Before You Go
On Wednesday, Tekashi relied on his Instagram page to call out Billboard. 6ix9ine tooted his own horn about “GOOBA” dominating streams and asked Billboard to properly report his stats.
“@billboard We’re watching this very closely. The world is watching very closely, we love you and always supported the charting. On every platform we are dominating by a LANDSLIDE. The numbers are there and to be looked at. WITH NO RADIO WE ARE DOMINATING THE STREAMS. I will hate to believe that people pay for their spins on the radio and making manipulating bundles to manipulate the chart. Again it’s still early Im just making it clear that the world is watching” -Tekashi 6ix9ine’s Instagram
