Tekashi69 is one of the top acts on the underground right now. Kashi doesn’t attribute his artistry to any old school artists. His main influence is rapper who is about his same age – RondoNumbaNine.
“You know what’s crazy? The person who made me start rapping was RondoNumbaNine,” Tekashi69 told DJ Whoo Kid during a sit-down interview. “I swear to G-d. You know it’s crazy because people say RondoNumbaNine is fresh. He new. I didn’t know s**t about rap.”
