Who is 6ix9ine's father?
6ix9ine did not meet his father until he was nine years old and apparently knew him very briefly. 6ix9ine, who shares the same name as his father’s, was told by his mother that his father was dead, as revealed by the father himself later. It is believed that 6ix9ine’s father was addicted to heroin which caused a lot of family issues. He was kicked out of the house after he got caught shooting up heroin in the bathroom. He was also jailed for five years for selling drugs.
According to HipHopDX, 6ix9ine’s father last showed up at 6ix9ine’s December 2019 sentencing where he had asked to speak on his behalf, but the judge apparently told him, “It’s way too late to show and speak on his behalf. You squandered that right many years ago.” Tekashi 6ix9ine had also expressed his opinion at the time saying, “I took one glance- I see my biological father. I haven’t seen him since the third grade. I don’t even know if this is a f**kin’ joke, everything I go through.”

Speaking of Tekashi, he has returned to music after getting released from prison early in April 2020 due to Covid-19. The controversial emcee was himself in financial trouble after he was sued for allegedly stiffing his security detail. According to Complex, Metropolitan Patrol revealed that the rapper owes it $75,000 for the service, but said it’s more like $88,000 because of all the legal costs and late fees. Tekashi is best known for his hit singles like ‘Gummo’, ‘Kooda’, ‘Keke’, ‘Gotti’ and ‘Fefe’ among others.
