Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine drops third music video since prison release, an all-Spanish fun romp called 'Yaya'
The controversial rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine continues to do what he does best, forging a path of boisterous entertainment with reckless abandon and impish glee. Ever since the 24-year-old hip-hop star was released from prison earlier this year, he has been determined to keep his larger-than-life public persona up and running, despite the fact that snitching on the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods in return for a reduced sentence might have potentially jeopardized his personal safety in the long run.
Tekashi 6ix9ine doesn't do things by half measures, however, and he has been trolling fans and fellow musicians ever since he reemerged back in the spotlight. Even though he is still confined to house arrest, he has been happy to keep promoting his latest music on giant billboards in his hometown of New York City, while picking fights with everyone from Meek Mill to Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande. His latest offering 'Yaya' is an all-Spanish romp filled with milk and mischief and a bevy of bootylicious dancers. You can check out the music video here:
'Yaya' consists entirely of Spanish lyrics and is accompanied by infectious Latin-inspired Reggaeton rhythms, with the colorful shot-at-home music video perfectly complementing the rainbow-haired rapper's vibrant and cartoonish personality. 6ix9ine had previously teased the release of his new music video on Thursday, July 2, saying on Instagram, "THIS IS THE BEST ONE I DID SO FAR," and in another teaser had said, "WE BREAKING THE INTERNET PARAAAAA MI GENTE LATINAAAAAAAAAAA LATINO AMERICA!!!!"
The lyrics of 'Yaya' talk about his deviant side, with autotuned Spanish lines that translate to: "I needed a girl like that/ To put my hand in her skirt/ It’s obvious that she’s no saint/ Like me, she’s got a taste for evil." Considering Latin music is now dominating the charts all over the United States, Daniel Hernandez aka Tekashi 6ix9ine has done well to tap into his Hispanic heritage - his mother is Mexican while his father is Puerto Rican. The rapper had previously sung in Spanish on two tracks dating back to 2018, with 'Bebe' and 'Mala' both being collaborations with the Latino star Anuel AA. 'Bebe' even debuted at the top on the Hot Latin Songs chart, so it's clear the 'Stoopid' singer wanted to keep his streak going.
'Yaya' is the third new single from the rapper following his release from prison. He dropped 'Gooba' back in May, garnering over 15 million views in just six hours and the video currently has over 418 million views on YouTube. His next track, the aptly named 'Trollz' was a collaboration with the rap queen Nicki Minaj and hit No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100 back in June.
Fans are clearly loving the entertaining new music video, which features 6ix9ine spilling milk out of his mouth, getting cozy with girls on a treadmill and in a bathtub filled with milk, while frolicking with curvy dancers surrounded by a sea of bubbles, confetti and champagne.
One fan said, "😂I ain't got enough milk but Tekashi showers with it..!🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥" Another viewer noted "Dude is trolling all these reggaeton artists that didn’t want to work with him. The wheelchair move 😂😂😂😂👏."
An admirer also said, "People out here calling him a snitch, while he out here having the time of his life. This dude doesn’t even care 😂
Another fan declared, "Didn’t need to know the lyrics the video entertained me enough."
