Tekashi 6ix9ine Continues To Instigate Beef With Chief Keef & Chicago Rappers

Tekashi 6ix9ine isn’t concerned about his well being, apparently.
Tekashi 6ix9ine’s is no stranger when it comes to beef. In fact, it seems as if he thrives off of it. While his feud with Trippie Redd has died down, he’s been beefing with many Chicago rappers, namely Chief Keef and the GBE crew. Over the weekend, Chief Keef was shot at during his stay at The W in Time Square. Thankfully, the shooters missed but many speculated that Tekashi 6ix9ine may have had some sort of involvement in it. The “GUMMO” rapper has completely denied it but it looks like he’s still into trolling the Chicago emcee and his crew.

Tekashi 6ix9ine can be considered more of a troll than a rapper and his latest Instagram post might further prove this. The rapper shared an incredibly short clip on his Instagram saying: “How mad would y’all be if I said I was the new king of Chicago?”

He’s clearly warranting a response from one of the Chicago rappers, whether it’s in person or on Instagram. The rapper caused an uproar after he claimed to be the “King Of New York.” 50 Cent may have co-signed it but there was definitely many others that haven’t been feeling the sentiment.

Earlier today, 6ix9ine was interviewed on TMZ where he spoke about the situation with Chief Keef. He completely denied any sort of involvement in the shooting, although it coincidentally happened after 6ix9ine reignited the feud with Chief Keef.

“I guess Chief Keef, he’s a gangsta rapper. He promotes violence. I mean, I guess he has a lot of beef on these streets. I don’t know who he’s beefing with that’ll hurt him but it’s definitely not me. I’m actually a fan,” he said.
