What is 6IX9INE aka Tekashi69 Net Worth?
Tekashi69 is an American rapper, social media personality, and convicted felon. As of this writing, Tekashi69 has a net worth of $500 thousand. Tekashi is one of the most controversial rappers in the world, both in terms of his art and his personal life.
In 2015, he pled guilty to a felony charge of using a child in a sexual performance. In 2018, he was arrested on racketeering, weapons, drug charges, and conspiracy to commit murder. In return for a reduced two-year sentence, Tekashi testified against his former gang associates.
He was released early due to the COVID-19 pandemic and placed under house arrest.
During his relatively brief career (so far) Teskashi has been able to earn extraordinary sums of money. He has purportedly signed several appearance and contract deals that had the ability to pay, cumulatively, tens of millions of dollars. We’ll discuss Tekashi’s finances in more detail in the next paragraph.
Tekashi69 was born Daniel Hernandez in Bushwick, Brooklyn, New York on May 8, 1996. His mother is from Mexico and his father is from Puerto Rico. He did not meet his father until he was nine years old. Up to that point, he believed his father was not alive. In reality, Daniel Sr. was a heroin addict who was imprisoned.
His father would later claim that the mother’s family prevented Daniel Sr. from seeing Daniel Jr., going so far as to rip up the letters he sent from jail.
The family struggled financially, especially after Daniel’s step-father was shot dead on the steps of the family home in 2010 when Daniel was 14. The death caused severe physiological damage and required Daniel to visit a therapist to treat PSD and depression. He also started acting out in school around this time, getting expelled from school in 8th grade. After leaving school, Daniel began working at a grocery store to help the family financially.
Daniel began rapping when he was 16 years old. An early break occurred when he met the CEO of a record label who came into the Brooklyn bodega where Daniel was working. That record executive, Peter “Righteous P” Rogers ran a label called Hikari-Ultra. Peter encouraged Daniel to begin releasing original songs.
His first song, appropriately titled “69”, was released in 2014. He would release a number of additional singles that year. Over the next three years, Daniel, who by then adopted the name Tekashi 6ix9ine, released a series of albums and videos that earned him moderate popularity in the underground rap scene.
$10 Million Deal
In October 2019, Tekashi signed a confirmed record deal with record company 10K Projects. The deal is reportedly worth at least $10 million and will involve two future albums, one in English and one in Spanish.
In July 2020 Tekashii announced that he had struck a $5 million deal with live-streaming company GlobalStreamNow. The deal covers one virtual performance to be held on September 5, 2020.
Tekashi69 released his debut mixtape, Day69 in 2018. His debut single “Gummo” reached #6 on the US Rap chart, #7 on the US R&B/Hip-Hop chart, and #12 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was certified Gold. 6IX9INE’s single “Kooda” was also certified Gold and reached #29 on the US R&B/Hip-Hop chart and #50 on the Billboard Hot 100. His single “Keke” (with Fetty Wap and A Boogie wit da Hoodie) reached #20 on the US Rap chart, #22 on the US R&B/Hip-Hop chart, and #43 on the Billboard Hot 100.
On May 8, Tekashi released his new song “Gooba” and an accompanying music video. The video quickly shattered the record for the biggest 24-hour debut for a hip-hop video on YouTube. Within 24 hours, the video had 40 million views. The previous one-day hip-hop record of 38 million was set by Eminem in 2018 for his song “Killshot”.
Within a week, “Gooba” had broken 150 million views.
That same day, May 8, Tekashi69 hosted an Instagram live. More than 2 million people tuned in simultaneously, shattering the Instagram live record by more than 1.7 million.
Between YouTube ad revenue, Spotify royalties, and other sources of income, Tekashi publicly claimed that he had earned $2 million off “Gooba” alone in under a week. He also announced his intention to donate 10% of the profits to charity.
