As Tekashi 6ix9ine was rocketing to fame in 2017-18, a dark secret from his past threatened to hold him back. The latest episode of the new podcast Infamous: The Tekashi 6ix9ine Story delves deep into that secret, and the ways the rapper tried to cover it up.
One night in early 2015, Daniel Hernandez, a.k.a. Tekashi 6ix9ine, went to Harlem with some people he didn't really know. What happened after that ended up in an arrest, a guilty plea, broken friendships, and controversy. This episode of Infamous, a Spotify original production in partnership with Complex, examines that night and the aftermath. It also features original interviews with the people responsible for bringing Tekashi 6ix9ine into the orbit of the gang that he would eventually turn on: the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.
New episodes of Infamous drop every Tuesday, exclusively on Spotify. If you missed the series debut, you can catch up here. And you can listen to the second episode above.
