Who Is Tekashi 69
Needs No Formal Introduction
Tekashi 69 is an American Rapper whom needs no formal introduction. He is labelled infamous by today's modern society street code standards. Tekashi 69 did the unthinkable and the unimaginable combined. He told. He actually took the stand in a court of law and pointed out certain individuals, then connected them to crimes against their state in the form of testimony, confessions and handwritten statements. There is a certain narrative currently trending within the hip hop culture that certain individuals, civilians or law abiding citizens, are allowed to aid the state in prosecuting criminals, whereas individuals that participate and profit from the criminal underworld, should not. I do understand that we live in an unfair world, which is why people stand up for themselves. In the case of Tekashi 69 we have to be fair. From the outside looking in, Tekashi 69 did not deserve the charges he received. We all know that deep down inside all technicalities aside, 69 was no crime boss and had no ambitions to be a rider, but rather an opportunist, whom realized that gang culture was trending and used it as an opportunity to exploit the gang lifestyle, in an attempt to sell music and it worked. He even went further in his exploitation by starting what we should all consider to be, harmless entertaining beefs, at the expense of the freedom of active members from within the gang culture. Tekashi 69’s ROI was not just money, fame and major musicl collaborations and features, but also the triggering off of a federal investigation into his activities, his standings and his relationship within the gang culture.
This Should Rule Out Retaliation
Tekashi 69 Assaulted At Local Gym In Miami
video recently surfaced online showing Tekashi 69 being assaulted in the restroom area of a local public gym. The reasoning behind this assault was centered around is participation in the prosecution of certain well known gang members, believed to be closely associated with the nine trey bloods. The individual/s that initiated the assault didn't seem as if they were associated with 69’s now incarcerated co- defendants. This should rule out retaliation. Due to the fact the assailant/s recorded the event and published their content on a variety of social media outlets, it gives off the impression to millions of prospective views that this assault was focused around ridiculing the rapper publicly, and sending a clear message that cooperating with law enforcement agencies in the prosecution of criminals is unacceptable which I agree with and I will tell you why. Everyone has heard of the good old saying that you should clean your own eyes so you can see things clearly before anyone else so for example, if I see someone committing a crime right before my very eyes against someone else, if the plan is not to exercise vigilante justice, I see it fit to look the other way so as to ensure I don't put myself in a situation where I can become a witness. Obstruction of justice can easily land someone in jail for up to one year and half and not testifying or responding to a court ordered subpoena can definitely yield some type of incarceration.There is a lot of conflict going on in the world. If you notice America is only willing to invest our money, time and risk engagement in people, places and things that are of interest or directly affect us. As a people if one of our military service members get caught during combat, we don't expect that service member to give up their company or platoon's location to get a lighter sentence or leniency from torture. We also don't expect them to all of a sudden get released from the enemy's custody go back to their squad leader as if nothing happened and report back to the enemy and we definitely don't anticipate any one of our service members to aid the enemy in the prosecuting of other service members. Overall pretending to be allies with someone with the intent to deliver them in the hands of their enemy in return for mercy from a common enemy seems satanic to me. Witnessing a situation, passing judgement then calling law enforcement agencies without knowing all the facts to me is the wrong path. With the exception of mass shootings, most crimes are committed when nobody is around not just to avoid being seen but to also avoid being engaged but it seems like in todays modern society we would rather record.
How Should 69 Respond
Currently, Tekashi 69 is what I would consider to be a law abiding citizen. Aside from that, a crime was committed against him a public establishment that I feel should be responsible or take some responsibility for the safety and welfare of clients during their visit. Tekashi 69 also has to send a clear message to the community that he has a right to be safe in any public establishment. If he chooses not too then it will continue to happen as we've seen before, he got punch walking through a night club a couple months back. Here are a few of his options. He can take his case in a civil direction and cash in on the assault, the embarrassment and the ruining of his public image if he is still getting paid based on that factor. I'm not sure what his career path he is on these days hopefully someone gives him an interview so we can gain some clarity on his career path.
The hip hop community at this time is not user friendly towards people that cooperate with law enforcement agencies in the persecution of criminals. This may change in the future as it did in the past when famous Rapper Fifty Cent, exposed Rick Ross as a correctional officer of a state prison in the past, with photos, paperwork and awards, in combination with the real Rick Ross being released from prison, claiming that the hip hop Mogul was making money based on his lifestyle and hip hop ignored. We clearly see, Rick Ross is one of the biggest, well respected inspirational figures in the hip hop culture today. In modern hip hop it is becoming more and more common for Rappers to cooperate with law enforcement agencies in return for an immediate release or a lighter sentence as was the case with Gunna and Troy Ave. If Tekashi 69’s motive is to gain reentry whole heatedly in the hip hop community all he has to do is continue doing what he was doing, prior to this incident, which would be the bare minimum on social media, interviews, posts and videos to stay relevant at least until such time the hip hop community become more accepting of Rappers selling and entertaining us with a criminal lifestyle, actives and music and when time comes for accountability it doesn't exist.
