Akon will not be jumping on the Tekashi 6ix9ine hate bandwagon anytime soon, as the energy mogul thinks that folks should not blame the incarcerated rapper for snitching on his peers.
"He comes from a generation that really had no moral ethic. This generation is nothing like our generation coming up. Our generation, we had rules, there were certain boundaries that you don't cross. There was a certain line of respect that we had for each other. There was always a level of selfishness that we just only kept to our self. Like we never gave up each other for our own freedom because we are expecting him for him to do the same for us," he said during an interview with the U.K.'s Capital Xtra.
He continued: "Now Tekashi is a little different. I can't really speak on why he would do that. Most likely, for the obvious reasons, but everyone goes through something in their life that propels them to do things that they feel is in the best interest of themselves. You can't really blame him if what he is saying is the truth. Now granted, there's this big rule that you never talk, you never speak to the police, you don't rat. I get it," he explained.
Tekashi could be freed as soon as January after he turned on his fellow Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods in exchange for a lighter sentence.
"But, at the end of the day, if it's true, and he said it, it is what it is... Now, if you feel some kind of way that he said it, that's a personal problem between y'all got to do according to what y'all decided what the rules were."
