Brooklyn rapper 6ix9ine’s meteoric rise has been plagued with legal issues, starting with his guilty plea in a sexual misconduct case involving a minor. Most recently, he was arrested on federal charges of armed robbery, racketeering, and drug trafficking for which he faces up to life in prison. It’s already made a direct impact on 6ix9ine’s career, as his debut album, DUMMY BOY, was initially pushed back before an online leak prompted the rapper to release the project in full.
Here, Rob Markman, Head Of Artist Relations for Genius, sits down with a panel featuring Don Diva CEO/founder Kevin Chiles, Power 105.1 DJ Nyla Symone, and Shade 45 host Gray Rizzy to discuss the charges that 6ix9ine is facing and how his current situation will impact his music career.
