Seems like Tekashi is back to his trolling ways.

Tekashi 6ix9ine has addressed the “snitch” label that came about following his testimony against the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods last year.

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.

Tekashi’s motion for “compassionate release” was granted on Thursday, April 2. He will be on supervised release and is set to serve the first four months on home incarceration.
