MIAMI, FL – 6ix9ine has laid low in recent months, but was spotted in Miami on Tuesday evening (January 19) where he and his crew were allegedly involved in a physical confrontation with a haggler.
“Apparently, someone tried to confront #tekashi69 calling him a RAT,” Akademiks captioned an Instagram post with footage from the incident. “Him and his crew knocked out the dude and he made a police report and took back his statements.”

Clips captured at the scene find 6ix9ine with a full beard and no longer sporting his signature rainbow locks. The haggler can be scene going back-and-forth with the Brooklyn rapper’s crew before one of them takes things to the next level and punches the harasser to the ground and then kicks him.
Andy Slater of FoxSports640 originally reported that 6ix9ine was under investigation for a possible “strong-armed robbery,” but quickly backtracked on his statements. He followed-up to explain that 6ix9ine had been cleared of any wrongdoing in the altercation that took place at a Miami paintball center.
“After an investigation, the alleged victim made up most of his story, police sources tell me,” Slater detailed. “The incident, which did involve Tekashi69, took place at a paintball shooting range in Miami. The rapper has been cleared of any wrongdoing.”
The 24-year-old must stay out of trouble with the law as he remains on probation from his racketeering plea deal. 6ix9ine was released from prison to house arrest in April 2020 after less than two years behind bars where he served out the rest of his sentence until regaining his freedom in August 2020.
