Now that 6ix9ine has almost finished serving his period of house arrest after getting out of prison, the rapper says he is surprised to still be alive.
The rapper, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, was released from prison in April due to the risk posed by the coronavirus. He then served the rest of his sentence under house arrest.
He’ll soon be a free man, and as XXL reports an Instagram blog questioned whether 6ix9ine would be walking around the streets as soon as he is able to finally remove his ankle tracker.
“Y’all think 6ix9ine gonna be back running the streets when he gets off house arrest or will he move outta America and hide out for the rest of his career?” asked the fan blog.
In response, the rapper said “I’m surprised I didn’t die yet,” before morbidly suggesting that dying might be good for his career.
“It’s not so bad being dead the way ya support the artist after they die #fakelove”.
Since avoiding a 45-to-life prison sentence by working with and helping out the US federal government, 6ix9ine has become more popular than he ever was. He released the hit track ‘Troolz’ featuring Nicki Minaj since leaving prison.
At the start of the month, 6ix9ine released his third single since getting out of prison, a Spanish language track called ‘Yaya’.
He’s not completely out of the woods yet, at least in a legal sense. In June it emerged that tour promoters were set to sue him over a concert he cancelled without notice in 2018.
They alleged that he pocketed most of his appearance fee in advance, before bailing to perform another gig that took place on the same day.
