On Friday (March 31), 6ix9ine returned to social media for the first time since being assaulted on March 21. The Brooklyn, N.Y. rapper shared a trailer for a music video for a new song called “Bori.” The trailer features footage of 6ix9ine in the hospital following his now-viral pummeling.
In one clip, he is being wheeled into an examination room on a gurney. Elsewhere, he shows off close up shots of the injuries he sustained when he was being beaten up on a bathroom floor. Also mixed in is footage of the rapper hanging out in Cuba, where he’s been since shortly after being discharged from the hospital.
6ix9ine captioned the video: HEY GUYS IM BACK THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO CALLED AND REACHED OUT. I LOVE YOU GUYS FOREAL. NEW MUSIC VIDEO LINK IN MY BIO LIVING LEGEND/LEYENDA VIVA OUT NOW. GO SHARE AND COMMENT #LAFITNESS.”
He also posted a video on his IG account of the attack on him by three men. “First time addressing the situation,” 6ix9ine wrote. “For 2 years I been walking around with no security. Not saying I promote that BUT now you see I really never hid from anything. If you ever crossed my path or ever came to my house (you girls know who you are) ya can tell the world “Danny drives his own cars and be solo” You know how many of you people seen me in real life by myself in gas stations, supermarkets, restaurants, etc.”
“Anyway what happen here was nothing but cowardly,” 6ix9ine continued. “I’m not mad this happened. In the street there’s no rules so I cant say they were wrong. Obviously it wasn’t fair but again the streets has no rules. Just imagine having nothing to do to with a situation and feel obligated to make it your business. (Very weird) I’m happy to be here still. And I want to say I love my fans. Thank you. P.S : I never knew we respected jumping people. When did that ever become a W???”
The rhymer’s return to social media comes a day after police announced they arrested three men in connection with the assault and robbery of Tekashi. Rafael Medina, Jr., Octavious Medina and Anthony Maldonado were arrested by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday evening (March 30). Since the arrest, a report has surfaced that Medina Jr. is a high-ranking member of the Latin Kings gang. The motive for the assault remains unclear.
