Tekashi 6ix9ine’s Label Lost Half A Million Dollars

Tekashi 6ix9ine has been bragging about his ability to dodge losses for quite some time. 2018 has tested the rainbow-haired rapper’s invincible mindstate though, and his most recent loss came in the form of a shooting. As we reported, Tekashi’s music video set with Kanye West and Nicki Minaj was shot up. According to TMZUniversal Music Group has pulled the plug on the video after the shooting.

Halting production doesn’t come cheap, and canceling the video altogether may have been the best bet. Instead of reinvesting in locations and salaries for the day, Universal Music Group is cutting their losses. In the end, it cost  $480,000 to fund the video. That includes set decorations that were meant to bathe the scene in rainbow lights, salaries, sound effects, and lighting. Other factors may have contributed to the long receipt for the music video shoot, such as security.

Nicki Minaj was not around for the shooting that left bullet holes in a Beverly Hills Mansion window. Tekashi has been beefing with several rappers and gang members on the West Coast for months now. His most volatile beef at the moment appears to be with YG and Slim 400, the latter of which stopped 6ix9ine from entering ComplexCon last week.
