Friday last week saw US rapper 6IX9INE unleash “STOOPID” – his sixth single of 2018 which also features the currently incarcerated Bobby Shmurda who phoned in his verse for the Brooklyn native collaboration.
Known for his braggadocios bars, 6IX9INE has not held back from pulling any punches and taken direct aim at US radio station Hot 97 and storied Beats 1 radio host Ebro Darden.
22 year old 6IX9INE effortlessly fires his trademark blows over the thumping beat with thanks to Memphis based producer Tay Keith and legendary turntablist DJ Lethal.
The track also features a phoned in verse from controversial rapper Bobby Shmurda, the first we have heard from the Brooklyn native since a spate of features in 2016 and squashing rumours of issues between the two artists.
Since the release of “STOOPID” in Australia, it has already accumulated an impressive 7 million streams on Spotify and over 15 million views on YouTube… currently trending at #5 and further cementing his place at the top and proving a huge following across Australia.
Earlier this year, 6IX9INE released his debut mixtape Day69: Graduation Day which charted at #11 in the ARIA albums chart (Feb 2018). The Mixtape has amassed a staggering 36 million streams across all tracks since release. 6IX9INE has also taken home three Gold ARIA accredited singles, GUMMO, BILLY and his recent collaboration with Nicki Minaj ‘FEFE’ which is now set to hit Platinum sales in the coming weeks.
Atop his reign across Australian platforms, 6IX9INE has recently hit over 4.2 billion streams globally, with an average of 200 million streams globally per week with the official ‘STOOPID’ music video trending at #1 music video on youtube over the weekend and already amassing over 10 Million streams.
