Who was Daniel Hernandez before he took on the artist name of Tekashi 6ix9ine? This answer to this question is explored in a new podcast series presented jointly by Complex and Spotify. The podcast is hosted by veteran NYC radio personality Angie Martinez.
The plot of episode 1 showcases Hernandez as a kid from Brooklyn who eventually gets a deli job before taking on a music career. There is no denying 6ix9ine’s mega-role in snitching during the trial of him and his co-defendants however we also pointed out in a recent article that the most informative government witness during the trial was CEO Kris (legal name: Kristan Kruz) which you can read about here.
