6ix9ine Teases New Music

Given the rapper’s recent high-profile attack, perhaps he felt it was time to make another musical run- and it looks like he’s changing his style.

6ix9ine Teases New Music

After returning to Cuba this week, 6ix9ine seems to be teasing new music and could potentially drop something soon. Moreover, DJ Akademiks shared a video of the rapper seemingly in a Cuban town, surrounded by presumably locals and draped with the Cuban flag (the rapper, real name Daniel Hernandez, is of Mexican and Puerto Rican descent). In the clip, he seems to be recording a music video or promo visual of sorts, as a new song plays and you can see a cameraperson film him upfront. Not only that, but this sounds like a different style to what he typically brings to the table, although not a wholly unique one for him.

Furthermore, it's a Spanish-language cut that is much more somber, melodic, and dramatic than his usual musical fare. As such, many fans are wondering what could be next for the rapper, especially after his viral beatdown in an LA fitness bathroom in Florida. That saw the rainbow-haired MC get the most media attention in a long time, something that many believe he tries to feed off of with his public statements and music. With that in mind, many suspect that he'll take advantage of the news to release new songs and projects, which he hasn't done in a while.

All that being said, Hernandez has more controversies around him at the moment that could prove dangerous. In fact, they have to do a lot with Cuba, where he visited earlier this year. A lot of viral conversation ensued because of him seemingly throwing money from his apartment to huge crowds of local citizens. In addition, clips surfaced of massive conglomerations following him around the streets. Responding to this, the Cuban government temporarily shut down Internet access in the region, which itself drew much controversy. Still, many agreed that, if true, his seemingly helpful actions painted the nation in a poor light for the sake of views.

Despite these controversies, Tekashi seems committed to focusing on his private life and not letting media get in the way. Of course, he'll take advantage of it when he can, but he won't let it change his movement and how he decides to live. Many raised eyebrows at his decision to not bolster security after the attack on him, and it seems he's willing to live with those choices. Regardless, check out the teased song above and return to HNHH for the latest news and updates on 6ix9ine.
