Earlier this week Teka$hi 69 made it clear that when he comes to a new town he doesn't check in with any the local bosses. It is customary for rappers to do that because it shows respect and it helps keep that rapper safe while he's visiting.
Trick-Trick — who is known to impose "no-fly zones" around his city Detroit — is perhaps the most famous these gatekeepers.
But Trick has no desire to get involved with any 69 drama, as he explained in an Internet video.
Trick went on to say that his no-fly strategy — which targeted rappers are not from the city, who do not support artists from the city or make contributions to the city — has worked.
Since Trick believes rappers from Detroit are now getting their proper respect around the country he's moved his focus to different types community building.
So if 69 comes to Detroit it may be best that he check in. But it doesn't have to be with Trick Trick.
