What is the net worth of Tekashi 69? Does 6ix9ine rank as one of the richest rappers currently? Let’s find out.

6ix9ine is arguably one of the most recognisable rappers on the planet.

Besides the colourful hair and aesthetic, there’s the fact that he has “69” tattooed on his face.

There’s certainly no mistaking him.

The 24-year-old rapper – real name Daniel Hernandez – rose to prominence with the release of the 2017 debut single ‘Gummo’ and his 2018 mixtape – Day69 – cemented his status as one of the most singular rising talents in hip-hop with cuts like ‘Kooda’, ‘Keke’ and ‘Gotti’.

On the other hand, those who may not be familiar with his music perhaps associate him with controversy surrounding arrests and his prison sentence which began in 2019.

More recently, TMZ notes that he is being sued by Metropolitan Patrol, a security company that claims it provided protection for him in November 2018 and wasn’t paid.

Taking this into account, let’s consider Tekashi 6ix9ine’s net worth.
