The troublesome rapper claims he’s broke and without a recording contract, struggling to make ends meet after spending millions on expensive cars and jewelry
Tekashi 6ix9ine claimed in recent court documents that he was “struggling to make ends meet” and needed financial assistance in court documents obtained by Complex.
“Right now, I’m struggling to make ends meet. I don’t know if I’ll ever get the kind of advances I received before my arrest, and my career has stalled,” reveals New York rapper.
“I received large advances under the recording and merchandising agreements prior to my arrest,” he states, “however, I do not receive any royalties under these agreements either since my accounts of royalties are still not recovered”.
6ix9ine was sentenced to civil action in December for his role in a 2018 armed robbery. Plaintiffs Seketha Wonzer and Kevin Dozier claim the 25-year-old rapper was present when fellow Trey Nine Bloods handed them a ambush in Manhattan on April 3, 2018.
6ix9ine claims the unfavorable ruling will put him out of business. “It would undoubtedly bankrupt me in a way that I will never recover from, to the detriment and irreversible hardship of my family members,” he claimed.
In December, the problematic rapper was reportedly sued by promotion company JJD Entertainment after he was paid to perform and took the money without performing.
They claimed they hired Tekashi to play at the Humble Civic Center in Houston, Texas in June 2021, arranged for his private plane, and offered him $75,000. Tekashi reportedly arrived on the scene, accepted the money, then fled.
JJD Entertainment employee Jamie Dominquez chimed in on the matter, saying, “Tekashi received $45,000 upon signing the paperwork and an additional $75,000 in cash on the day of the event as part of the contract. He was also supposed to be paid $20,000 for a plane ticket from Boca Roton to Texas,” he said.
