New York rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine has more problems on his hands. New reports claim the rap rookie is on the verge of having a $500,000 lawsuit fired his way.
According to reports, Tek is accused of going ghost on a Washington, DC concert back in October.
TMZ’s learned Tekashi’s being threatened with a lawsuit if he doesn’t cough up $500k to Hits Before Fame & DMV Events … the promoters who fired off legal letters to Tekashi’s team claiming that’s how much they’re owed after 69 bailed on one of their concerts. TMZ broke the story … Tekashi was scheduled to perform during Howard University Homecoming weekend in October but the rapper angered thousands of fans when he bailed 35 minutes before doors opened at Echostage in D.C. … forcing organizers to turn away about 400 people waiting in line.

Last week, reports emerged about a wiretap transcript revealing Tek’s former affiliates possibly plotting on his death.
The feds wiretapped Jamel Jones — gang name, Mel Murda — a former member of 6ix9ine’s inner circle, who is now behind bars. During the convo, Jones says, “[Tekashi] is trying to dry snitch at the same time, homie. But he keep saying, f*** Treway, f*** that n****, Treyway. Ain’t no n****, Treway. F*** Treway.” Tekashi’s former manager Kifano Jordan, aka Shotti, responds with laughter and says, “Imma feed him though.” (TMZ)
The main issues appeared to stem from Tek wanting to distance himself from his entourage.
Tekashi’s former crew members were also recorded saying how Tekashi tried to separate himself from the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods after firing his entire staff. The feds recorded an unnamed crew member saying, “That’s cool. Now he gotta get violated.” Jones replied, “Yeah, super violated. Super duper. Ain’t no much he could really do unless he run around with 100 armed securities all day.” (TMZ)
Recently, New York rapper French Montana weighed-in on 6ix9ine’s legal troubles.
“First of all, you can’t say you’re the King of New York while JAY-Z’s still alive. I’m not saying you said it, I’m saying you can never say you’re the King of New York while JAY-Z’s still alive. Let’s get to Nas. Look at Nas. But I feel like where he’s at, he reminds me of me and Max B. That Coke Wave days. Max got 75 years in jail. You know anybody in life that got 75 years in jail? Exactly – one thing about Max and me too when we were doing the Coke Wave DVDs, when Max was doing it while people loved him. Max was fighting with Jim because whatever situation they had, a contract – but me, just being, what would you do for your guy? You stand by him, right? So Max B was fighting for his freedom, whatever him and Jim Jones had going on. So people understood, that’s what he was telling people what was going on – in this one [with 6ix9ine], you don’t even know what he’s fighting for. And I love 6ix9ine, shout-out to his family – Fat Joe was telling him. He was giving me the same messages. Fat Joe was the one who walked me into Funkmaster Flex. … I had to learn.” (Bootleg Kev)
