New York rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine is going to be laughing straight to the bank once he’s officially off of house arrest. The hip-hop star has reportedly secured a $5 million live-streaming deal and already set a concert date.
Tekashi 6ix9ine’s $5 Million Deal
According to new reports, Tekashi signed on the dotted line to the sum of $5 million with a company called GlobalStreamNow. The amount is expected to cover a virtual performance he’ll livestream in late summer.
Tekashi tells us he’ll hit the stage Saturday, Sept. 5 at 8 PM ET for the live-streamed show, which he says will run for about an hour and feature 12 songs from his album. He’ll also interact online with fans. 6ix9ine is almost done with home confinement, but is keeping the physical location of his live stream under wraps. Remember, there’s still concern about revenge for snitching, so Tekashi says security will be on hand to make sure everything goes off without a hitch. (TMZ)
Before Tekashi 6ix9ine’s $5 million deal came together, he shocked the world by pulling the plug on his popular Instagram and Twitter pages. However, the rap entertainer reportedly credited his upcoming release from house arrest as the motivation for fading to digital black.
6ix9ine tells TMZ … he just temporarily deactivated his Instagram account ahead of his home confinement ending around August 1. The reason? He says his lawyer, Lance Lazzaro, recommended it for the rapper’s safety, so he’s following through. Tekashi says as freedom nears, his legal team thinks he might mistakenly leak some crucial info about his whereabouts, meaning where he is now or where he’ll be next … once he’s cut loose. We’re told Tekashi’s team hasn’t quite decided on that yet, but out of an abundance of caution they’re advising he go dark for a while as they figure out that next move. (TMZ)
