(AllHipHop News) Brooklyn, New York has produced some of Hip Hop's most iconic acts. Tekashi 6ix9ine is one of the borough's most recent natives to make waves in the music business.
Nearly 20 years before 6ix9ine arrived on the scene, fellow Brooklynite Mos Def was earning critical praise for his tunes. Mos is now known as Yasiin Bey, and he's still an important figure in the culture.
The A$AP Mob featured Bey in their AWGE DVD (Vol. 3) video. In the scene, the 44-year-old musician/actor is shown the visuals for Tekashi's "GUMMO" single.
"Why is everyone acting like this is new? This is a version of the same old sh-t," said Yasiin. He then mentioned Brooklyn rap duo M.O.P. who created high energy music like "Ante Up" off the 2000 album Warriorz.
"GUMMO" is 6ix9ine's breakout hit. The record peaked at #12 on the Hot 100. The controversial internet sensation just dropped his latest song "Fefe" featuring Nicki Minaj and Murda Beatz.
