After being delayed from its original Black Friday release, 6ix9ine unleashes his debut album Dummy Boy.
The 13-track project features double appearances from Nicki Minaj (“FEFE,” “MAMA”) and Kanye West (“MAMA,” “KANGA”). Other guests include Tory Lanez, Bobby Shmurda, Gunna, Lil Baby, and A Boogie wit da Hoodie.
According to DJ Akademiks, Tekashi, who’s been behind bars since Nov. 18 in his federal racketeering case, decided to release the album after it leaked over the weekend. “He says he loves and misses his fans,” writes Akademiks.
Dummy Boy is being released through Tekashi’s label Scumgang Records via Create Music Group. The album was originally set for distribution through Caroline and Capitol Music Group, but the labels reportedly had a disagreement after it leaked online. 69 wanted the music released ASAP, so he turned to Create.
Dummy Boy arrives as the 22-year-old rapper remains in a federal facility on six federal charges, including racketeering and discharging a firearm while committing a crime. He has pled not guilty and is hoping to get out on bail. His trial has been set for Sept. 4.
