(AllHipHop News) Tekashi69 may love to declare he will not check in with OGs when he arrives in their cities, but that doesn't mean the 21-year-old doesn't show respect to veterans of the game. He sat down with Montreality and discussed his appreciation for rap legends like 2Pac, The Notorious B.I.G., and DMX.
"I f-ck with Pac heavy. Pac's a big inspiration to me. Biggie is a huge inspiration to me," stated 6ix9ine. Later in the interview the Brooklynite added, "DMX - that's a huge inspiration to me. I don't think he f-ck with me though, to be honest with you. I don't think DMX f-ck with me, but I always pay homage. I don't give a f-ck if a n-gga f-ck with me."
6ix9ine also expressed his love for 50 Cent. The "Gummo" performer went on to share his view that New York City rappers don't reach out to each other in the way Atlanta rappers show support for other local artists.
"New York don't work like that. I feel like that sh-t is wack," said Tekashi.
