Tekashi69, not only took too his Instagram to promote the album through a post, but he also sat down with his fans on IG Live. He touched base on people calling him a “rat” and those in the industry, who said he wouldn’t make it out since he had cooperated with the government.
“You know why people so mad?” he expressed in the live stream. “Because they thought it was over for me. They counted me out. ‘Oh, you ratted, it’s over for you.’ Y’all could never cooperate with the government and come back. Y’all could never do that. I’m a living legend at the age of 24.”
