6ix9ine Story to be Turned Into a 3-Part Showtime Documentary

The rise of rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine was meteoric. His fall was just as fast. 6ix9ine became a household name and was pumping out Billboard hits on a seemingly weekly basis, but then, he was arrested and hit with RICO charges for his affiliation with the Tr3way Blood gang.

6i9ine eventually turned into an informant and told all in order to reduce his own sentence, but he then signed a multi-million dollar recording deal and his story isn’t over yet.

While we may not know what is next for 6ix9ine, we will get a look back at his wild ride from being a bodega worker to international rap star thanks to a new documentary series that is being put together by Showtime and Rolling Stone.

Showtime is set to air a three-part miniseries titled SuperVillain that was produced by Rolling Stone, Imagine, and Lightbox. The project was inspired by an older Rolling Stone feature titled “Tekashi 6ix9ine: The Rise and Fall of a Hip-Hop Supervillain.”

“Tekashi 6ix9ine’s story fits into Rolling Stone’s history of epic narratives about the most important and controversial artists of our times,” Rolling Stone president Gus Wenner said in a statement. “We are thrilled to work with Showtime, Imagine and Lightbox on the definitive docuseries of Tekashi’s meteoric rise and spectacular fall.”

The wild story hopes to highlight what social media can impact in the music industry also shines through.

“The bizarre and complicated rise of Tekashi 6ix9ine is a story of our times,” Showtime EVP of nonfiction programming Vinnie Malhotra added. “Beyond becoming one of the most notorious hip hop artists of this generation, his story speaks volumes of the impact of social media and manufactured celebrity in our society. We’re thrilled to be partnering with such heavy hitters in the world of music and documentary to bring SuperVillain to life.”

So, while we don’t know when exactly the project will be released, our popcorn will be ready.
