Showtime Drops Trailer For 'Supervillain: The Making of Tekashi 6ix9ine' Doc

Publish date:

Tekashi 6ix9ine is about to be everywhere again as SHOWTIME drops the trailer for their documentary, Supervillain: The Making of Tekashi 6ix9ine. 

“We live in an attention economy. A digital culture that can empower people with no talent or morals to become famous,” director Karam Gill said in a statement per XXL. “This series is bigger than 6ix9ine. It’s a cautionary tale about manufactured celebrity and how when our society allows Supervillains to rise, the collateral damage can be massive. In the era of Trump and the January 6 insurrection, understanding and analyzing these stories is extremely important.”


According to the press release, "SUPERVILLAIN will trace how New York City deli clerk Daniel Hernandez manufactured himself into viral hip hop sensation Tekashi 6ix9ine, the ruthless, tattooed face of Gen Z and hip hop’s prince of trolls. Based on Witt’s Rolling Stone feature, “Tekashi 6ix9ine: The Rise and Fall of a Hip-Hop Supervillain,” the series features an exclusive post-prison interview with 6ix9ine following his release last year."

Peep the trailer below.
