Tekashi 6ix9ine took to Instagram to share the meaning behind what "69" stands for and it's probably not what you thought. He shared the explanation along with a photo of him hugging an older lady during his trip to Dominican Republic recently.
"I never lost sense of where I came from. That’s what makes me 69. The true meaning of 69 is just because you’re right doesn’t mean I’m wrong YOU JUST HAVENT SEEN LIFE FROM MY PERSPECTIVE. Turn the 6 upside down it’s 9 but remains the same in a different perspective. Open your mind and heart â¤ï¸." He wrote.
