Tekashi69 likes to talk as bold as his rainbow-colored hair and mouth.
He's claimed that he runs New York City and has the power to lock other rappers out of NYC if he wants to. He has also challenged anyone to "test my gangsta."
Podcaster and Brooklynite Doggie Diamonds has confirmed that 69 does have some real-world muscle behind his internet troll personality.

he's not leading them. he play his role in his movie. there are directors that really put it in on the streets though with him.— IG: DoggieDiamonds (@DoggieDiamonds) January 15, 2018
i already said it. it's some real street dudes with him. shit aint fake.— IG: DoggieDiamonds (@DoggieDiamonds) January 15, 2018
69 was rumored to have been roughed up last night during the Yams Day show at the New York Expo Center in The Bronx.
He's pushed back on that, claiming he wasn't touched in the fight.
Are you buying 69 as a legit problem in the New York streets? Maybe it only applies to Brooklyn.
