What is the inspiration behind his name and music?
Teejayx6 music is inspired by his own past involvement in criminal activities. Some would say his music is self-incriminating because he raps about the different ways he committed a crime in the past.
At only age 9, he got into trouble for carrying a BB gun in his lunch box to school. He then graduated to scamming people on Twitter by selling cheap TVs and Xboxes.
He created fake online stores to dupe clients where he made $500. He later got involved in credit card scams and entered the dark web.
The ‘XR’ in his stage name was inspired by his use of MSR X6 debit card readers. He was arrested for his illegal activities but turned his life around after getting into the music industry.

Teejayx6 tries to keep his personal life low-key, though it is known that he partners with his girlfriend in selling signed products and T-shirts through their online store. Early 2020, he revealed on Instagram Live that he had been blessed with a baby.
Two of his brothers were also involved in illegal activities, and one even served time for committing fraud.
His other brother mentored him in scamming to the point he was selling marijuana and baggies in the first grade.
Teejayx6 took on more responsibilities after moving out of their family home in Detroit. In July 2019, US marshals arrested him in Los Angeles while performing live on stage.
He acknowledges his mistakes in the past and promises to do better for himself, his family, and his fans.
