Right now, it seems as though wherever Tekashi69 goes, drama follows.
The rapper, real name Daniel Hernandez, is currently serving time in an undisclosed prison in America after being arrested on six counts of racketeering charges and having his bail denied.
But if you think the Gummo singer was kicking back and relaxing before heading to jail, youd be mistaken, because the stars time pre-prison was equally as drama filled.
Before getting locked up, the 22-year-old took a 10-day trip to Los Angeles where, according to TMZ, he spared no expense in buying the best security the city has to offer.
Hiring armed bodyguards from two different security companies, who reportedly provided round-the-clock protection and came with three bulletproof SUVs, the muscle power is said to have set Tekashi back a cool $97,165 (£75,600).
… But, according to TMZ, he has yet to pay the bill.
However, Tekashi is likely to be happy with his investment after his power army successfully managed to foil two rather worrying incidents during his time in the city.
The first situation occurred when Tekashi had a confrontation with fellow rapper Slim 400 at ComplexCon in Long Beach, leading the artist to cancel his performance at the annual event.
In video footage of the encounter, the pair could be heard yelling at each other before Tekashis security detail stepped in to hold him back and ushered him away before things spiralled out of control.
A few days later, Tekashi found himself at the centre of another tense situation, when shots were fired outside a Beverly Hills mansion where the rapper was filming a video with Kanye West.
According to TMZ, about eight shots were fired into the house, with one of them puncturing a bedroom window.
Consequently, the bodyguards flanked the star wherever he went during his time in LA – and made him look pretty dinky in size next to their indisputable bulk.
Shall we all just take a breath and calm down?
