Tekashi69 is a rapper, social media sensation, and convicted felon from the United States. Tekashi69 has a net worth of $5 million as of this writing. In terms of both his work and his personal life, Tekashi is one of the most divisive rappers in the world. In 2015, he pleaded guilty to a felony charge of sexually exploiting a child.
He was detained in 2018 on charges of racketeering, guns, narcotics possession, and murder conspiracy. Tekashi testified against his old gang comrades in exchange for a two-year prison reduction. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, he was released early and placed under house arrest.
Teskashi has been able to amass enormous sums of money within his (so far) limited career. He is said to have signed multiple appearance and contract deals worth tens of millions of dollars. In the next paragraph, we’ll go into Tekashi’s finances in further depth.
Hernandez is bilingual; he sung in Spanish on three singles with Puerto Rican rapper Anuel AA, “Bebe” and “Mala” in 2018, and “Yaya” in 2020. Asthma is a problem for Hernandez.
Hernandez was brought up in a Christian home. In an interview with Angie Martinez, an American radio presenter, he said: “I pray a lot, and I always thank God for the positive things in my life. There’s a neuron in my brain that says, ‘Say thank you to God,’ whenever I’m in a favorable position. Before I blew up, I literally prayed every day while walking my dog Titus for a year and a half—400 days. Every day, I would pray, “God, please change my life…” “God, please change my life; I’m a decent kid,” I would say. Please help me to alter my life. I had a baby; I couldn’t even afford to buy her pampers… please change my life, please change my life—and then ‘Gummo’ arrived, and everything changed. Then I realized, “Damn, God is real.” Because God is real, I knew if I prayed every day, it will work. And things have changed in my life.” Hernandez and Australian pastor Brian Houston did a radio appearance on The Breakfast Club on March 23, 2018. During the interview, the pastor took Hernandez’s hand in his and prayed for him, asking God to guide Hernandez’s decisions and bless his family.
Hernandez and Sara Molina have a daughter, Saraiyah Hernandez (born October 29, 2015), while she was 18 years old (born January 17, 1996). Hernandez and Marlayna M. Hernandez have another daughter, Briella Iris Hernandez (born November 19, 2018).
Hernandez began dating Jade, whose true name is Rachel Watley, a few weeks before he was sentenced to prison at the end of 2018. Hernandez’s face is tattooed on her torso twice.
Hernandez was reportedly admitted to the hospital on October 1, 2020, following an overdose from mixing two Hydroxycut diet pills with a McDonald’s McCafé coffee. He said that after leaving prison, he gained more than 200 pounds, but that using the drug helped him lose 30 pounds since his release. His lawyer refutes the charge of overdosing.
To be honest, Tekashi69’s funds are a little difficult to track month to month. He has unquestionably signed a number of multi-million dollar record and concert deals. He’s also made a lot of money from streaming royalties, thanks to his YouTube channel, which has over 20 million subscribers and over 5 billion video views.
Tekashi’s career, on the other hand, was effectively placed on stop for two years after he was sentenced to prison.
In March of 2022, Tekashi filed petitions with a court claiming that he was having serious financial troubles due to a loss of revenue, principally as a result of his career being put on pause for two years. He said that he didn’t receive any royalties and that he couldn’t make money by travelling.
In particular, he alleged in his filing:
“Right now, I’m having trouble making ends meet. I’m not sure if I’ll ever be able to command the type of advances I was getting before my incarceration, and my career has come to a halt.”
Two former associates filed the records as part of a civil case. He further claimed that if the lawsuit went forward, it would “bankrupt” him.
One month later, Tekashi69 shared the video on Instagram, in which he flaunts several million dollars in cash and at least a million dollars in cars:
