On Friday afternoon, the rapper and Instagram star 6ix9ine released a new album, “Gooba “— the first new music he is releasing since April’s federal judge allowed him to finish the remaining months of his two-year sentence for racketeering and other home-containment charges.
The song is classic 6ix9ine: verses full of spitfire bragging about himself and taunts against his detractors. In the music video, Brooklyn’s tattooed rapper — who had a meteoric rise that portrayed himself as a hardened criminal — appeared in candy-colored braids, surrounded by barely clad dancers doused as they twerked in paint.
6ix9ine fired up his Instagram account shortly after the song was released for a livestreamed rant that lasted about 13 minutes and was seen by as many as two million people. 6ix9ine (also known as Tekashi69) has been closely watched by the rap community after escaping a lengthy term — he had faced as much as 37 years — by cooperating with prosecutors against his former Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang mates.
The artist, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, was sentenced to only two years, and released early after his lawyer claimed that the asthma of the artist made him vulnerable to coronavirus while in jail.
The lyrics to “Gooba” — released on the 24th birthday of the rapper — have been mildly defiant. Yet he answered astounding candor allegations in his live video that he was a “rat” for working with authorities. He spoke of attempts at his life and robbery of his property, saying people had tried to kidnap his mother, reacting to barbs that he had betrayed his allegiance to the gang by arguing that they were not loyal to him.
“I snitched; I ratted,” he stated. “But who was I supposed to be loyal to?”
The rapper stood in what appeared to be a tiny bedroom, with a fan on the ceiling and a cleanly made bed behind him. Two women with pastel-colored hair danced next to him at the beginning of the livestream and helped him remove heavy jewellery.
He added: “I want to say thank you to the judge for allowing me to come home to my family.”
Yet 6ix9ine came alive when mocking other rappers, framing his flip as part of a comeback plan to become a collaborating witness.

He, addressing his competition, said, “We can’t beef; there’s no beef — I’m the king, y’all know this.”
“You know why people so mad?” he added. “Because they thought it was over for me. They counted me out. ‘Oh, you ratted, it’s over for you.’ Y’all could never cooperate with the government and come back. Y’all could never do that. I’m a living legend at the age of 24.”
Clearly, it was a professional production. Representatives of the Federal Prison Bureau did not respond immediately to Friday’s query as to whether the making of the video — involving as many as six dancers — had breached the terms of his order of confinement. 6ix9ine had requested permission from the judge to film a photo at his backyard.
