Tekashi 6ix9ine’s new song “Punani” was Inspired by Dancehall song “Want Yuh Body” aka “Phat Punani” by Leftside.
Tekashi 6ix9ine the American rapper shared a video of his new single “Punani” recently, and it sounds as if it was inspired by the Jamaican Dancehall artiste Leftside’s “Phat Punani” Track.
The new music has gotten a bit of attention within the Dancehall community, for both its popular Jamaican slanged title and it’s familiar-sounding lyrics and rhythm that was released a long time ago.
Leftside did a remix of the original that featured Mystic in 2011 and another time in 2015 when Shawn Paul was featured. Bling Dawg used the rhythm also when he did his track “Lip Sync” .
Tekashi’ attorney, Lance Lazzaro, revealed to a trusted source that the rapper finished home confinement on Sunday and shot a music video in Brooklyn. The 23-year-old wasted no time after he was released.
The music video for the new song “Punani” shows the entertainer out in the streets of New York with his crew and countless security around.
Leftside is about to release new music himself and is yet to talk on the matter, he was asked to sue Tekashi by a fan however the situation was explained by Sean Paul who stated that Left Side got paid from 6ix9ine’s team to remix the hook.
