Tekashi 6ix9ine can officially say “I’m back, they mad. Big mad, stay mad.” On Monday, June 22, Billboard announced that 6ix9ine has landed his first No. 1 record thanks to the Nicki Minaj collaboration “Trollz.” The track beat out DaBaby and Roddy Ricch’s “Rockstar” for the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100.
It marks the first No. 1 record of 6ix9ine’s career, while Minaj gets her second.
“YOU CANT STOP ME. YOU CANT BLACKBALL ME. DIDNT I TELL YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!! NO RADIOOOOOOOOO (ZERO) @applemusic @spotify @thelarryjackson @carlchery DIDNT GIVE US ANY MAJOR PLAYLISTING on Spotify and Apple,” the rapper wrote in a celebratory video on Instagram.

6ix9ine and Minaj previously worked together on the track “FEFE” which rose to No. 3 on the Hot 100 chart. Just last month, Minaj recorded her first Hot 100 No. 1 after teaming up with Doja Cat for the “Say So (Remix).” In April, 6ix9ine’s first track since being released from prison, “GOOBA,” hit No. 3 on the chart.
