Tekashi 6ix9ine’s first album may have flopped, but rapper King Von is still upset with Akon for teaming up with the rapper for “Locked Up” part deux.
“I’ll never forgive Akon for making that song with that rat ass n*gga. 💔👿 @Akon yo Usain Bolt looking ass,” he tweeted.
Akon has repeatedly defended his decision to work with 6ix9ine.
“I don’t recall losing any [contacts]. If I did, they ain’t tell me,” Akon told DJ Whoo Kid. “This is a business. If our personal relationship is affected by our business, then that ain’t no real friendship.”
He continued, “I feel like, at the end of the day, his side wasn’t really told and it still ain’t really told, but I think it’s more about people understanding why I made this record in the first place. This record, ‘Locked Up,’ was my personal experience and then it just touched a lot of real n*ggas that just happened to be locked up. Everybody got a story and I don’t think that we should be in a position to judge who should tell it.”
