Tekashi 69 breaks Instagram record with 2M live stream viewers while releasing the first song after prison and shows off an ankle monitor in music video
Tekashi 69 just broke the record for Instagram Live viewers when he went on an epic rant on Friday after his release from prison last month.
Two million people listened to the 24-year-old rapper (real name Daniel Hernandez) defending his decision to partner with federal authorities in the racketeering case against him and the Nine Trey Bloods gang.
Tekashi is now under house arrest and even showed an ankle monitor in his new video clip for GOOBA, which he also dropped on Friday.

In his live stream, Tekashi danced on Bad Boys while playing with a pair of handcuffs, seemingly poking fun at his confinement.
He also admitted to being a snitch, wondering who to be loyal to and bragging about his money and music, claiming ‘I’m the greatest artist in the world’.
The rainbow-haired artist also dropped his first song since he was imprisoned, along with an appropriately colorful music video for song GOOBA.
It shows many women twerking and Tekashi showing off a huge shark pendant around his neck. His ankle monitor can also be seen on his right leg.

His Instagram rant and music drop came after rapper Meek Mill met the New York rapper and wrote on Twitter: ‘I hope the rat goes live to apologize for the people he told or the victim ….. You are forget it all So quickly a “rat” killed nipsey that he wouldn’t be out on the street!
“That’s all I do one day [sic] because he’s dead … left his baby, mother and child as a coward target! ‘
Meek was referring to Eric Holder, the man accused last year of murdering his friend Nipsey Hussle, who was also reportedly a ‘rat’.

Tekashi 69 was released from prison early last month and is under surveillance.
The first four months he has a GPS monitor and is only allowed to leave the house to seek medical attention or visit his lawyer.
A judge granted his request for release from prison to prevent coronavirus infection.
Snitch: The rapper is back with a bang after being jailed for racketeering. He ended up getting just two years after a plea deal to testify against his fellow members of the Trey Nine Gang
Judicial documents also revealed that he had been released because the judge believed that he was not a threat to society and that he had already served most of his sentence.
Tekashi 69 was convicted of racketeering and sentenced to life imprisonment.
But in February 2019, the rapper reached a plea deal to testify against fellow members of the Trey Nine Gang.

As a result, he was sentenced to only two years’ imprisonment, of which 13 months had already been served, and was released on good conduct in August, but is now a free man after his successful request for parole for the spread of COVID-19.
The rapper appeared in 2017 with his lead single Gummo, which peaked at number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.
He released his first mixtape Day 69 in 2018 and his first studio album Dummy Boy in 2018.
