Tekashi 6ix9ine is getting an eight-part documentary podcast series dedicated to him titled Infamous: The Tekashi 6ix9ine Story from a new partnership between Spotify and Complex.   

Angie Martinez, aka the Voice of New York, will narrate the series, which takes a deep dive into the rise and fall of “2018’s biggest rapper,” according to the press release.

“Tekashi has a polarizing personality and his story has taken us on a roller coaster ride like nothing we’ve ever seen in hip-hop,” Martinez said in the release. “So, when Complex reached out with this project, I was excited about the opportunity to help tell this story.”

Infamous: The Tekashi 6ix9ine Story will air weekly episodes starting Jan. 28, 2020 exclusively on Spotify. The podcast’s plotline will start back in 2014, when 6ix9ine (otherwise known as Daniel Hernandez) was working behind a Bushwich deli counter and a customer — which ended up being his manager Kifano “Shotti” Jordan — told him he had what it took to become a rapper. The eight-part series will continue to delve into Hernandez’s life from becoming a viral, rainbow-haired personality to a person behind bars for racketeering and firearms charges.
