Even though the whole of Tekashi 6ix9ine’s story has yet to be written, the story of his viral infamy still goes on. The newest venture into his life and career comes from the newly available Hulu documentary, 69: The Saga of Danny Hernandez, which premiered today (November 16th).
The documentary covers everything from his face tattoos, to the gang life following him from his childhood to the present and chronicling all the (pun intended) bloody details. 69: The Saga of Danny Hernandez also features people who are close to them speaking about the rapper and his chaotic rise in the music business.
The synopsis reads as follows: Part investigative documentary, part real-life gangster movie, 69: The Saga of Danny Hernandez unpacks the life of polarizing rap sensation and internet troll Tekashi69. One of the most controversial figures in contemporary pop culture, 69 repeatedly broke the internet with his sensationalist music videos and social media beefs before infamously testifying against Brooklyn gang the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods in a landmark trial. Director Vikram Gandhi (Kumaré, Barry) gets up close and personal with the neighborhood locals who knew 69 when he was still just Danny Hernandez—before the hard-core persona and the face tattoos—to chronicle his meteoric rise and fall from fame and probe the harsh extremes of addiction to fame in the digital era.
69: THE SAGA OF DANNY HERNANDEZ is directed by Vikram Gandhi. Produced by Vikram Gandhi of Prophets, Jeremy Falson and Jude Harris and executive produced by Van Toffler, Floris Bauer and David Gale of Gunpowder & Sky.
