Tekashi 6ix9ine drops first song 'Gooba' after getting out of jail, rakes in 15 million views in 6 hours
The rainbow-haired rapper also broke the Instagram Live record that same day garnering over 2 million simultaneous viewers as fans rushed to see him online
Love him or hate him, you just can't ignore the numbers, according to rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine.
A month after the asthmatic rapper gained his Get Out Of Jail Free card thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, he's now come out with a brand-new song called 'Gooba' that various people are calling either straight fire or straight trash, depending on who you talk to.
But it's still earned over 10 million views in just a few hours. Not content with that, Tekashi 6ix9ine has also casually broken a world record on Instagram Live by drawing 2 million viewers on a single live broadcast. It's all in a day's work for the 'Stoopid' rapper.
Ever since a judge let him spend the remainder of his jail sentence under house arrest, Tekashi 6ix9ine has been doing the opposite of what a man in his inglorious position might have done — instead of laying low, he's been living it up.
Let's not forget, the man's a snitch, a stone-cold informant. His prison time was reduced mainly because he decided to cooperate with federal investigators and dished details on his involvement with the Nine Trey Gangsters.
So after being released from jail, everyone was expecting him to fear for his life, but it turns out he's as cocky and brash as ever. He's been trolling people ever since he got out, and even proclaimed his upcoming single with a giant billboard in New York's Times Square.
Tekashi 6ix9ine does not do things by half measures. He's embraced his notoriety and revels in it, almost as if it's a shiny superpower than an undesired trait.
His new song, 'Gooba', just dropped along with an entertaining video that features the rainbow-haired rapper on a technicolor-themed set, accompanied by a bevy of bodacious booty-beauties. It's also got a view count ticker that's currently performing a like a speedometer, with 15 million views in under six hours.
People like Meek Mills aren't fans of the song. but other fans are calling it lit and the most exciting thing they've heard in a long time. As one fan succinctly put it on social media, "6ix9ine no denying this guy is MONEY. 6 hours and 14m views and counting. This guy is winning life right now."
Speaking of view counts, the 24-year-old rapper also broke new ground today when he managed to gain 2 million viewers on his channel after he finally appeared on Instagram Live in grand style, similar to a villainous wrestler making a grand entrance.
Telling his fans to go watch 'Gooba', the rapper also had an interesting point to make: "I'm the biggest artiste in the f**king world. Men lie, women lie, numbers don't. Look at the viewers!" he said, referring to his insane popularity.
It doesn't look like it'll die down anytime soon. Stay tuned for more updates! Things are bound to be more interesting with Tekashi 6ix9ine back in the swing.
