The “Thug” That’s Backing 6ix9ine (Tekashi69) Is Revealed!

After much speculation, the person that's funding Tekashi69 is now known.

(AllHipHop Rumors) 6ix9ine (Tekashi69) is one of the more controversial rappers we have seen in the last few years. We have seen that dude is HEAVY in the streets with gang ties to boot. We have seen this over and over to the point where 6ix9ine (Tekashi69) has popped off at the whole city of Los Angeles. Since, it has been assumed and inferred that there was a singular THUG backing 6ix9ine. Well, that may or may not be true, because the 21-year old rapper has not really been challenged greatly in the streets. There’s that little skirmish in LA and some bottles being thrown, but nothing major.

However, the truth seems to be far less sinister. Look at the dude that’s running the label of both Trippie Redd and 6ix9ine!

Elliot Grainge is his name and he’s already made both rappers successful. He’s not just some dude that came off the streets though, he’s the son of one of the biggest mogul’s in rap. His father is Universal Music Group Chairman & CEO Lucian Grainge. Mic drop.

The plot thickens.
