Despite making an enemy out of many of his contemporaries in and outside of the music business, 6ix9ine‘s success has endured to almost puzzling heights.
The impetus behind his popularity has become a muse for filmmakers who have sought to bring his childhood story and tale of his meteoric rise to fame to the small screen via two separate, unrelated documentaries – Hulu’s ’69: The Saga of Danny Hernandez’ and Showtime’s ‘Supervillain: The Making of Tekashi 6ix9ine.’ While the latter isn’t due until next year, the former hit screens this week to critical acclaim.
Yet, for all the fanfare it’s generated there’s one who is unlikely to be imparting a standing ovation: the rapper himself.
After the Vikram Gandhi-directed Hulu special arrived Monday (November 16), Murda Murphy – 6ix9ine’s manager – took to Instagram to tell fans not to support it or the soon-to-be-released Showtime doc.
