At this point, whether you like it or not, 6ix9ine is a name — and more unfortunately a face — that cannot be ignored in today’s mainstream music realm. The Brooklyn-based rapper is the exemplar of internet fame gone wrong — being famous more for his internet persona than this actual musical output. With the premature release of “DUMMY BOY,” early due to leaks and 6ix9ine’s recent arrest, music fans wonder how they let the candy-colored content creator get this far.
