6ix 9ine gives details about his robbery

Early Sunday morning (July 22nd) TMZ reported that controversial rapper 6ix 9ine was beaten, kidnapped, and robbed outside of his home in Brooklyn.

However, by midday, there was active discussion on social media, with people wondering if that this was just a stunt to support his new single FEFE,” which features Nicki Minaj. What didn’t help is that 6ix 9ine gave a very different story to the police than the one that was originally reported by TMZ.

On Sunday afternoon 6ix 9ine reached out to DJ Akademiks while the blogger was live streaming on Twitch. 6ix 9ine started the interview by saying that he’s fine, even though he claims that he suffered a concussion.

During the conversation Tekashi 6ix9ine claimed that the robbery was an inside job saying:

“It’s niggas that know how the king of New York moves, you know what I’m saying? The only person that can get a Pharaoh in Egypt is the person who helped build the fuckin’ kingdom, you know what I’m saying? Theniggas that’s right next to him. The niggas that know who built that shit, that got the blueprints.”

DJ Akademiks also asked the rapper if he would do anything to shrink his circle, 6ix 9ine said: My circle been short, it’s just that I opened it with the wrong niggas.”

Later on in the day Tekashi 6ix9ine posted a cryptic Instagram post where he posted the photo of XXXTentacion and a message saying: “As crazy as it sounds.. yesterday morning I had a feeling that it was my day to die. May GOD strike me dead if I’m lying. Everything happens for a reason.”
