Shortly after his release from jail, the controversial rapper, Tekashi 6ix9ine, attempted to donate an eyewatering sum of money to a well-known children's charity... But, shockingly, they declined.

Keep scrolling to find out why the charity declined such a generous donation, and to hear his reaction to the rejection...

Tekashi 6ix9ine is back.

While many of us believed just a few months ago that the rapper would spend the rest of his life inside a jail cell, Tekashi has been released, and he has wasted no time in stirring up the controversy. But first, let's start from the beginning...

The rapid rise and sudden fall of Tekashi 6ix9ine.

Tekashi 6ix9ine has made one hell of a name for himself... but for all the wrong reasons. He developed a unique persona as a hardcore rapper in 2017 and became well known for his excessively tattooed face and rainbow-dyed hair.

He didn't get off to the best start in life as Daniel Hernandez...

When he was thirteen, his father was murdered just one block from his family home.

The experience had a huge impact on Hernandez, and he soon dropped out of school and started working odd jobs to help his mother.

"My pops died in eighth grade, and I just started bugging in school," he told the podcast "No Jumper" in a 2017 interview, "I was thirteen. I was waiting for my pops to come back home, and he never came."

In order to make ends meet, the teenager turned to selling drugs...

Thus marking the birth of his street persona, Tekashi 6ix9ine.

Yet, despite his rocky start to life...

The young rapper found huge success with his music. Hernandez's first proper single was "Gummo." Released in November 2017, it hit the Billboard charts and was remixed by the likes of Offset and Lil Wayne.

And he has mingled with some big names...

In 2018, 6ix9ine released "FEFE," a collaboration with Nicki Minaj, Murda Beatz, and Kanye West.

However, the rapper has consistently been in and out of trouble with the law.

When Hernandez was nineteen and still rising through the ranks of internet fame and notoriety, he attended a party on February 22, 2015, where he performed several sexual acts with a thirteen-year-old girl.

He was first arrested in March 2015...

Where Hernandez told police he thought the girl was nineteen. He's also contradicted his plea statement in several interviews, insisting that he didn't engage with the girl sexually and thought she was older.

He was finally sentenced for the child-sex case in 2018...

After a number of procedural delays and appeals, Hernandez was sentenced in October 2018 to 4 years of probation and 1,000 hours of community service. Miraculously, he managed to avoid any prison time.

But that all changed one month later...

In November 2018, the federal authorities announced a series of indictments against Tekashi, his manager, Kifano Jordan, and others they said were members of the Nine Trey Gangsters, a notorious New York street gang.

Tekashi was allegedly a member of this gang.

The federal lawsuit accused the rapper and the rest of the crew of running a drug-dealing ring and enforcing their activities through violence.

The charges included racketeering and illegal firearms possession...

And the federal authorities also said the group conspired to commit murder.

Tekashi was denied bail.

After he initially pleaded not guilty to the charges, the judge denied him bail, citing an FBI raid in September that found an AR-15 assault rifle and a stolen ID from a man robbed in Times Square.

But in January 2019, after months of the rapper being held, he suddenly changed his tune.

Hernandez suddenly entered a guilty plea to the charges related to his involvement with Trey Nine, according to court records reviewed by INSIDER.

He controversially agreed to cooperate with federal prosecutors in their investigation.

Hernandez began opening up about his doings while in the gang. "I paid a person to shoot at a rival member of Nine Trey to scare him. The shooting took place in Manhattan. I did this to maintain or increase my own standing in Nine Trey," Hernandez told the judge, according to a court transcript.

Altogether, he spent nearly 2 hours on the stand - wearing blue prison scrubs, a white undershirt, and his trademark rainbow-colored hair styled in pigtails.

In a courtroom potentially filled with current or former Nine Trey members, he testified that he became a member in November 2017, and participated in violent crimes, including shootings, assaults, and drug trafficking.

He outed several members of the gang.

Directly in front of them. He nervously pointed at the defendants, Aljermiah "Nuke" Mack, and Anthony "Harv" Ellison, and ID'd them as Nine Trey Gang Members.

Other musicians shared their thoughts on Hernandez's cooperation...

And many publicly disapproved, both of Tekashi's actions and his snitching... Because you know what they say - Snitches get stitches.

Even Snoop Dog had his say...

By simply sharing this picture of 6ix9ine with the header, "Tekashi 6ix9ine is safe & secured in jail unit with other snitches" with rat, police officer, and police car emojis. You know it's bad when even Snoop disagrees...

It's safe to say that Tekashi entered some seriously dangerous waters.

Moral of the story? Don't join gangs, kids.

Late last year, Hernandez's hearing got underway...

Aka, he found out whether or not his snitching paid off.

Prosecutors broke down just how valuable he had been in convicting 2 members of the Nine Trey Bloods...

As a result of Tekashi's testimony, Anthony "Harv" Ellison and Aljermiah Mack were convicted back in October 2019.

His fate was ultimately decided...

He was sentenced to 2 years in prison with 5 years of supervised release. The judge also imposed 300 hours of community service when he is released from prison and a fine of $35,000.

But, out of nowhere, the rapper was suddenly released from prison just 2 weeks ago.

Why? Well, it's thanks, in no small part, to the ongoing medical pandemic sweeping through the world right now.

Lance Lazzaro, who represents the jailed rapper, filed a motion asking for him to be released early to his home...

The rapper apparently has severe asthma, meaning he falls into the "at-risk" group for the deadly virus.

He spent seventeen months in federal custody.

His lawyer filed the motion, referencing the spread of the virus within the US prison system. He stated that he believed that the rapper should be allowed to serve the rest of his 2-year sentence at home.

After several appeals to Judge Paul Engelmayer, who sentenced him, as well as the US Bureau of Prisons...

The notorious rapper has been released.

He is now enjoying the comfort of his own home...

Which is, of course, unbelievable to hear.

Since his release, Tekashi has been bombarding his social media accounts...

And he changed his Instagram bio to "I'M BACK AND THEY MAD." Arrogance at it's finest.

The rapper has wasted no time with getting himself back into the music scene...

On May 8th, Tekashi released his new track, "Gooba", complete with a grotesque music video... And it has already surpassed 127 million views on YouTube.

But, putting degrading music videos to one side...

Tekashi is apparently feeling a little generous since his sudden release from jail.

The rapper has reportedly donated a hefty sum of money to a children's charity.

According to TMZ, Tekashi decided to give $200,000 of the $2 million made from "Gooba" to No Kid Hungry, a charity that works towards "ending childhood hunger."

But the charity has declined his offer...

And their reasoning makes perfect sense.

In a statement, the charity explained:

"We are grateful for Mr. Hernandez’s generous offer to donate to No Kid Hungry but we have informed his representatives that we have declined this donation. As a child-focused campaign, it is our policy to decline funding from donors whose activities do not align with our mission and values." Evidently, they want no association or ties to the controversial rapper... And we don't blame them at all.

But, of course, Tekashi is not happy with their rejection.

The rapper publicly slammed the charity, and labeled them as "cruel" for their decision. He wrote, "@nokidhungry rather take food out the mouth of these innocent children I never seen something so cruel."

I don't know about you, but I think a charity declining money from a known gang member is the right thing to do.
