Meanwhile, Akademiks also sparked the speculations when he hinted that the next song will feature a surprise guest. “This next song gonna be No. 1…wait till they see the surprise,” he wrote in the comments,” he tweeted.
If the collaboration comes out really, it wouldn’t be the first both rappers are teaming up. 6ix9ine and Nicki had previously linked up on “FEFE,” which debuted at N0. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100. Also, they had teamed up on the Kanye West-assisted “MAMA,” both collaborations came off 6ix9ine’s debut album, Dummy Boy.
Despite Tekashi’s controversial personality, Nicki Minaj has been a loyal friend to him. After his arrest in November 2018, she shared her support for the rapper on Instagram.
“Danny, I love you and am praying for you, your Mother, daughter & her Mom during this time,” Nicki wrote.
Nicki equally invited Tekashi to perform their collaboration “FEFE” with her at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards. Although it couldn’t work out. “I wanted him to perform with me at the VMAs,” she said on Queen Radio. “I don’t want anyone to think for a second that I wouldn’t invite him to perform his hit record. I want everyone to know my character. I really fought.”
She has constantly defended 6ix9ine despite his controversial snitching character. “When I know somebody there’s nothing you can tell me about him,” Nicki said. “That’s just how it is.”
