6ix9ine Will Face Lawsuit If He Doesn’t Pay $500,000 for Canceled Show
6ix9ine is facing more legal trouble. Back in October, the rapper canceled a Washington, D.C. performance 35 minutes before he was set to hit the Echostage for the show, which was an unofficial event for Howard University's homecoming.
Earlier today (Dec. 3), TMZ reported that the Dummy Boy rapper is being threatened with a lawsuit if he doesn't pay $500,000 to Hits Before Fame & DMV Events for canceling on the event.
According to the celebrity news site, the event promoters say they're owed $58,470, which was paid to 6ix9ine prior to the event. In addition to that $58,470, the event promoters want to be reimbursed for the loss of ticket sales, rental expenses, marketing expenses and more. On the night of the event, which over 400 people were waiting to see, 6ix9ine performed at Power 105.1's 2018 Powerhouse instead.
News of this potential lawsuit arrives shortly after 6ix's legal troubles regarding his racketeering and firearms case. The 22-year-old rapper is currently facing 32 years to life in prison after getting arrested on Nov. 18. 6ix9ine has pleaded not guilty to these charges. His trial is set to start on Sept. 4, 2019.
On a positive note, Tekashi's troubles hasn't affected his music. His Dummy Boy album, which released on Nov. 27, has climbed to the No. 2 spot on the Billboard 200 chart. The 13-track LP features guest appearances from Kanye West, Lil Baby, Tory Lanez, "Fefe" collaborator Nicki Minaj, Guna and more.
XXL has reached out to 6ix9ine's lawyer for comment.
