Murda Murphy Joined Tekashi 6ix9ine’s Management Team In 2020
Murda Murphy became part of Tekashi 6ix9ine’s management team in April 2020, almost as soon as the rapper finished serving his 2-year jail sentence. Tekashi (real name: Daniel Hernandez) was charged with multiple felony counts, including money laundering and racketeering, and faced a 47-year jail sentence.
His sentence was reduced to two years after he helped the prosecution build a case that helped put away several members of the Nine Trey Gangstas Blood gang, including his former manager. He was granted compassionate release as a result of the outbreak of the deadly COVID-19 pandemic that ravaged the US and the world in general in 2020.
Sources close to Murda Murphy have revealed that the talent manager and the rapper have been very close friends for years and that Murphy had been the one taking care of Tekashi’s needs during his time behind bars. It didn’t, therefore, come as a surprise to many who were aware of this fact when Murphy took on the responsibilities of managing Tekashi’s music portfolio.
During his time as Tekashi’s manager, Murphy’s management company has reportedly earned more than $20 million from album sales, concerts, and merchandise. He has also been instrumental in re-shaping the rapper’s public profile since his release from prison.
An instance of the re-shaping process saw Murphy take to his Instagram account to share a photo of himself and Tekashi on his Instagram account just after the rapper was released. Some words he used about the rapper included hardworking and resourceful while reiterating his unwavering support for the rapper.
Murphy was also quick to go against Hulu for releasing a 2020 documentary titled 69 The Saga of Daniel Hernandez, which took a look at the rise and the fall of Tekashi. His issue with the network centered around the fact that they had not obtained sufficient permission from Tekashi’s management before going forward with the production.
