Tekashi 6ix9ine‘s glorious return to social media paid him handsomely and then some — but he ain’t keeping all the dough for himself … the dude’s giving back to kids in need.
Sources close to the rapper tell TMZ … the release of his new song, “GOOBA,” as well as the launch of some new merch that he promoted on IG last week has left him with a small fortune on his hands in the amount of about $2 million, which he made in less than a week.
We’re told Tekashi raked in a solid mil in just the last few days alone. Rather than hold on to all the cash, or put it it the bank for a rainy day — our sources say 6ix9ine’s planning to donate 10 percent of his haul to hungry families who are struggling in the pandemic.
Specifically, we’re being told 69 will send $200k to an org called No Kid Hungry, which helps dole out money to families that can’t afford to feed themselves or their little ones — which, as you can imagine, has gotten worse with COVID-19 putting people out of work.
Tekashi’s hoping his donation will help in that cause — and, frankly, it’s a really nice gesture and a nice pendulum swing after his wild, and not so smart, weekend activities.
Here’s hoping it also serves as a sign to come for 6ix9ine in general — give and you get, solid life philosophy.
