New York rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine really has a major feud going down against Billboard. The chart-tracking organization has reportedly removed his Hot 100 history and hashtag from its website.
According to reports, Tekashi 6ix9ine’s chart history has currently been removed on Billboard’s site. In addition to those details, 6ix9ine’s name isn’t coming up in searches on the site.
The media brand has taken heed to 6ix9ine’s allegations and have allegedly removed all of the rapper’s chart history. Tekashi prided his success on having consecutive records on the Hot 100 charts and often dismissed feuds with other artists who did not accomplish the same feat. (The Source)
A few days ago, Tekashi went to his reliable Instagram page to question how pop star Ariana Grande made an insane five-spot jump on Billboard’s chart projection. He shared industry documents showing how in less than 24 hours, Grande’s “Stuck With U” managed to jump over hits by himself, Megan Thee Stallion, The Weeknd and Doja Cat.
“I’ll be real disappointed if Billboard gets paid for number ones, someone manipulates the charts – I want the whole world to see this. What I’m about to show you is a forecast of the report that every label gets – it was sent yesterday. Number one, Doja Cat, ‘Say So,’ number two, 6ix9ine, ‘GOOBA,’ number three The Weeknd, ‘Blinding Lights,’ number four, Megan Thee Stallion, number five, Ariana Grande, ‘Stuck With U.’ Last night, which is completely illegal, last second, last hour, ‘Stuck With U’ submits 60,000 units out of nowhere. This is the forecast they sent every label. Ariana Grande with ‘Stuck With U’ at 43.7. Jumps 12 points. They went from being fifth place to being first place out of nowhere. And puts ‘GOOBA’ 40 points. So it never jumps to number one.”
Wait, There’s More
6ix9ine also referenced how Billboard had plugged Grande’s new record on its social media pages. Tekashi showed fans a tweet it put out encouraging followers to support her single.
Before You Go
Last Wednesday, Tekashi relied on his Instagram page to initially call out Billboard. 6ix9ine tooted his own horn about “GOOBA” dominating streams and asked the Billboard folks to properly report his stats.
“@billboard We’re watching this very closely. The world is watching very closely, we love you and always supported the charting. On every platform we are dominating by a LANDSLIDE. The numbers are there and to be looked at. WITH NO RADIO WE ARE DOMINATING THE STREAMS. I will hate to believe that people pay for their spins on the radio and making manipulating bundles to manipulate the chart. Again it’s still early Im just making it clear that the world is watching” -Tekashi 6ix9ine’s Instagram
