Now, based on the title of this post, I know what some people may be thinking. However, my review of 6ix9ine‘s Dummy Boy has nothing to do with the quality of the music, son. Frankly, I don’t care about how good or bad the records are, man. In reality, today’s article is all about the messages being perpetrated in the songs, fam. On the real, in light of 6ix9ine’s current legal situation, everything is in bad taste, bruh. All in all, the same subjects that are being glorified on this album are the exact reasons why that dude is in jail, folks.
Look, I’m going to try and keep this short, son. The fact of the matter is, rappers can’t have it both ways, man. They can’t spit nonstop gangsta shit and then say they ain’t do nothing when the Feds come knocking. Ok, yes, rappers have been lying in their rhymes since the beginning of time. However, given 6ix9ine’s current predicament, it’s surreal to hear some of his bars. I mean, a couple of the new records have a Pop feel to them, but there’s still A LOT of violence in his lyrics, fam. Needless to say, it’s wild to listen to these songs while he’s simultaneously claiming his innocence in court.
Listen, if an artist isn’t really about that life, then knock off the goofy shit, bruh. Like, just the other day, 6ix9ine’s lawyer maintained that the rapper only talked about that hood shit for attention. Well, now he’s got the government’s attention, son. Was it worth it? Helllllll fucking no, man! Point blank, ain’t NO Rap buzz worth a 30-year sentence, fam. Real talk, homie should’ve listened to all of the OG’s who tried to school him. Keeping it a buck, judging from the way he was moving, there was never going to be a positive outcome to this scenario, bruh.
In the end, I hope 6ix9ine’s story is a wake-up call for other artists. Ultimately, the streets aren’t something to be trifled with, son. By and by, Dummy Boy encapsulates everything wrong with how 6ix9ine was living, man. At the end of the day, it would’ve been problematic enough if that was really his lifestyle. All I know is, it’s even worse because it was all an image, fam. An image that will most likely take away YEARS of his freedom. *Sigh* The whole thing is a fucking waste, bruh. That is all. LC out.
