The story of Tekashi 6ix9ine may not be completely written, but his viral nakedness examination – which we told earlier this year with Infamous: The Tekashi 6ix9ine Story – is still ongoing. The latest look at 6ix9ine’s life was via a new documentary that premieres on Hulu today (November. 16) As 69: The Saga of Danny Hernandez.
Face tats. Gang life. Heaps of cash. Kidnapping. Gunshots. This story has it all, because 6ix9ine’s life contained it all. From his early days as a young man looking to gain fame to the controversy and scandal (and slander) that came out of it, 69: Danny Hernandez’s saga chronicles it all. It also includes a number of sounds close to 6ix9ine’s turbulent high in the industry.
Take a journey through the streets of Brooklyn and the hijackers who watched the 6ix9ine rise, fall, and ultimately make its appearance. Check out the full trailer above, the full summary below, then check out the full documentary on Hulu.
Partial investigative documentary, part realistic gangster thriller, 69: Danny Hernandez’s saga reveals the life of the polarized rap and trolling frenzy Tekashi69. One of the most controversial figures in contemporary pop culture, 69 repeatedly broke the internet with sexy music videos of him and his meatball on social media before testifying against the Brooklyn gangster Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods in a landmark trial. Director Vikram Gandhi (Kumari, Bari) gets up close and personal with neighborhood locals who knew 69 when Danny Hernandez was still – before the diehard character and face tattoo – to chronicle his meteoric rise and fall of fame and investigate the ultimate in addiction to fame in the digital age.
69: The DANNY HERNANDEZ saga directed by Vikram Gandhi. Produced by Vikram Gandhi of the Prophets, Jeremy Walson, Judd Harris, and CEO, produced by Van Toffler, Flores Bauer, and David Gill of Gunpowder & Sky.
