Tekashi 6ix9ine made it out of San Antonio with a little help from the police.
Tekashi 6ix9ine is fresh off the release of his debut mixtape Day69 but it wasn't sure that the New York upstart would be in the best condition to celebrate his release. 6ix9ine has been stunting all over Instagram, taunting the numerous gang members that have taken issue with him due to his claims that he does not need to check in with rival gangsters, and his involvement in a 2015 sex crime against a minor. Notably, San Antonio heavy hitters Tango Orejon, one of the most violent gangs in Texas, alleged that if Tekashi made his way to his scheduled performance Thursday night in their city, that bad things would be coming his way.
TMZ reported that, as expected, 6ix9ine performed last night as the venue had ramped up security for his arrival. However, he may not have been as lucky had the Tango Orejon not been arrested on their way to catch him at the airport. Police allegedly recognized one member of the gang, Adam Rodriguez, while they went "child molester hunting" as he eloquently refers to his chase for Tekashi in the video below.
Rodriguez and several other goons were stopped by police and quickly arrested to prevent them from taking action against the Brooklyn rapper. Rodriguez was live on Instagram at the time of the arrest, documenting his journey to the San Antonio airport to catch up with Tek. 6ix9ine made it out of the city safely and the San Antonio goon was booked for making terroristic threats. In all reality, he kind of snitched on himself here. It probably wasn't the best idea to live stream the whole thing.
