Tekashi 6ix9ine to release new album ‘Tattle Tales’ next week

It marks his first full-length project since being released from prison

Tekashi 6ix9ine has announced a new album called ‘Tattle Tales’ which is due to arrive next week.

It marks the first full-length studio effort from the rapper – real name Daniel Hernandez – since he was released from prison earlier this year, and will be out next Friday (September 4).

Hernandez confirmed the news in a video posted to his official Instagram account earlier today (August 26) – you can watch that clip below.


Following on from the artist’s 2018 debut LP ‘Dummy’, ‘Tattle Tales’ will feature the Nicki Minaj collaboration ‘Trollz’ as well as recent single ‘Gooba’.

Hernandez’s attorney, Lance Lazzaro, recently claimed that the rapper planned to drop a new record this month, saying that “he’s going to be busy”.

Tekashi 6ix9ine was granted an early release from prison in April, after making a request to return home in order to avoid contracting coronavirus. He had been serving a 24-month sentence in New York after pleading guilty to nine charges including conspiracy to murder and armed robbery.

Hernandez was subsequently placed under house arrest for a four-month period, and was released earlier this month (August 2). On that same date, he shared a new track called ‘Punani’ along with an accompanying official video.

“I’M FREE !!” 6ix9ine wrote on Instagram following his release, while also referring to himself as the “KING OF FUCKING NEW YORK”.


In a one-star review, NME described ‘Dummy’ as “one of the most unlistenable rap records of [the] year,” adding that “the production throughout the album is largely uninspired.”
