The producer who had Tekashi 6ix9ine's "Gooba" video removed from Youtube following a copyright claim says that the rapper paid him $940 to remove the claim -- 6ix9ine denies giving the Kenyan producer any coins.

"We investigated this claim and found that it was fraudulent," a statement from 6ix9ine's camp to XXL reads. "No monetary settlement was offered by anyone in our camp."

Magix Enga says he received a call after the video was pulled from the streaming site.

"Some guys called me and they were like, 'You took the song down and we want to pay you and you put the song back as quick as possible 'cause he's Tekashi,.' And I was like, 'OK. So, how much do you offer?' And the guys, they say they want to offer 100 Gs, which is $100,000 Kenyan money," he claims per the outlet." And I was like -- I was 50/50 about that, but I decided to forgive the guy and take the money, but the next day I was like, hm -- I need the credit. So, yesterday, I refunded the money."
