Since cooperating with the federal government to bring down the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods in 2019, 6ix9ine‘s allies have been few and far between. But according to his most recent interview with Carl Lamarre from Billboard, the 24-year-old rapper was offered unlikely guidance from this gangsta rapper.
On Friday (Sept. 4), during his interview to promote his second studio album, TattleTales, 6ix9ine explained how he and DMX forged a relationship, while the “Trollz” rapper was locked up. After being asked how he felt about non-street rappers taking a stance against the rapper’s choices, 6ix9ine details how his relationship with DMX shows that some rappers are still on his side.
“Me and DMX was in full-blown conversations that whole time I was locked up,” Tekashi admits.
He then goes on to explain how the 49-year-old Rough Ryder gave 6ix9ine advice on multiple occasions.
“He was at MCC, he said, to put it like this, he said, quote-on-quote, ‘baby boy, do what you got to do,'” Tekashi continues. “And I’m on the jail phone cause he was at MCC. He was just released one of the guys I was locked up with was celling with DMX at MCC, the Manhattan Correctional Center in MCC. He got released, we stayed in communication, he like ‘yo boy, do what you do.'”
Elsewhere in the interview, 6ix9ine called out Anuel AA for saying he wouldn’t speak with Tekashi anymore due to his legal issues. 6ix9ine claims Anuel not only talked to him after prison but that the two have also worked on a song together.
