Almost immediately, social media has unloaded some hard-hitting memes about the collaboration. While some supported the record, most folks trolled them for their tune.
Wait, There’s More
In mid-May 2020, Tekashi and Akon had plans to battle each other on social media.
Before You Go
Recently, Akon shared some major support for 6ix9ine. The rap veteran blamed Tek’s mentors for not properly preparing him for dealing with law enforcement and federal prosecutors.
“Nah, Tekashi, that’s my little man, yo. It’s funny because, this is the thing, he’s young, bro. His generation and our generation aren’t the same. We gotta teach them different because you gotta understand when kids get in a situation like that, you gotta look at it like a young OG – he’s surrounded by a bunch of people that didn’t inform him – as to what he’s getting himself into.”
