They finally got him
Tekashi69 kept bragging that he couldn’t be touched… and it looks like his talk finally caught up with him. The New York-based knucklehead rapper was easily spotted at LAX via his distinctive rainbow hairstyle, and two men who had heard enough of the talk rolled up on him right outside the terminal.
After some tense back-and-forth — and Tekashi getting shuffled away by his friends — one of Tekashi’s team members blindsided the would-be assailant and punched him in the side of the head. At this point, the fight kicked off for real with Tekashi’s mob going after the two men and throwing punches in the middle of the terminal’s departing lanes. Cars can be heard honking at the men as vehicles narrowly avoid the brawlers while they throw down in the middle of the busy street.
Tekashi himself jumped back into the fight but beyond a point where he stumbled and fell to the ground, it’s hard to tell what the rapper did in the fray.
Eventually, the two groups parted on their own and 6ix9ine went into the airport. Police arrived to question everyone involved but no one wanted to press charges. In an interview with TMZ Tekashi said that he wasn’t going to let the fight get to him.
“Nothing happened, you know what I’m saying,” he said. “You see the footage, you got the footage… His face was broken. You see his face was broken?”
6ix9ine said that people were fighting him to make a name for themselves. He also said that he wasn’t worried about people tracking him down.
“I gotta keep a smile on my face because all this s**t is funny to me. I’m gonna keep trolling these n**gas. They still haven’t found me and I’m not that hard to find,” he said.
It’s the second time in recent memory that the rapper has been associated with a brawl, but this time he was actually involved. Accusations flew that the trolling rapper had sparked a fight that ended the A$AP Mob’s tribute concert to their late guru ASAP Yams.

Yams Day had to end early because of a massive backstage brawl, and the word around the venue was Tekashi started it. Of course, he took to social media to dispel all those rumors, saying he had too much respect for his fellow New York rappers to shut down their show.
“Ya will never see a video of me getting touched,” he wrote along with a video of him leaving the venue while the fights were ongoing. “Ya want something bad to happen to me so bad.”
In a second video, he explained that he would never fight on Yams Day.
“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.“
“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.”
