Tekashi69 meets long lost family in Mexico, dishes out thousands of dollars

Troubled rapper Tekashi69 has published video of an emotional meeting with long lost family members in which he hands them wads of cash.

The 'Fefe' hitmaker visited his aunt and uncle in Mexico during a stop in his touring schedule.

"It's my first time in Mexico, I never met my family," he tells the camera.

"This shit's going to be f**king crazy."

The footage shows Tekashi69 entering into an emotional embrace with his aunt before counting out what appears to be thousands of dollars and handing it over.

"This shit broke my heart - connecting with family I never seen before, I've only spoken to," he captioned the video.

The rainbow-haired rapper explained that his mother had left Mexico to "make a better future" for her children.

"THIS right here hits home," he added.

In a second video, Tekashi69 visits his mother's former school and dishes out US$100 bills to the children there.


"Even if they didn't really care for what I said, it felt so good seeing them happy and knowing that there's always a way out and a way through!"

This year has beeno a roller-coaster for Tekashi69. While his popularity has greatly risen, the 'Gummo' rapper is facing a potential jail sentence over historical child porn charges and was reportedly beaten and robbed at gunpoint in July.
