Tekashi 6ix9ine is celebrating his birthday by releasing “GOOBA,” his first single since his early release from prison. Back in April, the controversial rapper, real name Daniel Hernandez, was granted a compassionate early release from his two-year prison sentence due to his asthma making him particularly susceptible to catching coronavirus (COVID-19). He still has to serve out the remaining time on house arrest, but he seems to be making the most of it with the new technicolor “GOOBA” music video.

The track and accompanying visual all have the hallmark traits that made 6ix9ine such a polarizing figure. He’s drenched in rainbow colors, disregarding social distancing orders to be surrounded by at least six video vixens, and there’s even a Dalmatian puppy thrown in there for good measure. The video was shot in his own back yard after a judge granted him special permission to do so. He decries those who are always clout-chasing and then establishes, “B*tch I am clout.” And of course, he follows that up with the rhetorical, “Are you dumb, stupid, or dumb, huh?”

The release also comes after his reported $10 million USD record deal with 10k Projects, which he signed while awaiting sentencing on racketeering and firearms charges back in October. Where the self-proclaimed King of New York goes from here is unknown as he’s in completely uncharted territory. During his highly publicized trial, the rapper provided law enforcement with a wealth of information on his fellow Nine Trey Bloods members ultimately leading to the guilty verdicts of multiple former associates. 6ix9ine even testified that Cardi B and rapper Jim Jones were members of the Bloods. Rappers like YG (and his “Stop Snitchin” track) have responded in kind, with disses aimed at Tekashi for divulging information.
