Complex Presents Dummy Boy: Tekashi 6ix9ine and The Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods
By Shawn Setaro

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “In tracing Danny (Tekashi 6ix9ine) Hernandez’s life from Bushwick to the heights of the rap scene, reporter Shawn Setaro illuminates the story of the young rapper who forged an alliance with a notorious street gang to bolster his image and boost his internet clout. Before long, Tekashi’s antics and affiliations caught up with him, leading to a major police investigation that tore apart his team and saw him squarely behind bars, facing a life in prison. A thrilling true-crime narrative set in the contemporary hip-hop world, Dummy Boy draws on dozens of exclusive interviews with collaborators, associates, and witnesses, to provide a detailed account of the most beguiling and intriguing story in modern music. More than a biography, Dummy Boy is an American crime story, a critical examination of internet trolling in the Trump era, and an exploration of the long-running connection between rap, gangs, and police in New York City.”
