While we haven't heard the final product, we all know Tekashi 6ix9ine and Akon re-recorded Akon's 2004 hit "Locked Up" for 6ix9ine's upcoming album.

A lot of folks found Akon's embrace of such a notorious rat odd.  According to Akon, nobody said that to his face.

The 47-year old broke down the reaction to working with 6ix9ine in an interview with DJ Who Kidd.

"I don't recall losing any [rap] friends. If I did, they ain't tell me. This is a business. If our personal relationship is affected by our business, then that ain't no real friendship ... The fans was a little emotional about it.  I want people to really react on it. Let it be a real conversation. I feel like, at the end of the day, his side wasn't really told and it still ain't really told. But I think it's more about people understanding why I made this record in the first place. This record 'Locked Up' was my personal experience and then it just touched a lot of real n*ggas that just happened to be locked up. But if you've ever been locked up, you'll know also that, dude, there's more snitches in jail than there is real n*ggas, right? The jails are, right now, filled with snitches, the people that's cooperating with the police.  There's more snitches in jail than anybody ... Everybody got a story and I don't think that we should be in a position to judge who should tell it."

Do you think any less of Akon for working with 6ix9ine?
