Blueface is sticking to the street code.
The bizarre story that is the rise and fall of Tekashi 6ix9ine has had everyone in hip-hop culture weighing in on the topics of street code and snitching. The New York rapper’s cooperation in a federal racketeering case took many twists and turns, which may ultimately lead him to freedom by the end of 2019 and possibly more musical success. On Thursday, it was reported that 6ix9ine signed a $10 million record deal that he can cash in on once he’s released from prison.
“F**k 6ix9ine. If he come to Cali I’ ma have my mans’ right here lay him down,” the “Thotiana” rapper said half-jokingly. When asked how he felt hearing Tekashi signed a new deal, Blueface said he wouldn’t be surprised if it came to fruition.
“It’ll be a statement. We’ll see if it lasts. I don’t think it will but, you never know in 2019.” The LA native agreed that the deal might encourage other potential rappers to go down the same controversial path that Tekashi did. “Yeah, he started that wave where you just get on the internet and say whatever the f*ck to get a reaction. He started that wave. That’s what got him hot, I guess.”
Blueface went on to say that Tekashi isn’t welcome back in LA and that he doesn’t get a pass from the streets, even if the label gives him one. “Them white people don’t care. They don’t give a damn if he snitched, they don’t live by that. So the labels, that’s cool for them. That’s more publicity for them,” he said. “We can’t rock with it man. Anybody in the streets rocking with it, you not really in the streets.”
Later Thursday evening, Blueface dropped his album cover and tracklist for his next project titled “Find the Beat,” claiming that it will be “album of the year.” The tracklist included features from Gunna, DaBaby, Jeremih. YBN Namir and more. The cover art took on a clever theme of “The Wizard of Oz,” where Blueface is dressed as the tin man, and “The Beat” looked like emerald city. Check out the artwork below.
