The legend of the bizarre naming convention continues. Six9ine is back with another song and a music video titled “GINÉ.” And this title is just an advertisement for GINÉ Energy, an energy drink company. There might be a story behind this sponsorship.
American rapper Daniel Hernandez, AKA 6ix9ine and formerly as Tekashi69, made his musical comeback with his first release in a year-and-a-half. His last track was titled “ZAZA,” and was released in February 2021. He might have the right reasons for the hiatus – having to battle his legal wars, and in March 2022, citing that the rapper was struggling to make ends meet.
Six9ine revealed in a recent court hearing; “I did receive large advances under the recording artist and merchandising agreements prior to my arrest. However, I do not receive any royalties under those agreements either since my royalty accounts remain unrecouped.” He also added “Right now, I am struggling to make ends meet. I do not know if I will ever command the kind of advances I was paid before my arrest, and my career stalled. “
So, a sponsorship for his latest song and music video makes sense. “GINÉ” music video did trend at #1 on YouTube upon release and accumulated over 7 million views in a little over 24 hours.

Six9ine’s music videos contain the same script. Some voluptuous women in bikinis flaunt their curves while Six9ine dresses up in flashy clothes and performs his aggressive lyrics. However, the “GINÉ” music video lacks a little spark compared to his previous videos such as “TUTU,” “GOOBA” or “TROLLZ” with Nicki Minaj. Let’s see if his new song brings in some traction for the rapper.
In the lyrics of “GINÉ,” the rapper has not lost his ‘king of the streets’ attitude. He openly claims that he is still the baddest gangster on the streets.
I shot at all y’all rappers, real life, no cap
The feds charged me for that, a whole f*ckin’ case
This is not fiction. On January 23, 2019, Tekashi confessed in court to his involvement in the 2018 shooting of rapper Chief Keef during his stay in New York. For both rappers’ fortune, the shooter missed his mark, leaving Chief Keef unharmed.
Your man got shot, you made a diss track
Go get a gun and get some get back
In these lines, Six9ine might be talking about rapper Lil Durk who was involved in a home-invasion shootout in the rapper’s home in Atlanta.
Also, at the 1-minute 25-second timestamp of the music video, Six9ine adds a ‘Slide 4 Von’ screen, seemingly continuing his mockery of the late rapper King Von. The duo had an industry beef for years. Both Lil Durk and King Von were friends but Six9ine claims that Lil Durk never stood up for his friend’s death.
