Tekashi69 Thought "It Was His Day To Die" During RobberyCelebNMusic247.com has the latest on each of these rappers who continue to make headlines. First up is Tekashi69 who believes that he was set up and that the robbers who pistol-whipped him had intel of his whereabouts.

Here is what we’ve received from reports:

1. Tekashi69 Robbery NOT a PR Stunt, Here is why!

Tekashi69 says he blacked out after getting pistol whipped, though he remembers enough to believe it was indeed a setup. Yesterday, he posted that he thought he was the next rapper to die.

6ix9ine was on Monday’s “TMZ Live” and told us he suspects the people who kidnapped and robbed him had intel about his whereabouts, and it was no accident when they hit his vehicle with theirs early Sunday morning.

OK, so here is what Offset is claiming. He believes that he’s the victim of the so-called “hip-hop cops.”

The cops say he was pulled over for “failure to maintain lane” because he crossed over the solid yellow line.

We’ve been pulled over for the same BS ticket, harassed and warned to watch out mouth. The sad thing is cops do this all the time, but they don’t get pulled over because they crossed over the solid yellow line. Nope!

If they have gone ticket for it, they need to abide by the same laws on the road.

Offset’s attorney, Drew Findling, says officers only targeted his client because he’s a rich, successful black rapper.

We feel, its just the end of the month and they need to make quota on tickets. It’s BS, but a real thing. And yes they target young men, Black, Latino and anyone who doesn’t look white. #FACTS

During an interview with Charlamagne, ENVY and Ye of The Breakfast Club, Wiz Khalifa denied he was dating model Winnie Harlow

That’s my homegirl, she’s super sweet. I told Amber don’t be doing that, yo. She be the main one talking about “If I take a picture with a man everyone thinks I’m dating with him” and then I take a picture with Winnie and she’s like “you’re Sebastian’s stepmom.” No, don’t do that. Don’t do that. That’s internet sh*t, we don’t play that.

Oh how things have changed. Wiz is making sure everyone knows that Winnie is his lady, saying:


They look perfect together, we hope this relationship leads to marriage or at least something longterm for them both.

Here is another photo of the two of them. They look very happy together.
