6ix9ine reportedly has a new home. The controversial Brooklyn rapper is now claiming that he has signed a deal with Birdman’s Cash Money imprint worth an astounding $15 million.
Taking to Instagram, the rising “Gummo” rhymer shared a photo of himself with Baby and Young Thug with the caption: “Just signed to Birdman RICHGANG 🔥🙌🏻 15 million 💰 February 23rd ‼️” Birdman appeared to co-sign the announcement, writing “Woop” in the comments. Meanwhile, Thugger added: “Ur perfect… BTW.”
It is unclear whether the signing is official and the monetary value has not been confirmed. Last month, he announced a similar deal. “Right now I’m signing my life away to illuminati for 7.5 million dollars. Life is awesome,” he wrote under an image of himself seemingly signing a document.
6ix9ine has been making waves with “Gummo,” a street-based song that peaked at No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100. It is currently sitting at No. 18 with an Offset-assisted remix on the way. Recently, the Brooklyn-based rapper shared a snippet of the song on Instagram to promote the Feb. 23 release of his debut album.
Success hasn’t come without controversy. The 21-year-old rapper pled guilty to the use of a child in a sexual performance in 2015, when he was reportedly 18 years old. In December, Jezebel reported that the disturbing incident he pled guilty to involved a 13-year-old child.
