Akon sat down with Vladtv about his “Locked Up” remix with Tekashi 6ix9ine. The song received some backlash due to 6ix9ine’s legal issues that led to him being categorized as a snitch.

Akon explains his thoughts on why he worked with 6ix9ine and why he doesn’t worry about the allegations. There was also discussion about the music label not getting behind the original version of “Locked Up”.

He said that the entire budget was geared toward his other song, “Belly Dancer,” and was only given $10,000 to promote “Locked Up.” Akon detailed how a mini prison tour grew out of the tight budget.
