Tekashi69's rise and fall from fame to be covered in Snapchat documentary

Tekashi69 is going to be taking centre stage in a new Snapchat documentary on his life.

Snapchat will be hosting a new series of original shows and scripted series will launch across the platform – with the controversial rapper’s rise and fall being tracked in one of the episodes.

The series, titled Vs The World, will see a new star headline every episode, with Tekashi Vs The World being one of the first to be released.

No other names have currently been announced connected to the series.

Snap Originals, including a reality series for Danielle ‘Bhad Bhabie’ Bregoli and transgender beauty mogul Nikita Dragun, will debut this autumn.

Each video is typically no longer than five minutes, will be played vertically on the phone and will feature split screens, and quick cuts in its model.

Tekashi, 23, real name Daniel Hernandez, will have his life put to screen starting from his life as an unknown musician in Brooklyn through to his current prison sentence for racketeering.

He is currently testifying against former gang members of the Nine Trey Bloods gang in a bid to reduce his prison sentence, but those he has spoken out agains, including Cardi B, have denied the claims.

He also testified that he ordered a hit on his rap rival Chief Keef for $20,000 (£16,000).

The unnamed shooter attempted to go through with the attack, earning only $10,000 (£8,000) after failing to shoot the singer.

Following his testimony, Tekashi may enter witness protection for fear the Nine Trey Bloods could come after him for leaking the names.
