(AllHipHop News) A spring break Party featuring controversial rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine is drawing outrage from local citizens.
Tekashi 6ix9ine is booked to play at Clayton’s Beach Bar in South Padre Island in Texas this March, but his criminal record and a reputation for violence have some questioning the venue’s booking practices.
The rapper could face up to two years in prison this April after he pleaded guilty to three counts of using a child in a sexual performance over a sexually explicit video from 2015.
In addition to flaunting his membership in the Bloods gang, the colorful rapper has also been embroiled in several beefs.
During one incident last week, gunshots were fired outside of a venue in Minnesota after a performance by the Brooklyn rapper, during Super Bowl weekend.
“Clayton’s Beach Bar was surprised to hear up & coming rap artist 6ix9ine was involved with an inappropriate video taped incident (3) years ago, when 6ix9ine was (18 years old) involving several teenage boys & girl,” the manager for Clayton’s Beach Bar said in a statement.
“Clayton’s supports the arts however does not condone any artists’ misconduct on or off the stage. Clayton’s venue plays host to all musical genres,” the statement reads.
So far, management has resisted calls to cancel Tekashi 6ix9ine 17 and over show, which is slated for March 14th.
“Let the people decide,” the venue said. “If they want to buy a ticket, kind of like the cinema if you don’t like the movie don’t go to the show, or you can protest the theater if it suits you.”
Last week, the rapper’s fearsome reputation led to the cancellation of a show in Easton, Pennsylvania.
