6ix9ine Fires Entire Team, Cancels Tour
6ix9ine is cleaning house.
In the wake of his music video shooting, the “FEFE” rapper has fired his entire team. Taking to Instagram on Thursday (Nov. 15), Tekashi said he no longer has a manager, booking agent, or publicist.
“I fired everybody in my team,” he told his nearly 15 million followers. “I don’t got no manager, no booking agent, no PR, no publicist. I don’t got nobody on my team. It’s just me.”
He has also pulled the plug on his upcoming U.S. tour. He had shows scheduled for Texas, New York, and Florida, but all the dates have been nixed. “I canceled my whole tour. The American dates is not happening. It’s not going down,” he said.
Additionally, he issued a warning to anyone who tries to book him. “If you booking shows, do not book shows unless I say this show is gonna be booked with this person,” he said. “They will steal your money. They’re not me. I’m not signing no fucking contracts. Whoever is booking shows for Tekashi69 is stealing your fuckin’ money.”
He ended the video by plugging his new album Dummy Boy, which drops Nov. 23.
The news follows a shooting on set of 6ix9ine’s music video with Nicki Minaj and Kanye West in Beverly Hills last week. Production was halted after eight bullets were fired on set. Tekashi’s label, Universal Music Group, reportedly incurred a loss of $480,000 as a result of the canceled shoot.
