I could give 2 flips about 6ix9ine other than this article made me smile a little. I hold some rather strong opinions of this though will keep to myself. I'd be writing for an hour. Just let it be said that if I see him in the RIP section in the near future, I won't be a bit surprised. I would imagine China Virus is a blessing in his eyes. elephant

Here's Why No Kid Hungry Rejected 6ix9ine's $200,000 Donation (Hover over headline for full article)

After Tekashi 6ix9ine clapped back at his haters in his "Gooba" comeback single and video and flashed stacks of cash and a $1 million diamond-encrusted pendant, the 24-year-old rapper felt like doing some good.

He reportedly made $2 million in less than a week since the May 8 release date of "Gooba" and its accompanying merchandise line, according to TMZ. So what's the first thing 6ix9ine tried doing with a cool $2 mil? Donate 10% of the profit, which comes out to $200,000, to No Kid Hungry, a national campaign that primarily strives to end child hunger -- especially during coronavirus when one in four kids could struggle with food insecurity after schools shut down and unemployment rates spiked, according to the website's opening statistic.

"During this pandemic I understand we have nurses and frontline Hero’s who risk there life daily to save others. But NEVER forget the children & families who depend on OUR PUBLIC schools for daily meals and nutritions to keep our future leaders growing to their best potential," 6ix9ine (real name Daniel Hernandez) wrote in a since-deleted Instagram post. "To every influencer out there REMEMBER if you are blessed GOD gave you that blessing not just for YOU but also TO HELP OTHERS GOD FIRST."

Except No Kid Hungry declared his money was no good.

The campaign's director of strategic communications Laura Washburn explained the decision in a statement to Complex. "We are grateful for Mr. Hernandez’s generous offer to donate to No Kid Hungry but we have informed his representatives that we have declined this donation," she wrote. "As a child-focused campaign, it is our policy to decline funding from donors whose activities do not align with our mission and values."

6ix9ine responded to Washburn's claim, writing on his Instagram in a since-deleted post, "@nokidhungry rather take food out the mouth of these innocent children I never seen something so cruel." His fans even flooded No Kid Hungry's Instagram pictures with "L" comments that signaled rejecting his major donation was their loss.

But since scoring an early prison release in April because of the pandemic, his racketeering and firearms charges might not be the only things on the "Gooba" rapper's track record that fails to align with No Kid Hungry's mission and values. In March 2015, the then-18-year-old rapper pleaded guilty to three felony counts for use of a 13-year-old girl in a sexual performance after an inappropriate video from October 2015 surfaced online. He later breached his plea deal when he was arrested for misdemeanor assault in March 2018 after allegedly choking a 16-year-old boy in a Houston mall earlier that year in January.

Yes, fair play to them. It's too easy for folk to make charity pledges as though they don't need to follow it through in their own life  Idea

British rapper Sneakbo has had to apologise after getting criticism for filming his newest video with little or no regard for social distancing:

Rapper Sneakbo has apologised for filming a music video during lockdown, describing it as a "totally regrettable episode".
The 27-year-old was seen shooting the video in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, on Friday. A local resident said "up to 200 people" took part.
Sneakbo said on his Instagram page that he now realised "how irresponsible and thoughtless that was".
It is a valid question how videos will change, even if only temporarily. I've seen more animated and lyric-based ones lately.

Brit rapper Wiley has had a difficult few days. He undertook a long "meltdown" on Twitter in which he ranted and raved a lot, and got dropped by his record label accordingly.
