Tekashi 6ix9ine channels Drake in the official music video for "Gotti." The rapper also transforms into a woman in the clip.
6ix9ine shared a snippet of the music video on his Instagram account last week. The clip opens with the rainbow-haired singer dipping in the pool with a group of women.
Another scene from the music video shows 6ix9ine standing on the water and staring at a rainbow. A few minutes into the clip, the rapper transforms into a woman. As of late, 6ix9ine has not explained why he decided to transform into someone else in the music video.
In his caption, the rapper thanked Cole Bennett and TrifeDrew for their work on the song's visuals.
6ix9ine, Adrien Broner Online Feud
Other than the music video for "Gotti," 6ix9ine also made headlines after he had gotten involved in a heated exchange with Adrien Broner. The feud all started after Broner had shared a photo of himself with Charlamagne The God on his Instagram account. 6ix9ine commented on the photo and called Charlamagne a clown.
6ix9ine and Charlamagne also had a heated back and forth during the rapper's interview on The Breakfast Club, so his comment on Broner's social media post was most likely directed at Charlamagne.
Broner still fired back at 6ix9ine with a video posted on Instagram trash talking the rapper. A few hours later, 6ix9ine also uploaded a video on his social media account and said he will bet a huge sum of money that Broner will lose against Jessie Vargas during their match.
