UPDATE: According to TMZ’s report, 6ix9ine was transferred last night, in an operation organized by U.S. Marshalls. Apparently, 6ix9ine requested to be removed from an environment where both Crips and Bloods roamed free. 6ix9ine’s lawyer, Lance Lazzaro, neglected to mention whether his client actually struck a deal, though he did cite “security reasons” as a prominent measure behind the transfer.
It is now being reported that 6ix9ine was simply transferred to a new facility and has not been released.
Here’s a pleasant surprise to start off your Thanksgiving morning. For anybody wishing Tekashi 6ix9ine could wiggle himself out of yet another bad situation, it appears as though he may have just done so. The young rapper was locked up on federal charges earlier this week when he and a few others were charged for firearms and racketeering offenses. There have been plenty of updates since his initial entry to prison, including the obvious delay of his upcoming album Dummy Boy. Some news that we weren’t expecting this soon has just broken out by way of HHNM, who conducted some research on the matter. Apparently, 6ix9ine was released from the prison he was being held at.
Tekashi was being held at the Federal Prison of Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center but according to the publication, he was released yesterday. After a search of the Federal Bureau of Prisons website, it looks clear that 6ix9ine, real name Daniel Hernandez, is out of prison. Of course, it’s also possible that he was just transferred to another facility for his own safety. Details will be clearer as time passes but it remains evident that he left the Brooklyn center yesterday.
The artist was facing a maximum sentence of life in prison. With this latest update, his case becomes even more unclear but we’ll be sure to update you accordingly.
