RAPPER 6ix9ine is known for his aggressive style and distinctive rainbow-colored hair.
He first rose to fame as Tekashi69 and has since amassed a fortune thanks to the success of his music.
What is rapper 6ix9ine’s net worth?
Over the years, 6ix9ine has released two studio albums and worked with several stars, including Nicki Minaj, Tory Lanez, A Boogie wit da Hoodie, Kanye West, Lil Baby, Gunna, and 50 Cent, among others.
Due to the success of his music, he has been able to amass a net worth of $500,000, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Compared to other stars in the industry, 6ix9ine’s fortune is quite small. In March 2022, the rapper, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, sat down with All Hip Hop to talk about his financial situation, and revealed that he is “struggling to make ends meet.”
“Right now, I am struggling to make ends meet. I do not know if I will ever command the kind of advances I was paid before my arrest, and my career stalled,” the rapper said at the time.
6ix9ine previously signed with TenThousand Projects but his record deal with them expired in February 2022. During that time, he would accept large advances.
Now, the money that he does earn goes towards taking care of his family, according to All Hip Hop.
Despite being strapped for cash, he continues posting about a luxurious lifestyle on Instagram to over 21million followers.
At this time, it is unclear when or if 6ix9ine will sign with another record company. It is also unclear when he will release new music.
Does 6ix9ine have kids?
Part of the reason why 6ix9ine’s money is tight is because he has to take care of his children.
The New York native is the father of two kids, daughters Saraiyah and Briella Iris.
He welcomed Saraiyah during a previous relationship with Sara Molina and Briella during a previous relationship with a woman named Marlayna.
6ix9ine’s second child was ultimately kept secret but details of her existence came out during a court hearing after Marlayna wrote a letter to the judge.
“On November 19th 2018 I gave birth to our daughter [redacted] during my induced labor I was alarmed with the information that Daniel had been arrested. More than anything I wanted him to be there as I only had a very caring women from a pregnancy organization by my side,” Marlayna wrote at the time, via Complex.
“Our daughter recently tured 1 years old. He has yet to meet or hold her. He has missed her first holidays, first birthday, and first year of all memories. Prior to his arrest he was distracted by people whose true intentions he was very oblivious of.
“He lacked focus on the important things in life the things and people that gives a man his true purpose. He was too focused on what he thought was making him look ‘cool,'” she added.
“When I first met him in 2017 he was a very humble and charming man and I would never think he would do the wrongful actions he has done.
“I believe in him that as a result of this year that he has thought deeply of his mistakes. As well I hope for him to be able to not miss this next year in our daughter’s life and he fan finally hold her.”
6ix9ine was previously jailed for two years in relation to racketeering charges but was released early and put on house arrest due to Covid-19 concerns, according to TMZ.
