There are scores of rappers who would probably love to have a one-on-one meeting with defamed rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine to address his “snitching” ways, including Jim Jones, Cardi B, Meek Mill, Snoop Dogg and The Game.

But Tekashi, who ratted out his criminal contemporaries and members of the Nine Trey Bloods and even those who have alleged gang ties, seems unconcerned that he will be able to make a full comeback in the rap game.

In fact, Tekashi eschewed the recommendation that he undergo an identity change, opting instead to remain a New Yorker who will have bodyguards at the ready.

Moreover, the man born Daniel Hernandez, 23, said that the rappers who have called him a “snitch” are basically jealous of him. Tekashi added that they are fearful that he will soon surpass the legacy of his haters, according to TMZ.

Tekashi is not alone in his sentiments. Amid the large anti-Tekashi crowd, former Murder Inc. label boss Irv Gotti seemed to agree that Tekashi would indeed be all right after this snitching debacle dies down.

“I think it’s a new world and it’s different from when I came up. If we were talking about my generation, he would have no chance. With the new generation he can put out a hit record and they’re gonna f— with it,” Gotti told TMZ.

But don’t get it twisted, Gotti added. He said he’ll never work with Tekashi.

“I don’t know him. I don’t want to know him. I’m glad he didn’t mention me and my name. The guy is snitching on everybody,” Gotti added to TMZ.
