I just want to thank God for always looking out for me, keeping me out of harm’s way. I want to thank all the supporters who pray for me day in and day out. I’m 10 for 10 on the Billboard. I don’t know how to prove myself anymore. I’m just the hottest artist in the f*cking game. It’s a trend to hate Tekashi 6ix9ine but it makes me so happy because it’s nothing you can tell me. I’m 10 for 10 on the Billboard.”
