Tekashi 6ix9ine investigates into Billboard's "corruption."
With the backing of the federal government, it appears that Tekashi 6ix9ine's willing to take on just about any machine at this point, including the Billboard charts. Last week, he went on a tirade against Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande's new collab over merch bundles that would help them claim the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100. That being said, the success of "GOOBA," in his opinion, should warrant the top spot on the Hot 100 this week.

Earlier today, Tekashi 6ix9ine revealed his findings in a recent investigation into the Billboard charts. The rapper and his team pressed Billboard about Ariana Grande's and Justin Bieber's new collaboration to find out that there were allegedly six credit cards used to purchase half of 60K units moved at the last minute, though Billboard didn't disclose who those credit cards belonged to. The funny thing about the rant is 6ix9ine's attempt to disguise it from looking as if it wasn't self-serving was a fail. He pointed to the number of streams that amounted to more than 50M and said that 20M got disqualified.
In the days since 6ix9ine's taken aim at Billboard, it appears that they may have removed his chart history completely. It's currently listed as unavailable but perhaps, it's just a glitch in the backend.
