6ix9ine — Rapper from the USA
Daniel Hernandez was born on 8 May 1996 in Brooklyn. His mother is from Mexico and his dad is from Puerto Rico. In 2009, Daniel’s dad was killed and the young man had to earn money to keep the family afloat. He did it by selling marijuana. Daniel was expelled from school in 8th grade and never came back to finish his studies.
In 2015, Hernandez served jail time for drug dealing. Then he was arrested for sexually harassing a child. It seemed as if Daniel will end up in jail for a long time but he suddenly stepped off the wrong path and started recording songs. As a pseudonym, Hernandez chose "6ix9ine". But he also used "Tekashi69" and "Tekashi".
In 2017, 6ix9ine made his first step toward fame an uploaded his song “GUMMO” to SoundCloud. The single suddenly became a hit. It was announced to become the first single from the artist’s upcoming mixtape Day69. The song’s producer was Pi'erre Bourne. Shortly, 6ix9ine released a music video, which featured several members of the New York gang Bloods. As on March 2018, the video collected over 150 million views.
