Numerous reports began swirling across social media this week that the 'GOOBA' rapper, 24, had overdosed, leaving fans concerned for his well-being. Tekashi 6ix9ine was reportedly hospitalised after a caffeine and Hydroxycut overdose.

Last month, he opened up about his mental health during his time in jail, admitting that at one point, he felt suicidal. Speaking to Fox 5 New York, 6ix9ine admitted that his incarceration took a toll on his mental health and resulted in him contemplating suicide, especially with the pressure he faced from the rest of the world. "I think people would have attempted suicide. At a point in jail I thought about it," 6ix9ine said.

His body apparently reacted badly to this, along with the cup of coffee he'd also drunk. Two diet pills and a coffee might not sound that bad. You're possibly thinking that there's something else at play here. 6ix9ine would like you to stop that. He has apparently insisted that no other drugs apart from Hydroxycut and caffeine were involved. Aside from the fact, he says, that he doesn't take illegal drugs, doing so (and ending up in the hospital as a result) would violate the terms of his probation and send him right back to jail. The rapper, of course, was released from prison early and placed under house arrest back in April over fears that he could contract COVID-19 while incarcerated. He is in a high risk group, due to his chronic asthma. He was sentenced to a two year jail term in December last year after pleading guilty to various criminal charges relating to his past involvement with the Nine Trey Bloods street gang in New York.
