Jermaine Durpi has compared 6ix9ine‘s recent gym attack in Los Angeles to that of a bounty hunting scenario.
On Monday (March 27) the legendary producer spoke at length to Page Six about the violent situation and how it seems as if people are gunning for the rainbow-haired rapper more than ever.
“It’s almost like if you see him out, it’s that ‘let’s get him’… type of mentality,” he told the outlet. “It feels like you get rewarded. I feel like it was like a bounty out for that. Like first person that records Tekashi 6ix9ine getting beat up, they are going to get money or something like that.”
He continued: “I don’t like the fact that now people perpetuated for that to happen. I think it’s crazy that people perpetuated it. But the thing is, it actually happened and now people are saying it is fucked up. It feels like we were in one of them old cowboy movies with a person’s picture on the wall. If you see him as a reward. If he was like that’s what people do with their phones. Like it’s a reward, a bounty.”
“People will reach and want to be the first person to do it and attack, to record to be the first to post, and I’m gonna win. But you’re not gonna get nothing. I just feel like the internet has the black and brown people really confused at this point in time.”
The So So Def founder isn’t the only person who’s giving their perspective on the vicious attack against the New York rapper. Jim Jones, who’s had beef with 6ix9ine for years, turned into a dancing machine when he was asked about the gym altercation.
During a brief interview with TMZ on Sunday (March 26), the Dipset rapper pulled out his best Milly Rock dance when he began to answer questions regarding one of his biggest music rivals.
“I don’t know, maybe it was the wrong type of gym,” he said. “I be working out everyday. I’m a grown man. I don’t spend my time doing none of that. I don’t really care about none of that. That holds no merit in my life, you heard? This whole thing played out for people on television and everything. Everybody got they own ideas, but I don’t give a [explosion sound].”
In other news, Dupri and Curren$y have revealed the release date for their upcoming joint projectFor Motivational Use Only.
JD and Spitta are set to drop their collaborative effort on April 4, which is fitting because it falls on Curren$y’s 42nd birthday and is also ATL’s primary area code (404).
