6ix9ine came by The Breakfast Club this past week and spilled tea on why he fired his whole staff as well as how his former booming agency, MTA, finessed him out of a $3.6 million deal.
He claimed the “dirty promoters” stole money from him and that he only received a couple hundred thousand dollars from what was supposed to be a $3.6 million deal.
Well MTA says there was never a $3.6 million concert deal but that the idea came up in discussions as a possibility. The booking agency and #Tr3wayEntertainment claim they did a lot for Tekashi to include handling the rapper’s security, travel, transportation and working around the clock to escort him to his multiple court appearances safely.
According to TMZ, #MTA said they booked nine upcoming U.S. shows, and two #Mexico shows for Tekashi, all of which he promoted, and he was sent a $700k deposit for those. He was also paid almost $160k in deposits for five #Germany shows.
Tekashi’s attorney, Lance Lazzaro, responded to MTA stating, “We have asked [MTA] to show us any contracts with Tekashi69’s signature showing they were acting as an agent to book performances on his behalf and they haven’t provided us with any to date … Their cooperation has been very limited.”
After #TheBreakfastClub interview, MTA says they are considering taking serious legal action against 6ix9ine for defamation.
