Tekashi 6ix9ine's estranged and homeless father, Daniel Hernandez, is ready to cash in on the rapper's success — but his son doesn't seem willing to hand over the big bucks.
Hernandez — who has the same birth name as the "FEFE" crooner — revealed in a video that he's been living in a homeless shelter for the past two years while his famous son is living a lavish life. He seemed to have made the video as a way to reach out to the 25-year-old and let him know about his current living situation.
"Because I don’t have an apartment, he doesn’t know that I’m in the shelter," Hernandez said. "Now he’s going to know I've been here for, what, two years already?" The 60-year-old then shamed 6ix9ine, claiming the rapper hasn't offered him any money while he's nonchalantly handing out cash to strangers, according to Hernandez.
"You think he'd come hook me up with something," he said in the video, obtained by Page Six. "He's been giving money to other people… he gives money to everybody. 'Here, here, here.'"
Hernandez, whose been estranged from his son for more than a decade, previously made headlines when he showed up for 6ix9ine's sentencing in December 2019. At the time, the "Gooba" rapper reportedly pleaded guilty to several crimes related to his Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang involvement.
During the sentencing, Hernandez asked to speak about his son — but the judge shot him down. "It's way too late to show and speak on his behalf," the judge reportedly told the troubled father. "You squandered that right many years ago."
6ix9ine — who was released from prison last April due to the COVID-19 pandemic — was also shocked by his father's presence, as he told the court before being sentenced: "I took one glance — I see my biological father. I haven't seen him since the third grade. I don't even know if this is a f**kin’ joke, everything I go through."
6ix9ine reportedly first met his father when he was 9 — the rapper's mom, Natividad Perez-Hernandez, kicked him out of the house, according to the "BILLY" rapper's lawyer, after she caught Hernandez allegedly shooting up heroin in the bathroom.
