Earlier this year, many questioned the association between Tekashi 6ix9ine and music executive Wack 100.

It wasn’t clear if Wack 100 was handling rapper “Gummo” or just giving the controversial 25-year-old some advice, but what was clear is that Wack had 6ix9ine’s ear. After reports surfaced that the Wack 100 made 6ix9ine over $ 43 million, and despite pleas from 6ix9ine for Wack to stage a boxing match with Lil Durk, it steered him away from his problem with the Chicago rapper.

According to Wack himself, he lost some friends due to his relationship with 6ix9ine, revealing that some big names reviewed him for the association.

“It really doesn’t bother me a lot of people because I’m kind of a lonely guy. My close friends have called me and attacked me,” Kev told Bootleg. “The one who caught me the most was Birdman. I’m a guy who’s a hundred, there’s no one bigger than politics. That’s my brother. But Birdman, of all, got in my ass.”

In a recent appearance on DJ Akademiks’ Off the record Podcast, Wack explained his relationship with 6ix9ine and said that he had helped him in certain areas, but that he was not his official manager.

“I’m more of a business partner,” he told Akademiks. “Some things have come up that I need to help him with, but I’m more of a business partner.”

Continuing to explain that there are artists that he manages that require his constant assistance, Wack argued that most of the dealings between him and 6ix9ine occur on the business side of things. And if Wack was making $ 43 million for 6ix9ine in a matter of two months, it looks like the business side of things is pretty fruitful.
