Daniel Hernandez, who is widely known under the stage moniker “Tekashi69” and 6ix9ine, is a famous gifted rapper of Mexican origin. His parents immigrated to USA from Mexico. In his childhood and early teen years, Daniel lived in poverty. His parents took any job they could find; still they were short of money all the time.

At the age of 14, the boy faced his first personal tragedy. His father was assassinated, and his mother had to maintain the entire family alone. To help her, Hernandez left the school after the 8th grade and found the job of a waiter in the nearest pub.

To be honest, serving the tables wasn’t the only job he did. He turned into a drug dealer. Soon he forgot about poverty but got many additional problems with police. Daniel was arrested and imprisoned numerous times. He not just sold drugs; he also took them, participated in fights and even had relationships with an underage girl.
