6ix9ine’s Former Booking Agency Deny Claims They Stole Money From Rapper
6ix9ine recently fired his entire staff and put those who he felt did him wrong on blast during an interview on The Breakfast Club including his former booking agency MTA Booking. Now, MTA is firing back, calling the rapper's claims false.
6ix told Charlamagne Tha God, DJ Envy and Angela Yee on Friday (Nov. 16) that he believed he's been tricked out of a $3.6 million deal. MTA has a different story. The company tells TMZ on Saturday (Nov. 17), a $3.6 million deal was never solidified and was only discussed. The company claims they already booked the Dummy Boy rapper 16 shows in the U.S., Mexico and Germany, and they've forwarded him around $860,000 in deposits for the shows.
Tekashi's attorney, Lance Lazzaro isn't convinced. "I would take anything MTA says with a grain of salt," he told the celebrity gossip site. "We have asked [MTA] to show us any contracts with Tekashi69's signature showing they were acting as an agent to book performances on his behalf and they haven't provided us with any to date ... Their cooperation has been very limited."
6ix9ine made the shocking revelation that he was firing his whole team and canceling his tour on Thursday (Nov. 15) via a heated Instagram video. "I fired everybody [...] I don't got no manager. I got no booking agent. I got no PR. I got no publicist. I got nobody on my team. It's just me," he said in the video.
While sitting in with The Breakfast Club he laid out the entire situation from his standpoint, saying he believes MTA duped him out of a lot of money. He also claims the company used nefarious way to get him to cooperate including threatening to harm his mother.
MTA is considering taking legal action against the rapper for bad mouthing them on the radio.
