The disgraced rapper continues to play us all for a fool.

Tekashi 6ix9ine is the perfect pop star for 2020.

As Donald Trump tells Americans to drink bleach and disregard social distancing, the controversial actions of the loudmouth Brooklyn-based rapper seem to all be in line with the beliefs that make up the Twilight Zone existence of 2020.
