New York rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine is zzz’ing to the death rumors. The hip-hop artist has come forward to put a swift end to reports claiming he took some fatal gunfire.
Tek went to Instagram Sunday (June 3) and laughed off the gossip about fighting for his life following a shooting.
A few hours ago, Chicago rapper Chief Keef blamed a near-death New York City shooting on his Tek feud.
“Yeah, I’m good,” the 22-year-old said by phone after rushing back home to Los Angeles. Keef, 22, whose given name is Keith Farrelle Cozart, told The Post he’s been feuding with 22-year-old Bushwick-born rival Tekashi 6ix9ine, whose given name is Daniel Hernandez. “It’s just beef between me and the rapper 6ix9ine,” the Chicago-born rapper claimed.

Keef also spoke up on what might have ultimately led up to the confrontation.
Keef told The Post that he’d been confronted by two would-be gunmen before dawn Saturday, as he went upstairs to his room at the W Hotel on Broadway near west 47th Street. “I was just scared a little bit and I didn’t know what to do,” Keef told The Post. “I went upstairs for a couple hours to cool off and I came back [outside]. I didn’t know they were waiting for me.” (Page Six)
Tek made sure to hop on Instagram Saturday with his reaction to Keef’s shooting.
