It’s a whole lot of gang ish going on this new visual. Tek seems to unite the Bloods and Crips in the video, which is flooded with quick cuts of mobs of people flagged up in red and blue. The new track has a similar vibe to his previous single, “Gummo,” and is all the way turnt. “Niggas running out they mouth but they never pop out/I got the drop on your spot, everybody watch out/All my niggas on 50 so you know we hopped out/Mobbed out, opps out, we gon’ show what we about,” he snaps on the chorus.
Tekashi 6ix9ine’s rise to fame can be credited to content and controversy. His single “Gummo” currently sits at No. 29 on the Billboard Hot 100. The track for “Gummo” was created by Pi’erre Bourne, who initially gave it to Trippie Redd. Trippie ended up passing the instrumental to Tekashi, which caused a rift with Bourne. 69 and Trippie eventually fell out as well, with the “Never Ever Land” rapper claiming he was jumped by Tek’s posse. Tekashi is also at the head of allegations of misconduct with a minor, which he denies, calling them false allegations.
XXL recently chopped it up with the rapper, who spoke of his hit single’s rising success. “God told me [‘Gummo’] was going to pop,” he said. “I made it in L.A. I sweared to God if I didn’t go in the studio when I did and let out my anger, it wasn’t going to be as fire as it is now. It showed us how much of an impact that song had. Everything in that song was real, everything I said.”
