1:14 PM PT — Welp, that was fast. The video Tekashi was filming JUST THIS MORNING is already up out in the ether — as in, it’s up on YouTube mere hours after shooting it.

The song’s called “PUNANI” and it features T69 and a bunch of his on-set buddies cruising around Brooklyn in a crap ton of Lambos and SUVs — flashing cash, showing off hot girls, the usual really. It’s not a bad song either … as for the production value, we’ll let you judge.

Now, if you watch it … you’ll see that the dude and his posse are on the move and kinda all over the city — or at least all around that borough. There’s a part where they’re on the bridge on top of the cars, seemingly driving recklessly … which has caught the attention of NYPD.

Law enforcement sources tell us they’re alarmed at the behavior and could potentially summons him for violating basic traffic laws, but we’re also told … it doesn’t sound like any criminal charges would stick to him from this. Also, dude didn’t need a permit for the way he was filming … which was basically guerrilla-style. So, no harm no foul, really, legally speaking.

Anyway, here’s the first of what we’re sure will be many new videos and songs to come now that the boy is out and about. Be easy out there, 6ix9ine.

Tekashi 6ix9ine is fully free, having just completed house arrest, and he’s already out shooting a music video.

We got this vid of Tekashi out in Brooklyn Sunday, bright and early (7:30 AM) …. alongside some super wild rides.

It’s no surprise … a few security guards were patrolling the area, along with a massive entourage. Security was blocking several streets, stopping drivers from coming through. It’s pretty clear they had permits to shoot the video … otherwise, cops would have shut it down.

The cars are crazy — 2 colorful Lambos, an orange McLaren, a yellow Dodge Charger and a Benz.

Tekashi, who was released from house arrest Saturday, is on 5 years supervised probation. Most people thought he’d go into witness protection, but he’s shunned that, and the music video is evidence … he’s not hiding from anyone.

Watch Tekashi 6ix9ine, Nicki Minaj’s Colorful New ‘Trollz’ Video – Rolling Stone

Tekashi 6ix9ine and Nicki Minaj have teamed up for the new song and video for “Trollz.” The track follows 6ix9ine’s “Gooba,” which is the first song he unveiled a little more than a month after being released from prison early due to coronavirus concerns. The rapper is serving the remainder of his sentence under house arrest and is under federal supervision.

In the colorful new video, the pair address haters head-on in the lyrics. “I know you don’t like me, you wanna fight me/You don’t want no problems at your party? Don’t invite me,” 6ix9ine raps. “I don’t worry ’bout you niggas, please stop talking ’bout me/Always talkin’ bout me ’cause you looking for the clouty.”

“They get nervous when it’s Nicki on the roster,” Minaj raps. “Somebody ushered this nigga into a clinic/My flow’s still sick, I ain’t talkin’ a pandemic/I write my own lyrics, a lot of these bitches gimmicks/They study Nicki style, now all of them want to mimic.”

The pair are donating a portion of the proceeds from sales of the song as well as related merchandise to the Bail Project per Nicki Minaj’s Instagram post. “A portion of the proceeds from #Trollz including merch items, will be going directly to The Bail Project Inc. [@bailproject],” the rapper wrote. “The fund provides free bail assistance to low-income individuals who can’t afford to pay bail while awaiting their trial. We want to protect and support the thousands of brave people working on the front lines of social justice, using their voices to demand AN END to the targeting and killing of Black Americans by the police. #BlackLivesMatter

6ix9ine’s “Gooba” debuted at Number Two on Rolling Stone‘s Top 100 Song’s Chart in late May. Meanwhile, Minaj scored her first Number One on the Billboard Hot 100 in May with her feature on the remix of Doja Cat’s “Say So.”

Tekashi 6ix9ine Shares “GOOBA,” First New Song Since Prison Release – Pitchfork

Tekashi 6ix9ine has released his first new song following his release from prison last month. It’s called “GOOBA.” That’s it below. The track includes references to COVID-19 (“Basic, been hot, way before coronavirus”) and 6ix9ine’s cooperation with federal prosecutors and testimony (“Tell me how I ratted, came home to a big bag”).

In December 2019, 6ix9ine was sentenced to 24 months in prison with five years of supervised release on federal racketeering and firearms charges. His release date was set for August 2, 2020, but, due the rapid spread of COVID-19, 6ix9ine received an early release in April. The rapper is serving remainder of his term from home confinement, under government surveillance.

6ix9ine was arrested on the federal charges back in November 2018, shortly after he avoided prison time for charges stemming from his 2015 arrest for the use of a child in a sexual performance. He initially pled not guilty to the federal charges before changing his plea and agreeing to cooperate with federal prosecutors. He testified for several days in September 2019, which contributed to convictions for alleged affiliates Anthony “Harv” Ellison and Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack.

Tekashi 6ix9ine has released two projects: Day69 and DUMMY BOY, which was released shortly after the rapper’s arrest on the federal racketeering and firearms charges.
