Last week, two days before the intended release of the accompanying video for his latest single, Tekashi pushed back the release to June 5, after revealing that the video wasn’t ready.
The recently freed rapper, real name Daniel Hernandez, saw big returns on his comeback track ‘Gooba’, as the clip for the song broke YouTube’s existing record for the most views of a hip-hop video in its first 24 hours.
Now, Tekashi has pushed the release back again following the death of George Floyd and the containing protests across the US in the wake of his death. In a post on Instagram, Tekashi wrote: “Music video will be pushed back again to June 12th Out of respect for what we are going through right now.”
He added: “It’s not the time for a music video right now with everything going on in the world. It will be extremely selfish. JUNE 12TH NEXT FRIDAY.”
