Last week, Tekashi 6ix9ine's track "GOOBA", which broke all sorts of YouTube records, was removed briefly removed from YouTube after a copyright claim from Kenyan producer Magix Enga.
According to Enga, his hold was pulled when 6ix9ine offered to pay him money -- money he ultimately didn't accept.
"Some guys called me and they were like, 'You took the song down and we want to pay you and you put the song back as quick as possible ’cause he's Tekashi,'" Magix Enga told RapTV. "And I was like, 'OK. So, how much do you offer?' And the guys, they say they want to offer 100 Gs, which is $100,000 Kenyan money. [Which is about $940 USD.] And I was like...I was 50/50 about that, but I decided to forgive the guy and take the money, but the next day I was like, hm...I need the credit. So, yesterday, I refunded the money."
6ix9ine's team is calling cap on it all.
If "GOOBA" disappears again, you know why.
"We investigated this claim and found that it was fraudulent," 6ix9ine's lawyers told XXL. "No monetary settlement was offered by anyone in our camp."
