Tekashi 6ix9ine - An Important Message

Social networks offer platforms for us to share everything on the Internet

The energy you emit, is what you’re going to get back.

Tekashi 6ix9ine, is a Brooklyn, New York based rapper that grew to become one of the most followed artists on social media in the last 12 months. His music videos generated over 1 billion views on YouTube. So basically, this guy was getting attention with a specific psychographic and was able to influence (at least subconsciously) millions of people around the world.

He was considered one of the fastest growing artists on social media at the time of arrest. He’s admitted himself that he’s a "Troll Rapper” making deliberately offensive or provocative online posts with the aim of upsetting someone or eliciting an angry response from them.

He is now facing lifetime in prison for racketeering and gun related charges. His trial begins September, 2019. He was denied $1m bail and will likely spend time in jail until the trial begins. It looks like they want to make an example out of him.

I don’t wish bad on anyone, especially jail time, but the important message is whatever you put out is what you’re going to get back.

I remember in my younger high school years, I thought I was invincible from the law. But if the law sees that you have the opportunity to make a change (you gain money or education to change your environment), then the law will expect 100% responsibility for your actions.

By messing with the FBI or law enforcement in general is serious business which costs you your time. Your most valuable asset.

What surprises me is when I see young people posting images of drugs and guns on social media. You’re basically giving the court evidence for a case against you.

I’m not surprised that Tekashi was being followed by the FBI, due to his large social media presence and influence.

The Law of Cause and Effect states that whatever you send into the universe comes back. Action and reaction are equal and opposite.

Every cause has its effect; every effect, its cause. There is no such thing as chance.

The French philosopher Voltaire - François-Marie Arouet - (1694 - 1778) said: 

Words like luck, chance and coincidence were invented to express the known effects of the unknown causes.

By focusing on the Cause the Effect will automatically take care of itself.

Ralph Waldo Emerson called this Law - The Law of Laws.

You get back what you put out.

It is like a boomerang. You throw it out and it comes back.

If you put a negative out, you will get a negative back. Also, when you put a positive out you will get a positive back, maybe not instant, but it will come over time.

I just write to reach at least one person and wanted to share my perspective on this trending topic.
