Tekashi 6ix9ine excluded from the 2023 Premios Juventud for security concerns

Tekashi 6ix9ine has been trending on social media for the videos and photos where he is seen with Yailin La Mas Viral.

The Premios Juventud 2023, a musical extravaganza showcasing Latin American talent, is scheduled to take place in Puerto Rico, and the star-studded guest list has music lovers buzzing. The event is set to feature many artists nominated for their outstanding work this year across 44 categories.

Some of the big names include Bad Bunny, Grupo Frontera, Maluma, Peso Pluma, Rauw Alejandro, Rosalia, and others. However, there’s one artist whose presence (or lack thereof) has sparked a lot of speculation – the internationally renowned, tattooed sensation with Mexican roots, Tekashi 6ix9ine.

Tekashi 6ix9ine, known for his controversial persona and distinctive musical style, has built a reputation not only through his songs but also through his association with Yailin La Más Viral. The rapper, who commands a massive following on social media and is a staple at major musical events, has recently left his fans wondering if he would grace the stage at the Premios Juventud 2023.

With host Alejandra Espinoza and dozens of other artists already in the country, anticipation for a magical night is building.

Will Tekashi69 perform at Premios Juventud?

However, the question on everyone’s mind is: will Tekashi 6ix9ine attend the 2023 Youth Awards? The artist’s popularity and crowd-pleasing music have fans hopeful, but recent news may disappoint them.
