Born on May 8, 1996, in Brooklyn, New York, 6ix9ine (Real Name: Daniel Hernandez) is of Puerto Rican descent from his father’s side and Mexican descent from his mother’s side. Growing up in the Bushwick neighborhood, he only attended high school briefly, before being expelled during the eighth grade. Following his father’s murder in 2009, he began working multiple jobs- including selling marijuana, to help his mother.
As far as hobbies go, he listened to a variety of bands in his early teens including A Day to Remember, and Parkway Drive. Before he knew it, he had started to get into rapping himself. With that said, it wasn’t until 2017 that he decided to take the hobby more seriously.
On November 10, 2017, the twenty-something released his debut single, Gummo. His breakthrough hit, it eventually reached as high as number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, however not before garnering his fame and attention on the way.
From there, the rapper released his next single, Kooda on December 23, 2017. His second official release, it performed fairly well, having managed to debut at number 61 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

Though it’s unclear how much the rapper has earned from the above-mentioned efforts, it’s likely that his music career is going in the right direction. In fact, it has already been announced that he will be releasing his debut mixtape on February 23, 2018, though its title has not yet been revealed.
Going by what he’s put forth so far, it’s likely that his presence in the hip-hop community will only continue to grow with time- especially if he manages to dish out a few full-length projects in the next year.
