For the latest in the two rappers’ year-long back-and-forth, 6ix9ine called Meek to task on the prison reform and related social justice initiatives he stands on. In a post on his Instagram story, the “GOOBA” rapper questioned why Meek isn’t out protesting as the world fights against police brutality and instead just dropping music he can profit from.
“If Kanye who is way more famous then all these rappers is outside protesting,” 6ix9ine began, “why is the wanna be Martin Luther King not but has no problem dropping a song during times like this to capitalize?”
“Imagine having a new born baby come into the world & be pressed about a Mexican with rainbow hair,” 6ix9ine commented on Instagram under a screenshot of Meek’s tweet. Meek’s initial comment at the time was sparked by the announcement of 6ix9ine’s first post-prison Instagram Live.
Since then, Meek vowed to crush the rainbow-haired rapper “for the culture,” though 6ix9ine doesn’t appear to be losing any momentum whatsoever. In fact, just days after Meek’s aforementioned comments, the “GOOBA” video pulled in over 100 million views in less than three days making it the biggest YouTube debut by an American artist to date.
As a follow-up, 6ix9ine has announced his second single will be released next Friday (June 12).
