If issues had been simply concerning the music, Tekashi 69 can be one of many hottest up and coming rappers within the sport. The rainbow-haired one can be a shoo-in for the XXL Freshman checklist, and on festivals in all places this summer time. He would undoubtedly be on Scorching 97’s summer time jam stage. It’s not solely concerning the music for Tekashi, nevertheless. Not solely is he coping with a baby intercourse case that’s not fairly closed, he’s been essentially the most controversial artist within the sport. His unabashed flouting of his gang ties has tied him up and away from quite a few alternatives – and taking the stage at Scorching 97 seems to be the newest no-go for Tekashi.
Scorching 97 character Ebro is energetic on Twitter, and principally spilled the beans that Tekashi gained’t be there. He replied to a Tweet about Tekashi acting at Summer time Jam with “wait on it,” then stated his rise was “all web hype.” When one other Tweeter prompt that Scorching 97 can be “on the unsuitable facet of historical past,” Ebro requested if ”you assume state police, FBI & manufacturers wanna stand subsequent to that foolishness?” It’s a good query. Tekashi has conflicts going with New York artist Casanova (who will certainly be at Summer time Jam) in addition to west coast artists YG and Sport, who could also be there. He’s additionally not delicate about his gang affiliation.
It looks like the individuals taking a look at Tekashi’s string of Billboard hits in a vacuum and difficult Ebro’s stance aren’t seeing the big image. Scorching 97 is liable for everybody’s security and doesn’t need to mess up their longstanding relationship with New Jersey’s Metlife Stadium, the place Summer time Jam takes place. Former Scorching 97 worker Scottie Beam famous that safety is all the time “heavy responsibility and very robust” at Summer time Jam to forestall any points.
If Tekashi and his crew had been to point out as much as Summer time Jam there may very well be drama which may finish with somebody being critically damage. It’s price noting that 50 Cent was banned from Summer time Jam for a decade because of the chair-throwing scuffle he was concerned in on the 2004 present, and he’s a much bigger artist than Tekashi could ever be.
