Earlier this month, 6ix9ine was met with his biggest legal hurdle so far when he was arrested over racketeering and firearms offenses. The highly controversial rapper, who pleaded guilty to use of a 13-year-old girl in a sexual performance back in 2015, might be facing life in prison over the charges, but he's not letting that get in the way of his career, or his love life.
TMZ reports 6ix9ine bought his girlfriend Jade a $35,000 custom Rolex. He reportedly picked out the watch weeks before his arrest, and customized it with 24 carats worth of VS diamonds and 18k white and rose gold. The present was delivered to her on her 22nd birthday, which she celebrated on Tuesday (Nov. 27) in NYC.
When 6ix9ine's Kanye West-featuring debut studio album was pushed back following his arrest, the rapper signed a distribution deal with Los Angeles indie startup Create Music Group. Dummy Boy finally arrived this week after it was postponed, but when it eventually leaked he took it upon himself to get it out the door officially. The project features appearances from Gunna, Nicki Minaj, Murda Beatz, Scott Storch, and Lil Baby among others.
Documents that surfaced on Wednesday (Nov. 29) suggested that some of the rapper's former associates were planning to shoot him, with federal agents acquiring the information by wiretapping several members of his old team.
