Seems like Tekashi is back to his trolling ways.
In a very Tekashi way, the former rapper used his Instagram bio to address the label, with the bio currently reading: “Why everybody callin me a snitch? I’m missin something?” His profile picture also finds him in a prison jumpsuit laying on a mouse trap as he’s about to eat a piece of cheese, presumably a reference to him also being called a “rat.”
Prior to the bio change, Tekashi had made light of the snitch label when he commented on a post The Shade Room had made about Los Angeles Eric Garcetti offering rewards to people willing to tell on non-essential businesses (as well as regular people) who were violating the city’s stay-at-home order. Tekashi’s comment is still available to view on the post.
