According To Wack 100 Needed $20 For Gas

6ix9ine has been bleeding money for a while. In court records filed in March 2022, 6ix9ine disclosed that he was broke and had made little to no money since his successful return two years prior.

Following his comeback, Tekashi 6ix9ine‘s career saw a dramatic drop. The rapper's court papers revealed that 6ix9ine is broke with barely any revenue to keep him going.

In response to the case, 6ix9ine stated in his plea that he was struggling to pay his obligations and that his profits had started to dry up since his comeback in 2020. “Right now, I am struggling to make ends meet”: he stated “I do not know if I will ever command the kind of advances I was paid before my arrest, and my career stalled. If the Court awards the compensatory damages and punitive damages sought by the Plaintiffs at this inquest, it will surely bankrupt me in a way from which I will never recover to the permanent detriment of the family members who rely upon me.”

The Gooba rapper also revealed that his record deal with 10,000 projects, as well as a merchandising deal, had ended. “I did receive large advances under the recording artist and merchandising agreements prior to my arrest”: the rapper stated in the documents. “However, I do not receive any royalties under those agreements either since my royalty accounts remain unrecouped.”

6ix9ine's financial predicament has been discussed by Wack 100

6ix9ine business manager, , joked in a conversation with The Clubhouse on March 14 that his client barely generated enough funds to pay for gas, adding that he jumped in and helped fill up the rapper's car. Wack 100 said in the Clubhouse conversation “Yeah, he broke as a muthafucka, That n***a 6ix9ine ain't got nothin'! I had to send him $20 for some gas.”

NBA YoungBoy had previously declined to collaborate with 6ix9ine, but in late December, he stated that he was interested in doing so.

During a Clubhouse interview with DJ Akademiks, Youngboy has since declared that he would have no problem collaborating with the rainbow artist.

“I'll do a song with 6ix9ine before I do a song with half of these p***y ass n***s, ya hear me?” Youngboy stated, to which answered, “The industry gon' kill you for that.”

NBA YoungBoy openly stated that he doesn't give a damn what the rest of the hip-hop music industry thinks of his approach. The rapper went on to say that he had nothing against .

“I ain't got sh*t. I ain't got nothin' against him. That sh*t ain't gon nun to do with me. I wasn't in his situation. Half of these p**y ass n**s that be talkin' don't know what they'd do if they were in his situation. What the f**k that got to do with me or anybody else?”: Youngboy challenged.

, a very close friend of 6ix9ine, believes the rapper will approach YoungBoy for a collaboration. The Youtuber AK informed that Tekashi might contact him whenever he's ready since he's more than eager to speak with NBA Younboy.

Considering that Younboy is still a very popular artist among the youngsters, believes that this collaboration could very well be the financial salvation for the rainbow artist.

After 6ix9ine release from prison, the rainbow rapper was mostly popular thanks to the large number of views his music videos garnered, which only boosted his streaming numbers.

As each new video was released, Tekashi's viewership and physical sales decreased, proving that people were watching just out of curiosity rather than because they were interested in the rapper's music.

6ix9ine first two singles, Gooba and Trollz, were huge hits, but his follow-up singles, Yaya and Punani, were not nearly as successful.

Tekashi's album TattleTales peaked at No. 4 on Billboard's Hot 200 with just 53,000 copies sold by the time it was published back in September 2020.

The controversial rapper's net worth is estimated to be $8 million, but given that he hasn't toured in years and hasn't released any music since 2020, that amount may have dropped.

6ix9ine is facing legal action related to a robbery he was involved in 2018. The claimants are seeking $11.8 million in aggravated damages and civil damages, and Tekashi has declared that he is bankrupt to the judge.

It has not yet been determined whether or not Tekashi will be forced to pay the large sum of money because the civil lawsuit remains pending.
