FBI Said 6ix9ine's Life Was in Danger Before Arrest on Racketeering Charges | Everyday Struggle

On Tuesday’s (Nov. 20) episode of #EverydayStruggle, Nadeska, Wayno and DJ Akademiks discuss the legal issues Brooklyn rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine is currently facing. The squad goes in-depth about the bizarre case that has 69 potentially facing life in prison. Ak and Wayno reflect on 6ix9ine’s business decisions, and how his former affiliates tried to backstab the controversial rapper towards the end of his reign. Ak also sheds light with viewers on his personal relationship with 69 and how he tried to warn the rapper of the troubles surrounding him. To close out the show, the trio discusses Tory Lanez’s braggadocios claims of him being one of the best rappers right now.

I used to be out in the streets and got my GED. Learned from a young age, the streets don’t love you. I took what I learned from the streets and now I run my own Pet Care business uptown.

since the beginning of time kids don't listen to adults. we thinks as kids "they ain't cool, they don't know, washed up old people". now I'm 36 and have begun to see what all the older people tried telling me when I was in high school in the late 90s. but they spoke some truth here. i ended up doing 4 years in prison. wish these young kids would listen. but they won't. until u in that cell all alone and your cold, kicking drugs, worried about your girl cheating, needing commissary, hoping for a visit, mail, etc, is when u will truly wake tf up a realize who your real friends are. which is sadly just mom. if you're lucky and don't burn that bridge. peace y'all and I hope somebody young reads this. cause if you took the time to read it then your not lazy or stupid. neither was I. but prison don't discriminate. there's thousands of reasons u can end up there. but I have hope for you.

Babayega Xerxes
Babayega Xerxes:
I've done both county jail and prison time. (no Feds). But I would NEVER EVER wish anyone to have their freedom taken away. That's just wrong anyone in the comments wishing him a life time in prison because he's "a garbage rapper" had serious issues. Just because you don't like someone doesn't mean they deserve to be locked up like that. Let then love their life. It doesn't effect your life in any which a way if he's locked up or not so let the man be. If someone like his manager was plotting to kill him that's different and he might have to get that case but to wish someone to get life in prison so he can be raped or beat up in prison is just a horrible horrible character and it tells a lot about the person who is wishing that evil in another man. If rather wish my enemy death than to wish them life in prison. People need to grow up and stop giving so much bad vibes to this kid. And yes. I said kid because he's just a kid, unlike the other defendants in the case that are 35,37, or 40 years old. This is just a young entertainer that just does nothing but troll people but if you look Kat the videos about him, he does 20x more good stuff for the needy and sick than he does goofing around. But people only see and remember the TMZ shit about him. Because paying the rent for the entire year of s cancer patient child just isn't entertaining enough to be aired on TMZ. But the fact is 69 spent close to a million dollars of his own money to sick kids and needy kids plus the homeless. Don't let that get overshadowed by his clowning that he does because he's just s kid goofing around.

Wayno only one talking sense here. This girl... Her voice was naggy af in this video "WeLl yoU aLwaYs HaVe a ChOIce" head ah. AK was only defending the best he could. If AK stepped outside of the friend zone this convo would've been more productive.

His stupidity and carelessness caught up to him. He made his own choices despite warnings friends and his legal team. He laughed at all the close calls thinking he was untouchable. Jokes on him. I don't feel sorry for a grown man who properly made these horrible choices time and time again.

23:00 isn’t that the whole point of gangster rap, to bring someone as close to the streets without them actually having to go there? “I bring you through the ghetto without ridin’ round” , Jay Z’s Renegade verses is all about that

“He gave it a face”. Spot on, sir! That is “RICO” in a nutshell. You are the figurehead, so, we can, and WILL, pin your ENTIRE crew’s dirt on you. Because without your financing their illicit acts, they wouldn’t have taken place from the outset. Watch for Trump, ironically, being charged with the same statute.
