As you should know by now, 6ix9ine's DUMMY BOY album—featuring Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, and more—was originally set to be released today, Nov. 23. In light of 6ix9ine's arrest by federal authorities on racketeering and firearms charges earlier this week, however, the Powers That Be decided to postpone the album's release "until further notice."
Now, prolific producer Murda Beatz has chimed in on the album's delay with a joke he has to know will have some fans practically on the verge of near-collapse. "I HAVE THE ALBUM SHOULD I.....," Beatz captioned a since-deleted Instagram post, per HotNewHipHop.
Murda Beats co-produced the Nicki Minaj-featuring "FEFE" with Cubeatz, a track that was ultimately made a bonus cut on Minaj's Queen album and was also among the final DUMMY BOY tracklist. In October, Beatz teased another possible 6ix9ine collaboration:
Thursday, TMZ sources claimed 6ix9ine had been transferred to a federal facility known for housing "neutral inmates." While the report noted the unit was routinely used as a location for those who cut deals, 6ix9ine's attorney Lance Lazzaro attributed the move solely to security concerns.
Earlier this year, 6ix9ine avoided jail time in connection with his previous guilty plea of the use of a child in a sexual performance. He was ultimately given probation and not required to register as a sex offender.
