Tekashi 6ix9ine pushes back release of new video “out of respect” for ongoing crisis in US

Tekashi 6ix9ine has pushed back the release of his upcoming music video once more “out of respect” for what the US is “going through right now.”

Last week, two days before the intended release of the accompanying video for his latest single, Tekashi pushed back the release to June 5, after revealing that the video wasn’t ready.

The recently freed rapper, real name Daniel Hernandez, saw big returns on his comeback track ‘Gooba’, as the clip for the song broke YouTube’s existing record for the most views of a hip-hop video in its first 24 hours.

Now, Tekashi has pushed the release back again following the death of George Floyd and the containing protests across the US in the wake of his death. In a post on Instagram, Tekashi wrote: “Music video will be pushed back again to June 12th Out of respect for what we are going through right now.”

He added: “It’s not the time for a music video right now with everything going on in the world. It will be extremely selfish. JUNE 12TH NEXT FRIDAY.”

 

Earlier this week, Tekashi sent his condolences to the family of George Floyd who was killed whilst in police custody on May 25 but added that he still wasn’t able to speak on “certain topics” since his release from prison.

“I’m still not a free man,” the rapper said while pointing to an ankle monitor he’s had since his release. “I’m home under supervised release. I can’t speak on certain topics but what I want to do and what I am gonna do is send out my deepest condolences to the Floyd family.”

Floyd, 46, died in Minneapolis last week following an altercation with police officers. Floyd, who was African American, was killed when a white police officer appeared to kneel on his neck as he lay on the ground during an arrest.

Officer Derek Chauvin has since been sacked and charged with second-degree murder and manslaughter. Three of his colleagues, Thomas Lane, Tou Thao and J Alexander Keung are now all facing charges of aiding and abetting second-degree murder, and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter. Since Floyd’s death, protests have erupted in the US and around the world.

The likes of Primal Scream, Dua Lipa, Ghostpoet and a host of other notable musicians have shown solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement by attending yesterday’s protest in London.

The event was organised as part of a day of action against discrimination following widespread protests in the US and across the world following the death of George Floyd while in police custody in Minneapolis last week (May 25).

Former police officer Derek Chauvin has been charged with second-degree murder and manslaughter, while three other officers now all face charges of aiding and abetting second-degree murder, and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter.

The event, which began in Hyde Park, saw many chanting George Floyd’s name and carrying signs bearing his name.

Footage posted on social media showed Dua Lipa joining the crowds alongside boyfriend Anwar Hadid, who shared videos on Instagram.

Primal Scream also posted footage on the band’s official social media accounts, describing the event as “beautiful.”

Other footage came from Sam Smith, who shared a series of powerful banners and photos from the march.

Ghostpoet, meanwhile, said his first ever march was “life-changing”.

Yesterday’s event also saw John Boyega receiving widespread praise for addressing the huge crowd.

He told the crowd: “Black lives have always mattered. We have always been important. We have always meant something. We have always succeeded regardless. And now is the time. I ain’t waiting.”

Boyega also told protesters that he was “speaking to you from my heart”, adding: “Look, I don’t know if I’m going to have a career after this, but fuck that.”

Many protestors at yesterday’s march also wore face masks due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, while organisers stressed the need to enforce social distancing guidelines.

It comes after a number of names from across the worlds of music and entertainment have publicly called for justice for George Floyd following his death last week. The likes of Ariana Grande, Ice Cube and Snoop Dogg also called on Americans to vote in yesterday’s presidential primaries (June 2).

London to get new socially distanced music event and venue this October

Published

A new socially distanced, immersive music event and venue will launch in London this October as the coronavirus pandemic continues.

One Night Records have announced that the event and venue, deemed ‘Lockdown Town’, will launch this October at an as yet “secret” pop-up location near London Bridge. The event will run from October 2 until October 31 and will take fans on a nostalgic journey through 1950’s rock and roll.

Describing the experience, venue organisers said “the exciting new live event, the first of its kind to be designed as a social distanced experience, will offer guests the chance to spend a unique night out together with a group of friends or family in a specially designed safe environment.”

Tim Wilson, Managing Director of One Night Records says: “We’re going to do it safely, but we’re going to get people back together and we’re going to give them an amazing night. The social distancing is part of the show so guests won’t notice it. We want to give Londoners something to book now and to look forward to.”

in recent weeks, venues have spoken of their concerns and requirements if live gigs were to be allowed in the UK again under the easing of coronavirus lockdown restrictions – and what it could mean if social distancing was enforced at shows.

The immediate future of live music in the UK remains uncertain. With the majority of the summer’s shows and festivals cancelled or postponed, with social restrictions potentially being kept in place in the UK for the rest of the year. 

In the US, the mayors of L.A. and New York suggested that public concerts won’t be able to return until 2021, with a poll finding that most gig-goers would rather wait until a vaccine is found until attending shows again.

Many countries in Europe and Scandinavia have also banned mass gatherings until September, although Sweden had controversially allowed for gigs with up to a capacity of 40 people to take place with appropriate social distancing measures in place. Additionally, Spain is looking to phase in live music events from May in a number of stages with gradually increasing capacities.

Back in April, Music Venue Trust (MVT) launched a new campaign, ‘Save Our Venues’, in a bid to stave off the continued economic threat to over 500 grassroots music venues throughout the UK.

Artists and fans are being encouraged to head to the campaign’s website if they wish to help save a venue currently in crisis, where they can access “the tools and guidance to perform an ‘at home’ gig in support of that particular venue”.
