Tekashi 6ix9ine is aiming for the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 with his latest singles, “TROLLZ” ft. Nicki Minaj. The rapper’s done the most in the past month to prove his worth to the rap game. He claims to be the biggest rapper in the game right now, though it seems like he, along with his fan base, are the only ones in agreeance.

Following the release of “TROLLZ,” Tekashi 6ix9ine and Nicki Minaj claimed that they beat out “GOOBA” for the biggest 24-hour debut for a hip-hop video on YouTube. Only a few days later, YouTube issued a statement claiming that it wasn’t true, though they said it was only a few million short of topping the record.
As things began heating up, Meek Mill, Tekashi 6ix9ine’s enemy at this point, took to Twitter where he questioned the saying, “Men lie, women lie, numbers don’t.” Meek didn’t mention any names, though the timing of his statement likely suggests he’s talking about 6ix9ine and Nicki’s video. “Numbers do lie… who made that up?” He tweeted.
A screenshot of the tweet inevitably ended up on Akademiks’ timeline where 6ix9ine, of course, chimed in. “64 speaks,” he commented underneath the post.
With the Billboard Hot 100 list set to be released on Monday, we’ll ultimately find out whether or not 6ix9ine and Nicki Minaj’s “TROLLZ” received the support it needed for the #1 spot.
