The Rise and Fall of Tekashi 6ix9ine
In October 2017 the rapper released "GUMMO" which would eventually get over 360 million views that was followed by the success of "FEFE" and worldwide fame. In less than two years it all came crashing down with today being the day where Tekashi 6ix9ine was sentenced to 2 years in prison, according to cnn.com " He was also sentenced to five years supervised release plus 300 hours of community service. Because he has already served about 13 months behind bars, he is due to be released late next year." So what did he have to say for himself?
"I now know that I am remorseful for what happened because I was blessed with the gift of an opportunity that most people dream of but I squandered it by getting involved with the wrong people and misrepresenting myself when I should have been true to myself and my fans," Hernandez wrote."I'm sorry to the victims who were affected by my actions, to my fans who look up to me and were misled, to my family who depends on me and to this courtroom for this mess that I contributed to."
CNN reported that Hernandez pleaded guilty to nine charges in February, including racketeering, and informed on his associates, according to court documents. He testified as a witness during the trials of Anthony Ellison and Aljermiah Mack, who were both convicted of felonies.
While his fans are celebrating and considering this a win, the question many have is "What happens now/" Do snitches get stitches? Or was his every man for himself mentality the right move? regardless of what happens this entire thing is a tragedy on so many levels and one can only hope that it serves as a lesson to others.
