Early Life, Family, and Education
Teka$hi had a tough childhood and got kicked out of school during the 8th grade. His father was killed in 2009, and he was forced to sell weed, so he could survive.

The Brooklyn rapper was born Daniel Hernandez on May 8, 1996. Interestingly, his musical influences did not start with rap music. He grew up listening to heavy metal groups like Parkway Drive and All That Remains.
Daniel’s life would take a turn for the worse when his father died. He was just 13 at the time and had to do some work to support his mother.
He became a lot of things including a busboy, putting in work at a bodega, and weed peddling. By this time, he had already dropped out of school in the 8th grade when he was expelled.
Thankfully, this didn’t devolve further into a life of crime. After being inspired by the rapper RondoNumbaNine, and a few of his friends.
His professional career kicked off with him doing a collaboration with Bodega Bamz who had nothing but praise for the newcomer.

In November 2017, the rapper Trippie Redd who once collaborated with 69, accused him of Instagram of attacking him at one time while he was in New York.
He proceeded with the insults calling Tekashi a ‘weirdo’, a ‘racist’, and a ‘homosexual’.
