Scroll for the insane weight loss. 6ix9ine, making October 2020 headlines after he admitted taking controversial weight loss drug Hydroxycut, proudly updated today to confirm that losing weight was behind his Instagram and music silence. The "ZaZa" rapper, fresh from a new release, posted a pants-only and shirtless photo to open with, then including videos of himself while heavier, also driving fans to swipe for the massive transformation.

"Hey guysss.......... SO the real reason I LEFT Instagram and MUSIC for 6 months is because in September I was the biggest I ever got," he began.

In October of last year, 69 told The Shade Room that he'd overdone the diet pills, even seeing himself sweating in front of his laptop. Per Stereogum:

"He’s already down 25 pounds, and he’ll return to Instagram once he makes his goal weight of 150. He also clarified that he’s only taking Hydroxycut, and not any real drugs, because he’s still on probation. He’s home and reportedly doing “fine” now."
