Tekashi69 is finding out the hard way that being a hypebeast doesn't pay, and even 50 Cent is distancing himself from his "son."
Following the news that Tekashi, (real name Daniel Hernandez) had been picked up by the FBI, 50 hopped onto Instagram to let fans know that he will not be answering the "Gummo" rapper's collect calls.
Posting an image of him and Tekashi, he wrote:
"My son got picked up, I told him don’t call me 😟shit. The Fed’s on you fool,😕call ya momma🤷🏽♂️don’t put the FBI on my phone.😳positive vibes only #lecheminduroi"
The 22-year-old rapper is facing a mandatory minimum sentence of 32 years in prison, according to the prosecuting U.S. attorney at the rapper’s arraignment last night.
“[Hernandez] is a member of a violent sect of the Bloods. This defendant participated in multiple acts of violence,” said Assistant US Attorney Michael Longyear at the arraignment.
It is reported that he as picked up when the Feds caught wind that a retaliation was planned against him after he fired his entire team.
Since his arrest, rival Trippie Redd has hopped on Instagram live to sing Akon's hit single "Locked Up," mockin Tekashi, who intentionally made a beeline for Trippie's ex Ayleks, bedding her and posting evidence to his Instagram.
It's a cold world out there. 69 is learning the hard way that industry friends and true friends aren't always the same thing. Perhaps 50 was just joking. But you know what they say... there's truth in every joke!
