Controversial rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine has recently made an appearance on the popular Spanish language show “El Gordo Y La Flaca” on Univision. During the interview, hosted by Raúl De Molina (“El Gordo”) and Cuban model Lili Estefan (“La Flaca”), talked about his past and the brutal attack he suffered in a Florida gym.

The interview began with the hosts introducing 6ix9ine as the son of a Mexican mother and a Puerto Rican father. They also briefly discussed his troubled childhood, as his father left when he was very young. 6ix9ine confirmed that he had a tough life, even after becoming a celebrity.

When asked about the worst thing he had to endure to gain fame, the rapper replied that it was the difficulty of trusting people. He said that when you are the one who makes money in your circle, it's hard to trust people because everyone wants something. He added that he has always been someone who trusts people, but he learned the hard way that not everyone can be trusted.

The hosts then asked 6ix9ine about his disappearance from the public eye after he testified against a gang from New York, who then threatened to kill him. 6ix9ine confirmed that this was true and explained that he now walks around without security. He admitted that he previously had security, but he found it hard to trust even those who have a profession as security because everyone has a price.

The interview then turned to the recent attack that 6ix9ine suffered at a gym in Florida. The rapper said he didn't know how to explain what had happened, but he had only been at the gym for about 10 minutes when he was attacked. He said he had not told anyone he was going to the gym, and when he was in the sauna, he was talking to a friend on the phone. When he hung up, he was suddenly attacked.


6ix9ine also addressed the attack on his Instagram page by sharing a snippet of the fight and writing:

“First time addressing the situation. For 2 years I been walking around with no security. Not saying I promote that BUT now you see I really never hid from anything. If you ever crossed my path or ever came to my house (you girls know who you are) ya can tell the world ‘Danny drives his own cars and be solo.' You know how many of you people seen me in real life by myself in gas stations, supermarkets, restaurants, etc. Anyway what happened here was nothing but cowardly. I'm not mad this happened.”

“In the street, there's no rules so I can't say they were wrong. Obviously, it wasn't fair but again the streets have no rules. Just imagine having nothing to do with a situation and feel obligated to make it your business. (Very weird) I'm happy to be here still. And I want to say I love my fans. Thank you. P.S.: I never knew we respected jumping people. When did that ever become a W???” He continued by expressing his thoughts on the situation and the street code that exists.


During the interview, the host asked 6ix9ine if he had gotten into an argument with anyone or knew the people who attacked him. The rapper replied that he had not and that he was caught off guard by the attack. He said that when he came out of the sauna, he had his earphones in, but he could tell someone was trying to say something to him. When he took out his earphones, he was immediately attacked by a tall man who said, “It's only you and me.” Four other men then joined in, and 6ix9ine felt exhausted after about a minute of fighting.

The rapper also confirmed that he still had a bloody-looking right eye because a vein had exploded during the attack. He said it would take about a month to heal.

The hosts sympathized with 6ix9ine, and the rapper said that he felt more at peace now. He also talked about his mother's advice, saying that she had told him, “You're bad, you're alone; you're good, you're alone.”

The interview concluded with 6ix9ine talking about the difficulties he faced as an immigrant in the United States. He said that his mother had the American dream, but he had to work hard to make it a reality. The rapper also thanked his fans for their support and promised to continue making .


The interview with 6ix9ine on “El Gordo Y La Flaca” covered a range of topics, including the rapper's troubled childhood, his experiences with fame, and the recent attack he suffered. The hosts showed sympathy towards the rapper, and he expressed gratitude towards his fans. The Tv show provided an insight into the life of one of the most controversial figures in modern music.

6ix9ine has recently released a new song titled “Bori,” featuring Lenier. To promote the new track, he shared a short video on his social media account, where he can be seen shooting the music video. The song has already received an overwhelming response from the audience and has crossed over 4 million views on YouTube.


In the video, 6ix9ine shared a heartwarming story about his visit to Cuba. He mentioned how he wanted to experience the local and lifestyle, so he asked his driver to stop the car randomly. He did not want to stay in a hotel or rented house and preferred to live with the locals. During his stay, he met a family who welcomed him into their home with open arms. He expressed his gratitude towards them and shared his experience with his fans.

6ix9ine shared the link to the music video on his Instagram page, along with the caption, “So when I first got to Cuba 🇨🇺 I told the driver to randomly stop the car. I didn't want to stay in a hotel or rented house. I wanted to live there with them, to experience what it was like to wake up every day and work on their land (where I was told they're people who only make up to 14$ a month)…. This family here welcomed me into their home and I can't be more grateful.

It seems like the rapper has had an incredible experience while shooting for the music video and has created a unique memory that he will cherish forever.
