Tekashi 6ix9ine Banned Barclays Center, Loses $4.9 Million Deal After Shooting
Tekashi 6ix9ine will no longer be able to perform in his hometown arena, as TMZ reports the rapper is officially banned from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
The ban comes on the heels of Saturday night’s shooting inside the arena after the “Blicky Got The Stiffy” rapper got into it with Brooklyn’s own, Casanova.
After the incident, officials linked 6ix9ine’s crew to the shooting, in addition to the shooting that took place just hours before. In fact, the rapper’s manager, Tr3yway, has been named a person of interest in both shootings, and now his client will suffer the consequences.
According to TMZ, 6ix9ine was scheduled to perform at Brooklyn’s Soulfrito Fest 2018 at the Barclays prior to Saturday’s incident, but now, sources say he has been cut due to the ongoing investigation.
Tunes Audio also announced that they no longer wants to do business with the Rapper following the incident.
According to a representative, the company says, “at this time it is in the best interest of our company to move on. We wish him well, he’s a great artist.”
The original deal was for 6ix9ine to promote Tune Audio’s latest Red, $249 headphones in exchange for a $4.9 million.
