The album, due for release on November 30, was due to feature collaorations with Kanye West and Nicki Minaj. In her own Instagram post, Minaj claimed that the album release was postponed by "the record company." In an emotional caption she added: “Danny, I love you and am praying for you, your Mother, daughter & her Mom during this time.”


6ix9ine, real name Daniel Hernandez, was arrested on November 18 alongside his former manager, Kifano Jordan, plus four assosciates. It is claimed the rapper “participated in the operation and management of” the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods. Two of the firearms charges Hernandez faces have a maximum sentence of life in prison.
