6ix9ine Confesses 'Fame & Money Doesn't Mean Anything' To Him As He Kisses Babies In The Dominican Republic

9486

A side of 6ix9ine rarely seen in the public eye emerged over the weekend as he soaked up the sun in the Dominican Republic. While the polarizing rapper typically draws the ire of social media for antagonizing his adversaries and trolling the dead, this time he used Instagram as a confessional of sorts, admitting he was lacking joy in his life.

On Easter Sunday (April 4), 6ix9ine shared a video of himself speaking Spanish to the screaming local fans awaiting his arrival. He then kissed a baby and posed for photographs with a huge smile slapped across his face. He then explained in the caption, “To all my fans I love you … I’m sorry I been away from music. In all reality I’m not happy. The fame and the money doesn’t mean anything to me because it doesn’t bring me joy.

“I say all this because when your chasing your dreams in life remember God comes first. Never lose sight of that. He blesses you in life because he sees the good in your heart and with that blessing you learn to bless others. I will continue my journey to find happiness within myself and find the joy I once had.”

6ix9ine’s reputation in the rap community has been soiled since his 2018 RICO arrest. In exchange for a lighter sentence, the 24-year-old agreed to testify against members of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang as the federal government’s star witness. As a result, Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack and Anthony “Harv” Ellison were sent to prison and 6ix9ine earned the nickname “Snitch9ine.”

Following 6ix9ine’s April 2020 prison release, the Brooklyn native has found some success on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, with his “TROLLZ” collaboration with Nicki Minaj landing in the coveted spot last June. Although the single suffered a historic fall from the chart the next week, it was ultimately certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) in November 2020.

But in between music releases, 6ix9ine relentlessly trolled fellow rappers Meek Mill, Lil Durk, Lil Reese and even the late King Von, which further inflamed their fans. However, 6ix9ine has chilled out over the past month and seems to be reflecting on his journey rather than attempting to incite drama. Of course, only time will tell if that will actually last.
