Before, rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine seemed to be living a Hannah Montana lifestyle with the best of both worlds. At first many believed he was brought up in a gang and had found his calling in the music industry. However, this is not the case. 6ix9ine was used his gang affiliations to create an image in the industry. He was offered protection, street credit, and career, as long as he provided monetary support and weapons to Nine Trey Gangsta Blood. The whole act was used to gain fans.
“That’s what people liked. It was just a formula, a blueprint that I found that worked,” he stated.
