot, I wasn’t stabbed. Stop making up stories…”
He added that he had too much respect for his fellow New Yorkers to ruin Yams Day.
“I have so much respect for the A$AP Mob,” he continued. “And me and Rocky spoke and it was nothing but love, you know what I’m saying? It’s bigger than me. Rest in peace A$AP Yams and the hate needs to stop. This world is full of hate… This is not about Tekashi 6ix9ine. This is about A$AP Yams.”
