AceShowbiz - Rapper Tekashi69 a.k.a. 6ix9ine has stunned fans by revealing he has fired his entire team of publicists and promoters and cancelled an upcoming U.S. tour.
The heavily tattooed star made the announcement in a video he posted online on Thursday, November 15, urging fans not to book tickets for any shows.
In the Instagram post he suggests members of his now-ex-team were booking shows without his knowledge and stealing money from him.
"Whoever is booking shows for Tekashi69 is stealing your f***ing money," he raged. "If you need shows, I will let people know when I'm booking shows... I've fired everybody... They no longer around."
He finished his video rant with another surprise, revealing he was dropping a new album on 23 November. The release will be titled "Dummy Boy".
The rapper, real name Daniel Hernandez, was scheduled to perform in Austin, Texas on Thursday night, but that concert has been scrapped.
The video post dropped a day after Tekashi69 reached a plea deal for allegedly assaulting a police officer.
He is currently on probation for a sex crime case involving a child in 2015.
