The rise and fall of Tekashi 6ix9ine has been fascinating to keep track of. Over the course of one year, we saw the Brooklyn native gain a lot of steam with his aggressive lyrics and gang ties until he finally took the throne as the “King of New York.” That title was deserved too. He was seriously the most popular artist in the city for a while. Then, we all watched him dig his own grave, going down with the rest of his Nine Trey affiliates and subsequently turning from a zero to a hero, and then back to a zero. The only time we’ve seen a photo of the star behind bars came courtesy of his girlfriend Jade, who visited him in the early days of his imprisonment. Yesterday, she returned to his temporary (or possibly permanent) home, letting her fans know and posting a video of herself jamming to his music.
Jade was listening to “TATI” in the car after visiting her boyfriend, who she is still ride-or-die for. Many people questioned why she would get his moniker tattooed on her shoulder at the beginning of their relationship but it turns out that she may actually be in it for the long haul. Jade is still riding for her man while he serves time behind bars and gets clowned on every corner of the internet.
6ix9ine may be at the bottom of his game but he’s got to remember that there’s always somebody out there who’s going through something worse. For example, YNW Melly is facing the death penalty in Florida. That’s as bad as it gets.
