6ix9ine is known for his Brooklyn upbringing but, as he's said in the past, his mother was actually born in Mexico and she emigrated to New York City when Tekashi was a child. Now, years later, the rainbow-haired rapper has visited to family in Mexico for the very first time.

In a video he uploaded to his Instagram page Thursday afternoon (Aug. 30), we can see the controversial rapper embracing one of his relatives in a moment that definitely feels like an emotional one.

"I never met my family before.... This was so crazyyyyyy .... My first time in Mexico this shit broke my heart connecting with family I never seen before I’ve only spoken to," 6ix9ine says in the video. "[Me] being younger not understanding why my Mom left her country to make a better future for us. THIS right here hits home. ARIBA MI PINCHE RAZA TE AMO," he continues.

At the end of the first video we can see 6ix9ine handing his relative a stack of $100 bills. He gives her a hug just moments later.

In another IG video, the "Gummo" rapper heads to a school and handing out more money. This time, he hands out cash to children. He says the school is one his mom attended many years ago.

"I went to my mom school where she attended 45 years ago AND IT FELT AMAZING GIVING HOPE TO THESE KIDS," Tekashi writes in the caption for the post. "Even if they didn’t really care for what I said it felt so gooooooood seeing them happy and knowing that there’s always a way out and a way through! TE AMOOOOOO MEXICOOOOO."
