Fivio Foreign also posted an Instagram Story about having five songs in Apple Music’s Top 25: New York City chart, using the statistics to call out 6ix9ine over his antics.
“And this is why I don’t respond to these lame ass weirdo clout chase’n n-ggas,” he wrote. “You could buy youtube views but you cant buy chart positions. Everything this kid has ever said has been lie and everything else is gon be a lie. I apologize to the real 1’s out there thats mad I’m entertaining this shit but fans must kno. What’s really goin on in NY.”
6ix9ine recently returned to social media and questioned Fivio Foreign’s “King of New York” claims, targeting his predicted album sales and the amount of features on his album, while calling him Nicki Minaj and Kanye West’s “sidekick.”
Fivio initially responded, “If numbers and things like that, the term King of New York, you know who would be the King of New York? Hov be the King of New York. N-ggas like Biggie Smalls would be the King of New York. But guess what? Numbers don’t determine the King of New York. […] The king don’t have to fuck with you in order for you to be king.”
B.I.B.L.E. features the likes of Kanye West, Quavo, A$AP Rocky, Alicia Keys, Lil Yachty, DJ Khaled, Polo G, Lil Tjay, Ne-Yo, Yung Bleu, Vory and Blueface — stream the album below.
