Yasiin Bey Says Tekashi 6ix9ine Comments Were “Taken Out Of Context”

A couple days ago, AWGE released the third installment their web docuseries AWGE DVD, chronicling behind the scenes moments with A$AP Rocky, the A$AP Mob and AWGE-affiliated artists and friends. At one particular point the video, around the 15 minute mark, there was some footage Yasiin Bey talking pretty wildly about NYC newcomer Tekashi 6ix9ine, saying Tekashi’s “Gummo” video was some the most depressing shit he’s ever seen.

“Why is everyone acting like this new? This is a version the same old shit. This is the most depressing shit I’ve ever seen in my life,” Yasiin Bey said in the clip. However it turns out that clip was taken out context and not necessarily what Yasiin meant.

On late Thursday night, AWGE and Yasiin released a statement explaining that the footage was “leaked” and “taken out context.” Their statement read:

The statement ended with… “STOP CLOUT WARS.LOVE ALL.TRUST FEW.FEAR NONE.PEACE.”

Yasiin Bey Says 6ix9ine's "GUMMO" Is The "Most Depressing" Thing He's Seen

Tekashi 6ix9ine is as polarizing as an artist can get in 2018. Since making waves with his single, “GUMMO,” the rapper has received both praise and hate from many people. Swizz Beatz has praised the young artist in the past and 6ix9ine’s also formed a friendly relationship with 50 Cent. However, not every OG feels the same way. Yasiin Bey, the artist formerly known as Mos Def, recently watched the “GUMMO” video for the first time and he didn’t seem to ecstatic about it,

Earlier this week, the A$AP Mob unleashed the third installment to their AWGE DVD series. There were a lot gems found in there including the announcement that Tyler, The Creator and A$AP Rocky would be joining forces for a joint project under the name “Wang$ap.” However, there was another interesting point in that came around the 15:03 mark. In the clip, Yasiin Bey’s seen reacting to Tekashi 6ix9ine’s breakthrough single, “GUMMO.” Suffice to say, he wasn’t impressed by it in the least.

“Why is everyone acting like this new? This is a version the same old shit,” he said before speaking on M.O.P and how they brought that aggressive energy to the game as well.

“This is the most depressing shit I’ve ever seen in my life.” He added after watching the video.

Clearly, 6ix9ine isn’t Yasiin Bey’s cup tea, but maybe he’d feel differently if he heard “FEFE.”

Peep the clip below.

The first and only Black Star album, Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star, was released back in 1998. Considering that the classic project will be celebrating its 20th anniversary in September this year, the return the duo is all too fitting.
