Benny The Butcher Explains 6ix9ine Feature Request Was A Prank.
Last year, Benny claimed 6ix9ine reached out for a feature but he recently explained that some “funny Instagram n*gga” tricked him.
Despite his infamy, Tekashi 6ix9ine has reportedly been ready to shovel in millions since his release from prison. The antagonizing artist has capitalized off of making controversies that are usually launched after he digs underneath someone’s skin with insults and below-the-belt antics. Yet, it has been profitable because the public chases after every story, but when Benny The Butcher revealed in May 2020 that 6ix9ine reached out for a feature, Rap fans were surprised at the request.
Akademiks would later state that 6ix9ine never contacted Benny for a verse, and during a recent interview with Big Facts Podcast, the Buffalo, ny icon explained what happened. “Aight, boom. What’s this n*gga name, man. I forget this n*gga name. I gave this n*gga my number but it had been a joke. it had been a prank,” said Benny. “That wasn’t [6ix9ine]. That sh*t everywhere the f*ckin’ internet. But you recognize what, before I posted that and said anything about it, I sat thereon for like, three days. I’m like, ‘Did this n*gga really hit me?’ I’m like, the audacity of those people. It wasn’t that n*gga. it had been this funny Instagram n*gga.”
“But to be clear, i might haven’t done that sh*t for ten million dollars,” the rapper continued. “Hell nah. i would not have done it. i would not are ready to show my face. All I got is who i’m . Imagine if I’da did that, took that cash , then came in here. How would you check out me?” The hosts argued that a $10 million feature could also be worth brooding about . Still, Benny The Butcher wasn’t moved.
“I cannot be blatantly used,” the rapper added. “I cannot be blatantly used like, ‘We bought this n*gga.’ That what n*ggas would have said. N*ggas would have seen me on the song and said, ‘They bought that n*gga.'” Benny reiterated that he couldn’t show his face around his friends if he would choose the route to collaborate with 6ix9ine.
