Tekashi 6ix9ine has enough on his
plate with all the trouble he’s been
in with the law and his former gang.
but that didn’t stop him from
bringing America’s sweetheart,
Tom Hanks, into his latest feud.
In 2018, the rapper was facing
life in prison for racketeering
and firearms charges.
After he cooperated with authorities
and testified against former friends, his
sentence was reduced to just two years.
Due to the global crisis, Tekashi 6ix9ine was released
early in April 2020 under the condition that he serve
the final four months of his sentence under house arrest.
Rather than doing so quietly, he made his
chaotic return to music on May 9 with a
clip of a video for his new song “GOOBA".
It generated some reactions, to say the least.
One person who couldn’t resist weighing
in was Chet Hanks, the outspoken rapper
son of Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson.
“Don’t be fooled by social media. That dude is SCARED S***LESS
but has no choice but to laugh and make light of it cuz he
knows he’s a marked man for the rest of his life either way".
Chet Hanks also called
the colorful rapper a “snitch".
Tekashi 6ix9ine responded
by directing his comment
to Hanks' famous father.
“Wishing his dad a speedy recovery,” he commented
on Instagram after hip-hop media personality DJ
Akademiks posted screenshots of Chet Hanks’ rant.
Tom Hanks has yet to respond.
but we hope he does so by
literally continuing to recover
