Tekashi 6ix9ine Breaks Records Under House Arrest

Daniel Hernandez, alias Tekashi 6ix9ine, is back to work and already breaking records, just days after getting out of jail. The 24-year-old celebrated his birthday on Friday with an IG Live which garnered 2 million live viewers, in defense of his three-day snitch fest against the criminal Nine Trey Bloods gang to the Feds.
He smashed Babyface and Teddy Riley's previous record of 513,000 live viewers, becoming the most viewed personality on IG Live. That is not all, the rainbow-haired rapper also released new music! Dubbed "Gooba", the stint broke YouTube record for the biggest 24-hour debut in hip-hop with 43 million views, edging out Eminem's "Killshot" which premiered at 38 million in 2018.
6ix9ine was released from prison late last month, four months before completing his 2-year sentence, amid coronavirus concerns and his asthma condition. He is, however, serving the rest of his sentence on home confinement.
