After his album "Tattle Tales" flopped, Tekashi 6ix9ine took a long break from social media -- but he now says it was because he was overweight and not because he tanked.
"Hey guysss.......... SO the real reason I LEFT Instagram and MUSIC for 6 months is because in September I was the biggest I ever got .. I weighed 204 pounds and I was kinda going through a lot in life and I was just constantly eating and eating......" he wrote, sharing several pics of himself looking extremely round.
"I told myself to put the music to the side and focus on myself and here I am today 60 pounds lighter at 140 ... ALL THIS TO SAY ... - IN LIFE everyone needs a break, in the chaos of everything that is going on in your life, tell yourself "I control what happens in my life" do NOT let anyone tell you that things you want it's not possible, that's FALSE! YOU WANT IT GO GET IT ! OWN THAT SH*T ! I AM AND FOREVER WILL BE THE KING OF NEW YORK CHECK THE F*CKING STATS !!!!!!"
We're not sure which stats he's talking about -- but they can't be album sales...
