6ix9ine’s Early Life
Daniel Hernandez was born on May 8, 1996, in Bushwick, Brooklyn, New York, and went by the name Tekashi69. His parents hail from different countries; his mother is Mexican, and his father is Puerto Rican. It was not until he was nine years old that he finally got to meet his father. Until then, he was under the impression that his father had passed away.
Daniel Sr. was a heroin addict who spent his time behind bars. Later on, his father would assert that the mother’s relatives hindered him from seeing his son, even going so far as to rip up Daniel Sr.’s letters from jail when he was incarcerated.
In 2010, when Daniel was only 14 years old, his stepfather was murdered on the front steps of the family house. This tragedy exacerbated the family’s already difficult financial situation. Daniel was forced to see a therapist to treat his post-traumatic stress disorder (PSD) and his despair after losing his friend.
Around the same time, he began engaging in disruptive behavior at school, ultimately leading to his expulsion in the eighth grade. Daniel started working at a grocery shop as soon as he was done with school to contribute financially to the family.
When Daniel was 16, he started rapping. Daniel was working at a bodega in Brooklyn when the CEO of a record label came in. This was his big break. Peter “Righteous P” Rogers, who worked for that record company, ran a Hikari-Ultra label. Peter told Daniel to start putting out his songs.
His first song, “69,” came out in 2014. He would come out with a few more singles that year. Daniel, who was now going by the name Tekashi 6ix9ine, put out some albums and videos over the next three years, which gave him some underground rap fame.

Tekashi69 has been caught and jailed more than once. In 2015, he admitted that he had used a child in a sexual performance, a crime. He got three years of probation and didn’t have to register as a sexual offender as long as he didn’t post s*xually explicit images online and got his GED.
He failed his GED test in the end. In July 2018, he was arrested. After all, he had a warrant out for him because he was accused of choking someone at a Houston mall.
In 2018, he was arrested for having guns, drugs, and running a gang. He agreed to testify against a group of Nine Trey Bloods gang members to avoid a possible 47-year prison sentence. In September 2019, he spoke in court for several days.
He said that the Nine Trey Bloods Gang let him act like a member as long as he paid for the group’s activities. He also said that after the song “Gummo” came out, he started making an average of $60,000 per month from royalties on YouTube and fees for live shows.
As part of the deal he made with government prosecutors, he said he was guilty in December 2019. Because Tekashi worked with the court, the judge let him serve only 13 months. The people he testified against are now going to prison for life.
On March 22, 2020, he asked to be let out early because a virus called COVID-19 was spreading quickly through the prison system. The government didn’t say anything, so on April 2, he was let go. He was supposed to get out of jail in August 2020.
