6ix9ine Denies Paying Kodak Black $1 Million for ‘Shaka Laka’ Feature

On Sept. 16, 6ix9ine sat down for an interview with the True Life Network Podcast. While he spoke at length about his career, 6ix9ine also discussed whether Wack 100 was telling the truth in regard to Kodak Black's expensive feature on his song "Shaka Laka."

"I didn't pay, people have to do their research," 6ix9ine began at the 68-minute mark. "There’s a whole company called Fume, right? There’s whole videos, pictures, bank statements... like literally, there’s videos online of this company saying, 'Listen, this is a collab song for our vapes,' right? They’re holding a check, taking a picture with him. It’s everywhere, right, and they’re like, 'Yo, 6ix9ine paid a million dollars for Kodak'. No, it was their song, right? It was their song, they paid the million dollars."
