Tekashi 6ix9ine is a controversial figure. His quick rise to fame and massive success is balanced out by a fair amount of criticism. It seems like the New York native is aware of how some people view him. His last post on Instagram hints at the negative perception many people have of the artist.

He uploaded a video to his page that featured him bumping to a beat as seen in many of his other posts. He flashes the new grill he premiered with an unreleased track yesterday and places attention to his other pieces of jewelry, including the infamous "Saw" chain. What sets this post apart is his caption. Rather than declaring himself to be "the hottest n*gga in the game right now," he decides to lean toward self-deprecation.

"Remember y’all made this idiot famous .."


His fans reacted in the comments in a multitude of ways. Some concentrated on the fact that he was bumping to a song by a different artist. Others focused on his hairstyle, deeming it as "girlie." Someone called him the "Mexican version of Young Ma," which may be an insult to either of them. Most of the comments, however, did not focus on the impending trial he awaits. 6ix9ine can face up to three years in prison
