Hulu recently released a documentary that recounts rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine’s rise from humble beginnings in Brooklyn, to his meteoric, controversial fame, to the court case that effectively damaged his career. 69: The Saga Of Danny Hernandez was released yesterday. In the documentary, producer Vikram Gandhi digs deep for friends of the rapper as well as the gang affiliated associates he met during his rise to fame. The documentary also explores Tekashi 6ix99ins’s childhood, including the group of artists he befriended and how his stepfather’s murder changed him. Hernandez was 13 when his gang affiliated step father was killed, which some say led to his need for a father figure. Tekashi 6ix9ine’s former girlfriend, Sara Molina, was involved with the making of the documentary, explaining that the man her daughter knew isn’t the same troll the world eventually came to know. She also reveals that the relationship was abusive. Tekashi 6ix9ine has always been controversial, but it was the 2018 RICCO charges that exposed the rapper’s gangster persona to be inauthentic at best. Tekashi 6ix9ine became the FBI”s start witness, snitching on several Nine Tray Blood associates, including Shotti Jordan, who acted at Tekashi 6ix9ine’s manager, and Harv Ellison. Ellison is currently serving more than a 20-year jail sentence while Jordan will serve 15 years. According to Gandhi, Tekashi 6ix9ine’s management declined to be interviewed for the project. However, the producer acknowledges that he may have played into the rapper’s hands by producing the documentary, which could give Tekashi 6ix9ine the clout that he desperately seeks.
