On Thursday (Aug. 26), Tekashi confirmed via an Instagram post that his next studio album, Tattle Tales, will be released Sept. 4. The news of the forthcoming album comes just one week before its projected arrival. The album’s title leans into the snitch label the rhymer was branded with after testifying against members of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang.
“We just landed in Chicago and all that. Yo, I got a huge announcement for y’all. I’m droppin’ the album Sept. 4. Tattle Tales, the album,” the 24-year-old rapper began in the IG video. “I think the killers, the hitters, is over here. Try to keep it down. Sept. 4. Yo, listen. Sept. 4, the album’s coming. Let’s pay respect to all the soldiers.”
6ix9ine’s newly released singles, “Trollz,” “Punani,” and “Gooba” will likely land on the rapper’s new album. His part two to Akon’s “Locked Up” could potentially appear on the LP as well. Earlier this month, the Konvict Muzik founder confirmed the track will appear on Tekashi’s album. 6ix9ine’s team confirmed to XXL that the song will be on his upcoming effort as well.
“That’s not going on my album, but it’s going on his [6ix9ine’s] album,” Akon said. “It was more for him to tell his story, and I thought it was super important, because most people never really been locked up, so it was funny to read some of them comments. If they ever been in the facility or ever been locked up somehow, they would know that the jails are filled and more populated with snitches than it is with regular people and than people who committed normal crime.”
Tattle Tales will be the second studio album released but the Brooklyn native, and the first project since he was arrested for his involvement with the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods. On April 2, 6ix9ine was released from prison to serve the last four months of his sentence for federal racketeering and firearms charges on home confinement. He was officially released freed from home confinement on August 2.
