Convicted felon and self-admitted snitch — Tekashi 6ix9ine — took to his Instagram account Monday to blast Billboard, suggesting that Grande and Bieber’s charity single — which features Scooter Braun’s first songwriting credit — was fixed, Your Content has learned.
Hernandez was charged with three counts of the offense after a February 2015 incident in which he had physical contact with a 13-year-old girl and later distributed videos of the incident online as part of a music video.
In his post, Daniel Hernandez — or 6ix9ine — claimed that ‘6 credit cards used to buy 60,000 copies in the last hour’ helped Grande and Bieber’s song ‘Stuck With U’, the proceeds of which go to the First Responders Children’s Foundation.
“I would spend money to beat him too — you hear his music!” an insider close to the sticky situation told Your Content.
“I’d define 6ix9ine as a beat featuring Donnie Thornberry — that’s what his music sounds like.”
“YOU’RE A LIE AND CORRUPT,’ 6ix9ine wrote to Billboard on his Instagram page. “YOU GOT CAUGHT CHEATING AND THE WORLD WILL KNOW.”
Under 6ix9ine’s plea deal, he must obtain his GED, refrain from posting sexually explicit or violent images of women or children to social media, and not commit another crime for two years, among other injunctions. If met, the plea deal will give Hernandez three years’ probation and he will not have to register as a sex offender; if not, Hernandez could face up to three years in prison. In a January 2018 court hearing, it was revealed that Hernandez had failed his GED test, but had his sentencing postponed until April 10, 2018.
Grande was first to hit back to the claims directly saying: “My fans bought the song. JUSTIN’S fans bought the song. OUR fans bought this song (never more than four copies each, AS THE RULES STATE).”
Grande was then backed by Bieber who gave a lengthy response on his Instagram page, defending themselves saying: ‘60,000 units came because we don’t disclose our numbers until end of week. That’s called strategy.’
Scooter Braun — who also shares a songwriting credit in the song — then got involved himself, explaining: “Only domestic streams are counted for a domestic chart. If someone is counting their total they aren’t counting correctly.”
“Two…We never disclose our sales until end of week. That is called strategy and is and always has been our policy. Three… Nielsen and billboard rules state clearly one credit card can only buy max 4 copies.”
“Anything above that the entire amount gets thrown out. They review that. All must be confirmed. Which is was. No one should discredit your amazing fan base with lies.” Braun said.
Braun did note that there was investigation going on, but it was not over their song. He said: “Four…Yes there was an investigation this week but it was into a video that had 6 times the amount of paid bot activity than the normal video. That video was not ours..”
“All I’m saying is I worked super hard to make it out of Brooklyn NY. I speak for the millions of kids who aren’t as fortunate as you. The millions who weren’t fortunate to be on TV,” 6ix9ine quipped back.
“LIFE is REAL when you’re on welfare LIFE is REAL when you grow up with out a father. You don’t what that is like. You say for me to be humble… I don’t think you know what humble is.”
