DJ Akademiks, who has become an insider when it comes to the career of 6ix9ine, was the first to report the delay. 6ix9ine’s team confirmed the news via Instagram.
“Due to circumstances beyond our control we have postponed the release of Tekashi 6ix9ine’s ‘DUMMY BOY’ until further notice,” the post reads.
6ix9ine and other alleged members of Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods were arrested on Sunday (November 18). He has been put in Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center and awaits a bail hearing.
The polarizing artist and members of his crew are facing possible life sentences in the RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization) case. The indictment against them lists 17 counts dating back to 2013, alleging crimes such as drug deals, armed robberies and shootings.

Tekashi 6ix9ine is bringing new music to the table for Thanksgiving week. The polarizing rapper has announced plans to drop a new project on November 23.
6ix9ine revealed the release date in an Instagram post featuring a clip of himself alongside producer Scott Storch.

6ix9ine’s untitled project will be his first release since his breakthrough debut DAY69, which dropped in February. The mixtape peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 and was certified gold by the RIAA in May.
In the months following DAY69’s arrival, 6ix9ine has kept busy with collaborations and singles such as the Nicki Minaj-assisted “FEFE.” Most recently, he dropped a track titled “STOOPID” featuring the incarcerated Bobby Shmurda.
