6ix9ine Says He's Fired His Entire Team and Canceled Tour

The rapper made the announcement via Instagram on Thursday.

6ix9ine has apparently cleaned house.

On Thursday afternoon, the Brooklyn rapper shared on Instagram that he has fired his entire team, just a week before he drops his debut studio album, Dummy Boy.

"I fired everybody [...] I don't got no manager. I got no booking agent. I got no PR. I got no publicist. I got nobody on my team. It's just me," he said.

6ix9ine also said he has canceled the U.S. dates for his tour, which was supposed to kick off tonight in Austin.

The "FEFE" rapper also warned venues and promoters about potential booking scams, insisting he was handling all business directly.

"If you're booking shows, do not book shows unless I say [...] They will steal your money. They're not me. I'm not signing no f*cking contracts. That got nothing to do with me," he said. "Whoever is booking shows for Tekashi69 is stealing your f*cking money [...] If you're not on the phone with me, do not book that show, 'cause it's not me [...] I don't give f*ck who you used to see me with, they're no longer around."

The move comes just a day after we received more information about 6ix9ine's alleged robbery and kidnapping earlier this year. According to TMZ, sources claim the attack was carried out by Anthony Jamel Ellison—6ix9ine's former bodyguard who was fired following a brawl at LAX back in February. Insiders say Ellison orchestrated the kidnapping because he believed 6ix9ine still owed him money; he was recently arrested and indicted on one count of conspiracy to obstruct commerce by robbery, one count of obstructing commerce by robbery, and one count of carrying a firearm to commit a crime.
