Tekashi 69 Claims ‘Billboard’ And Streaming Services Tried And Failed To Stop Him From Going No. 1

Tekashi 69 got his first No. 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 yesterday when “Trollz” debuted atop the chart. Naturally, he took to Instagram to celebrate the feat, and he used his platform to accuse Billboard, Apple Music, and Spotify of trying to prevent him from reaching his goal.

In a celebratory video, Tekashi and a friend pop bottles of champagne and spray them all over the room. Addressing the camera, he yells, “I can’t be stopped, n****! Didn’t I tell you?” He also thanked his fans for helping him to “beat the industry.” He reiterates some of what he said in the video in the written description. He accuses Billboard, Apple Music, and Spotify of trying to “blackball” him and “Trollz,” saying that the streaming platforms “didn’t give us any major playlisting.” He also says that he “went up against the music industry and won.”
