Tekashi 6IX9INE who also calls himself the new King of New York has left his eager fans swirling after he took to social media and posted a photo captioned, “Ima quit rapping this year. I accomplished everything I dreamed of in 5 months.”

Standing back and looking at 6IX9INE’s five month old career, you must admit it has been an illustrious five months. Outside of all the issues surrounding Tekashi, he has already been certified Platinum by the RIAA, he’s also been certified Gold, he’s made the Billboard charts many times and his debut album debut at #4 on the Billboard 200 album charts. Also, the majority of his successes were accomplished mainly whilst being an independent artist.

Taking an even closer look at his five month career, Tekashi 6IX9INE rose to prominence on social media due to a July 2017 Instagram post that went viral on both Reddit and Twitter, where his rainbow-dyed hair, his rainbow grill, and multiple versions of the number 69 tattooed on his body turned him into an internet meme. Capitalizing on the internet craze, his debut single “Gummo” which was released on November 10, 2017, peaked at number 12 on the US Billboard Hot 100. It was certified platinum by the RIAA on March 5, 2018. His next single “Kooda” debuted at 61 on the Hot 100 the week of December 23, 2017. On January 14, 2018, he released his third single “Keke” with Fetty Wap and A Boogie wit da Hoodie. Afterwards, he released his debut mixtape, Day69 on February 23, 2018, and debuted at number four on the Billboard 200 album chart with 55,000 units sold in its first week. According to Jon Caramanica of The New York Times, the tape was an outgrowth of the “SoundCloud rap explosion.”

Its pretty much assured that fans don’t believe that Tekashi 6IX9INE is going to retire, at best. At worst, its assured that they hope he doesn’t retire. With so much money in the music game today and the fan base that Tekashi and his team have been able to build, its unlikely that he will retire, because if nothing else, the music itself will always call him back into the studio. As he does have a talent and a demand for it exists.

Check out his somewhat cryptic post below.
