Here’s everything you need to know about Tekashi 6ix9ine.

For the past few months, you’ve probably heard about Tekashi 6ix9ine. His rainbow colored hair and matching grillz as well as the number 69 tatted across his body and face make him hard to miss or forget. However, his song “Gummo” has really launched his career. It received co-signs from the likes of Chance the Rapper and Swizz Beatz and landed him a climbing position on the Billboard Hot 100 (currently at No. 13 on the week of Dec. 23rd).

However, with all this success comes controversy. It has come to light that the rapper pleaded guilty to “the use of a child in a sexual performance.”

This information was first unpacked by former collaborators/current beef partners, Trippie Redd and Zillakami (“1400 don’t promote pedophiles,” Trippie said). He’s since responded to the beef with both artists and on multiple occasions, he and his lawyer have continue to claim his innocence. More on that below, though.
