On Tuesday, 23 September, Charlie Puth posted and quickly deleted a tweet promising to produce Tekashi 6ix9ine's next record "for free". He did not offer an explanation for why he posted the tweet in the first place.

Charlie Puth has deleted a tweet where he promised to produce Tekashi 6ix9ine's next record for free if the rapper is released from prison. On Tuesday (23 September), fans on social media reacted to the bizarre declaration from the 'We Don't Talk Anymore' singer after he expressed interest in working with the jailed rapper to his 3 million Twitter followers.

"If 6ix9ine gets out and is able to make another record i'll produce it for free," Charlie Puth tweeted.

The tweet was deleted a short time later but, of course, the internet managed to capture it for posterity.

It is unclear if the tweet was a joke.

After deleting the tweet, Charlie pretty much moved on, posting about his favourite song by Common and answering fan questions. As he answered fan questions, some urged him to apologise for the tweet about 6ix9ine, while others simply wanted to know why he'd tweeted and deleted it in the first place.

23-year-old rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine, real name Daniel Hernandez, was indicted and sent to prison last year on federal racketeering and firearms charges. His recent court testimony against alleged members of the Nine Trey Bloods gang has made headlines in recent days and even spawned memes.

Tekashi 6ix9ine's future remains uncertain with prosecutors hinting that he could enter witness protection – though his distinctive tattoos could complicate things.

What would a Charlie Puth and Tekashi 6ix9ine collaboration sound like? Thankfully, we probably will never know.
