Tekashi 6ix9ine dropped by Fat Joe’s Coca Vision Podcast on Tuesday for a 25-minute conversation about the “Gummo” rapper’s career to this point. On the Tidal podcast, Fat Joe praised the half Mexican, half Puerto Rican rapper’s work thus far expressing his appreciation for a Latino rapper from New York making moves in the music industry.
At the same time, the Terror Squad founder asked about the ongoing beef with fellow New York rapper Casanova and pleaded with Tekashi to control his inner circle.
“I don’t know homie — I don’t know him from a hole in the wall,” 6ix9ine told Fat Joe when asked about his feud with Casanova. “We heard a lot about son doing little kid s**t when we’re not around so we just try to address it.”
This comes after a boiling public feud between the two rappers after rumors that Casanova’s track, “Set Trippin,” may have been directed at Tekashi 6ix9ine. Cass dropped an ice cube in that hot tea but did not dismiss the idea that it could have been directed at the “KeKe” rapper. Instead, he simply said “If the shoe fits.”
Shortly after the track was released, a video surfaced of 6ix9ine affiliated goons confronting Casanova in New York Times Square. There was no physical altercation that night. Where the two hot artists stand at this point is unknown.
In the interview, Fat Joe also explains how he, as a young artist, had similar situations to what Tekashi has been exposed to. The OG Latino rapper explained the legal trouble he could land himself into if he kept on the path he was going.
“I can’t control nothing,” Tekashi responded. “My team, they’re grown men, they do what they want to do.”
Fat Joe’s concern for the artist comes after a new video surfaced following a performance in Minnesota where Tekashi was pressed by concertgoers on Super Bowl weekend. The video released shows a fight ensuing and moments later gun shots are fired. No one was reported injured.
