6ix9ine’s debut album, DAY69


Jason Reyes, Staff Writer

6ix9ine released DAY69, his debut album, on Feb. 23. This album features Tory Lanez, Young Thug, Fetty Wap, and A Boogie Wit’ Da Hoodie. Tekashi 6ix9ine was explosive from the moment you press play on this mixtape. Even with all the straining he puts on his throat, it is refreshing to hear a dude show passion about some of his favorite hobbies. After listening to his first few tracks, his content starts to feel repetitive, as eventually it will begin to feel like he’s using the same flows and lines.  I guess for some (especially those having a bad day), they would like to hear this type of anger in bulk, but for the normal, oh no. The album surprised a lot people, mainly because of 6ix9ine being such a controversial artist.

He received a lot of hate and backlash for being apart of a new wave of rap music, which is extremely over-hated by a lot of people because they think the music is “dumb” or “trash” due to the repetitive lyrics.  A pro of this album was the good production, which delivered when 6ix9ine did not. After his tracks such as GUMMO and BILLY which many students have been bumping to, I found DAY 69 to be exactly what I expected it to be.

Though the project contains below average lyrics and repetitive sounds, 6ix9ine still ties together everything in the end to make a decent album. I found this album as a guilty pleasure.
