Tekashi69

The backlash begins against Tekashi69, the troubled rapper who was scheduled to perform in concert at Howard University's Homecoming. His concert was canceled minutes before the doors opened.

On Friday, a New York Superior Court judge sentenced the 22-year-old rapper to four years probation for using a child for indecent purposes in an adult film.

Echostage, the company that promoted the Howard concert, announced the concert was canceled just minutes before the doors opened over the weekend.

"Due to circumstances beyond our control, the Tekashi69 concert tonight has been canceled." They said in a statement.

Apparently, a protest against the troubled rapper -- and poor ticket sales -- were enough to persuade the promoter to cancel the concert.

To boost ticket sales, the promoter even planned a $5,000 Halloween costume contest, but that wasn't enough for students to forget that a culture vulture and gang banger walked free after taking advantage of a minor child.

Students at Howard University have morals and a sense of common decency.

But one ticket holder complained that she put in time to dress her little brother up as Tekashi, and she was bitter that the concert was canceled.

    What exactly is beginning?
    If it didn't happen before we knew all the facts why would it happen after we got the facts and his punishment was given.
    Folks have done WAY worst and from all nationalities and have careers.
    Maybe he's learned his lesson and will check for ID

    sorry Sandra, but i just saw something in one of the ads on YOUR page that took my breath away... "Ntozake Shange of 'For Colored Girls' Dead at 70" !!! ...i had this book in my collection at a very young age, and i still have that tattered paperback somewhere on a shelf... RIP to this Sister, smh.

    (as you were...)

  • Coco Mcluvin

    But we did know the facts, lol...it wasn't a knew trial. Just a new punishment was handed down based on a violation of his original agreement.

  • Trey

    Howard really wanted this culture vulture at the school?

  • Yoni7

    I STILL don't know what this boy sings/raps.

  • MsPam

  • Soon2BWife

    You’d be surprised. I don’t get it but unfortunately our kids no matter what their echelon or pedigree gre love gang and thug culture culture. Media, reality tv and music has had a kuch more pervasive effect than most will admit. Howard University and Tekashi whateva shouldn’t share a sentence string......

  • Alextra Ballard

  • Judge Mental Will

    Sadly this is not stopping his bag. Dude is booked around the world. I wish death on no one but I do see early death in his future. Between his mouth, rap beefs and people he surrounds himself with, he's destined for prison or death.

    The Real HU (Hampton U.) would have never considered this dirty bird to ever step foot on our illustrious soil.

  • Elevated Soul

    My cousin goes to Howard and she told me people were demanding their money back.This dude belongs in jail for being a child predator. he is a weird dude. he should also be on the sex abuser registry.

  • Karen Brady

    How was the kid used in the video? I know nothing and don't care enough to go googling. What is his race btw?

  • Oh Tommie

    You mean HI (Hampton Institute)? ?

  • Solstice
  • Karen Brady

    Me too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can see that cover in my mind. RIP is right sis.

  • Oh Tommie

    He’s more known for rap beefs than his music. It’s sad that he’s free and not in jail or at least on the sex offender registry...we need tougher laws for these pedos. Protect the children!

  • SumthinSweeter

    I think he is Hispanic.

  • Karen Brady

    Thanks. I finally just googled him. You're right. Mexican and Puerto Rican parents.

    We go by the moniker HU, since the "other" school couldn't represent those letters well. :) :)

  • WhoKnew

    I'm wit it. Cancel all his shows. I can't stand these no talented ninjas that always think they can do every possible wrong, commit every possible crime and life just goes on for them with no consequences or repercussions. Gone. Get. Scram. Take a hike. In my Phylicia Rashad voice "carry your ass on".

  • FukkFolks2018

    I had FORGOT about him til Yoni brung it up. Lmaooo

    Unfortunately and sadly, people like him do not learn their lesson. #xxtentacion#.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Yet the buzz still hasn't gone away. Parents have spoken up on their daughters being emotionally abused. Andrea has spoken on being physically abused.
    I want to know when we'll start withdrawing those dollars?

    I think he's a great artist, but will never get help unless he's forced to. I want him to "Step in the Name of Love" to some assistance. I can't even listen to him on the radio any more.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I think she had experienced 2 strokes, but don't know if that was the cause of her passing.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    I'm glad people are waking up to these non talented people, who are criminals. SMH!

    That's good. This young man brings nothing but drama. Our HBCU's have enough to deal with. Go to the barrio somewhere and perform. Don't need or want you!!

  • tia

    Well said...

  • BloodBlood

    GOOD!!!!!!

  • Lainy Damone

    So glad that ppl stuck together on this one . Troubled is an understatement Wonder how he fixes his face if this fails Lazer for tats is not joke especially on the face.

  • Lainy Damone

    and no rap drama

  • Lainy Damone

    *rape

  • Lainy Damone

    FYI just read that he Tik TAK 69 or whatever blew the promoters off NOT that the concert was cancelled

  • Coco Mcluvin

    I mean obviously, but they haven't been forced to give us an answer because they for sure aren't gonna say that. What logic are they using?

  • ClaireHuxtable

    "4EVER T.H.U.G.L.I.F.E."
    *I think I heard you say that*

  • Juliaquan C Spain

    This little guy needs some help like seriously.....who in the hell walks around looking like this......come on....I will not pay 2 cents to see him.

  • BaileyBlue17

    Right. He performed at a venue in NJ instead.

  • Li-Wright

    I just don't understand these colleges and frat clubs hiring these gangster rappers, some of them killers and gang members....I just don't understand it. Chief Keef....even R. Kelly! isn't insurance aware of their backgrounds?
    Oh btw, everybody should get the Rolling Stone issue about how singers/celebs make money these days. You see them doing endorsements, instagrams, YT, etc. But one thing I learned is although they may have a lot of streaming views and sales, the money-royalties are SLOW to come in. It has to be accounted for and audited before it hits the artist bank account.
    It's still true today: Touring is the bread & butter of all these rappers and singers.

  • Li-Wright

    Well whoever booked him in the first place needs to be investigated.

  • Malcom Flex

    A Black college pays that Starburst goon money and for what? Damn right they should have canceled that.

  • Rayne

    He should’ve never been considered in the first place.

  • sunni_daze

    Good.

  • LYRICS

    I read the book, so I know I will go see the movie. Lowkey though, I KNOW at least 1 Pac track was played in that movie, that's my REAL real reason for wanting to see it!! I enjoyed the book, and sometimes a movie doesn't do the book justice, but I'm tossing that sentiment out the window! LOL!

  • millz

    The other guys (the guy from glee and a few other accused committed suicide) didn’t get the same pass...

  • Jersey Girl

    Pac tracks are definitely done justice in the movie..you won't be disappointed

  • justlooking

    or even R Kelly!
