Tekashi 6ix9ine has become an underground sensation with the release of his “Gummo” record. Tekashi, who has collabed with Trippie Redd, also attributes his success to multi-colored rainbow hair.
Tekashi spoke on the reasoning dying his hair rainbow during an interview with Pvnch of ThisIs50.
“You know what made me do that rainbow? I’m not homophobic or nothing,” Tekashi said. “I actually appreciate gay people. They actually run the industry, basically. The hair doesn’t mean I’m gay or fruity or none of that. I literally, when I did the first rainbow was when we did poles with Trippie, and I literally did every color, and I said I need a new color for this video. He was like, ‘What color you gon do cause you did every color?’ I said, ‘Let’s just do em all at once.’ We just did it all at once, and I just stuck with it, and that s**t was viral.”
