Tekashi 6ix9ine’s homeless father has been going through a hard time in life. 60-year-old Danny Hernandez Sr. is hoping for a little financial help from his famous son but the “Gooba” rapper says look elsewhere, Page Six is reporting.
Hernandez Sr. is reportedly battling homelessness and drug addiction but the controversial struggle rapper turned government snitch says that his estranged father abandoned him when he was young and that they have no relationship, 6ix9ine revealed to DJ Akademiks.
“Everybody knows I was abandoned at birth,” he shared. “Everybody knows that my biological father abandoned me at birth.”
Page Six reports that 6ix9ine’s father, who shares the rapper’s government name, has been living in a shelter for last two years.
“He doesn’t know that I’m in the shelter,” Hernandez Sr. said in a video obtained by Page Six. “Now he’s going to know I’ve been here for, what, two years already?”
“You think he’d come hook me up with something,” he added pleading for a hand out from his millionaire son. “He’s been giving money to other people … He gives money to everybody. ‘Here, here, here.’”
But 6ix9ine isn’t having it.
“Right now, he’s in a shelter smoking crack,” 6ix9ine told Akademiks. “The story of me not giving money to a crackhead who abandoned me at birth is getting more publicity than the positive things. Why? Because it’s a trend to hate me.”
