6ix9ine cancels his US tour, ‘fires his staff’ and is releasing a new album next week

He recently settled a plea deal in police officer assault case

Rapper 6ix9ine has said he has cancelled the remaining dates of his US tour and fired his entire staff.

In an Instagram post, which you can watch below, he claims to have sacked his manager, booking agent, and publicist after suggesting members of his team were booking shows without his knowledge and stealing money from him.

He says he was supposed to perform in Austin, Texas tonight (November 15) but the rapper – real name Daniel Hernandez – says he will not be appearing and urges fans not to book tickets for any future concerts.

At the end of the clip he also reveals that his new album ‘Dummy Boy’ will be released on November 23.

The post comes a day after he reached a plea deal for allegedly assaulting a police officer.

Following his arrest in May, the rapper pleaded guilty to a charge of “disorderly conduct”. Hernandez was charged after he illegally parked his car in Brooklyn, New York.

The incident reportedly won’t appear on his criminal record – under the conditions that he stays out of trouble and refrains from speaking about the case on social media.

If these conditions are breached, the rapper could face up to 15 days behind bars.
