On May 22, Tekashi featured on a show at Payne Arena in Hidalgo, Texas. The show appears to have gone off without a hitch, as the Brooklyn rapper apparently filled the arena with a capacity of 6,800 people. 6ix9ine shared footage from the concert on his Instagram account, which shows the rapper showing up with the enthusiastic crowd hitting his lyrics verbatim.
Of course, the gangsta-informant rapper made sure to brag about this feat on social media afterward. “RECALL AND SAY THEY GET 200,000 A SHOW AND PERFORM BEFORE A DEAD CROWD WITH 700 PEOPLE THERE,” he captioned the video of the concert on his Instagram page. “I DROP 4 SONGS A YEAR AND GET 500,000 DOLLARS AT A SHOW AND DO THE ARENAS‼ ️‼ ️‼ ️ TELL THESE RAPPERS TO REACH THE FUCK UPPPPPPPPP,” he added.
He doubled down on his Instagram story soon after, continuing to try to discredit rappers who claim to have more than six figures for a show. “Rappers: I get 200,000 per show. 6ix9ine: That’s cute. We’re doing 500,000 here,” he posted.
6ix9ine has been back on the outside for a few months now. He started playing shows again last month with a concert in Orlando, Florida, where he jumped into the crowd. Internet presence remained worthy of Troll of the Year as it made headlines dissing Lil Reese after Chicago rapper was shot earlier this month.
