NLE Choppa wants his new single “Shotta Flow 5” to get more support than anything Tekashi 6ix9ine’s doing. The 17-year-old rapper called on fans to back the fifth entry in his “Shotta Flow” series via Twitter on Friday (June 12).
“I better get mo love than a Rat I know that #NLE,” he wrote. “SHOTTA FLOW 5.”

Unsurprisingly, Choppa’s jab caught the attention of 6ix9ine. The controversial artist dismissed Choppa as a poor man’s version of YoungBoy Never Broke Again.
“This bum is a wanna be nba young boy,” 6ix9ine opined via Instagram.
Choppa’s “Shotta Flow 5” hit digital streaming platforms at midnight and was followed up with a video directed by Cole Bennett. As of Friday afternoon, the visuals have more than 820,000 views on YouTube. An audio upload of the song has surpassed 640,000 views.
Barring a dramatic increase in interest, Choppa’s video won’t be coming close to racking up the same numbers as 6ix9ine’s latest visuals. Following its midnight release, 6ix9ine’s “TROLLZ” video attained 29 million views as of Friday afternoon. The Nicki Minaj-assisted song also hit No. 1 on YouTube’s trending section.
Although many have been skeptical about the validly of 6ix9ine’s YouTube streaming numbers.
56 million views on YouTube and it couldn’t do 3 million streams on Spotify. Feels like the jig is officially up https://t.co/522Z5gRL2e
