On Monday (Nov. 16), streaming platform Hulu began streaming “69: The Saga of Danny Hernandez.” The Vikram Gandhi-directed investigative documentary explores the life and career of provocative Brooklyn rapper Danny Hernandez who is better known as Tekashi 6ix9ine.
A description for the doc reads:
One of the most controversial figures in contemporary pop culture, 69 repeatedly broke the internet with his sensationalist music videos and social media beefs before infamously testifying against Brooklyn gang the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods in a landmark trial. Director Vikram Gandhi (Kumaré, Barry) gets up close and personal with the neighborhood locals who knew 69 when he was still just Danny Hernandez—before the hard-core persona and the face tattoos—to chronicle his meteoric rise and fall from fame and probe the harsh extremes of addiction to fame in the digital era.
