Tekashi 6ix9ine, the rapper currently facing charges with a supposed 32 year prison sentence attached, has caught the attention of YouTube’s biggest star, PewDiePie.
According to PewDiePie, 6ix9ine was supposed to host his popular ‘meme review’ show, although it’s not clear if this was really planned or if the Swede is just ‘meme-ing’ himself.
PewDiePie, real name Felix Kjellberg, even came up with a hilarious theory that 6ix9ine had these charges brought against him just to stop his appearance on meme review.
During a video uploaded on November 23, he doubled down on his theory, saying “that’s right – Tekashi 6ix9ine was supposed to host meme review – and now he goes to jail, for 32 years possibly – coincidence? I don’t think so.”
Kjellberg then went through the various charges which 6ix9ine is facing, before reaching the section which described what his lawyer had offered up for bail.
“Tekashi offered $1.7 million from his bank account and his passport. […] I just thought it was funny, rappers are all about money – barely has $2 million in his account. I’m not saying that’s little, but considering how much he flexes, it’s like, really? That’s all you have in your account?”
Of course this doesn’t necessarily mean that this is the entirety of 6ix9ine’s wealth, but this could potentially be fully exposed if authorities choose to seize his assets or recover proceeds from crime.
PewDiePie also shows a clip of 6ix9ine on The Breakfast Club, where the rapper says he is only scared of two things; God and the FBI – highlighting the irony of this statement only weeks before his arrest.
In closing, the YouTuber says he hopes that 6ix9ine will still one day host meme review, either in 32 years when he is free, or perhaps even from jail – “that would be pretty epic.”
