Rapper 6ix9ine Sparks Criticism After Posting Video Flaunting 'Obscene' Wealth

Rapper 6ix9ine has been faced fierce backlash online for being 'extremely obnoxious' in showing off his wealth.

From a former Love Islander preaching about how everyone has 'the same 24 hours in a day', to Kim Kardashian telling women to 'get your f***ing a** up and work', celebrities have found themselves coming under fire for trying to tell others how to live.

Now, the 25-year-old American rapper – real name Daniel Hernandez, formally known as Tekashi69 – has taken to Instagram to count out wads of cash, boast about how he could afford to 'take two years off' and flaunt the expensive way he 'really live[s]'.

Viewers have since called out the rapper.

In the video, 6ix9ine calls himself 'the King of New York', while carrying stacks of cash.

He continues: "Tomorrow, 15 April, listen you know I don't address nothing, I'm never gonna dress nothing. Y'all believe what you wanna believe.

"That's a half a ticket right there. I'm really the type, I'm really the type that could take two years off, because this is really my lifestyle.

"I do not cap, this is really my lifestyle. This is how I really live."

The rapper then comes up close to the camera, showing viewers watches hanging on a diamond-encrusted chain.

Picking up one of the watches, he notes: "We got one house right here."

Showing four more, he calculates their worth as equating to one house per watch, totalling five houses.

However, the one he wears on his wrist he claims could be worth around two houses.

6ix9ine explains to the camera why people 'don't like him', weaving in between the multiple sports cars lying in his driveway.

He opens the front trunk of one car, telling viewers to go 'check net worths' before perching on it and reflecting he has his 'net worth in the trunk', chucking the wads of cash in a pile in front of him, counting up the total amount – $1.3 million – and casually leaving a few stacks behind.

In the caption he states: "YOU DONT LIVE LIKE THIS I OWN EVERYTHING YOU GUYS LEASE‼️ I TOOK OFF RAP 2 YEARS‼️ I COULD DO THAT YALL CANT‼️ THE REAL KING OF NEW YORK‼️"

While 6ix9ine stated people 'don't like him' because of his wealth, viewers of the video were quick to point out they have no issue with his money, but an issue with the way the rapper flaunts it.

"This dude couldn’t try harder to stay relevant. Someone should let him know his attempts will be perceived as weakness and the jewelry he rents to make these video will one be snatched off his chicken neck if he’s seen in public. Too many people with something to prove out there to be acting like this," one Redditer said.

Another wrote: "Never has anyone deserved to get robbed as much as this pathetic excuse for a rapper. Get in the bin."

"This is extremely obnoxious," a third reflected.

Despite the piles of cash and the promotion of his new music video, in court documents seen by Complex, 6ix9ine claimed he was 'struggling to make ends meet' and that his career had 'stalled'.
