Thursday evening (April 3), Dawn Florio, one of the lawyers representing Tekashi, confirmed XXL that the rapper will complete the rest of his home prison sentence. In the conditions for the release of 6ix9ine, Florio also said that he would be allowed to record new music. These new discs include both a Spanish album and an English album. He can also return to social networks.
6ix9ine has been behind bars since his arrest on November 18, 2018 on federal charges of firearms and racketeering. He was granted early release due to his asthma, which could have made it more difficult for him to fight coronavirus if he contracted the disease in prison.
Over a week ago, Tekashi’s legal counsel asked Judge Paul Engelmayer for permission to finish his sentence at home. Judge Engelmayer did not have the legal authority to grant the rapper early release, thereby dismissing the request. The judge then advised 6ix9ine’s lawyers to file a released compassionate care request with the Prisons Office. The BOP, however, was unable to give its seal of approval because the rapper was housed in a private establishment that was not under their control.
Although the Brooklyn rapper is happy to serve the rest of his sentence at home, T.I. revealed that Kodak Black should have been released first. Although Kodak and Tip shared their opinions last April, the Atlanta rapper said the former XXL The freedom of Freshman should be a priority over that of Tekashi.
“Shiiiit Dey must free @kodakblack den …” said T.I. in the comments section of DJ Akademiks’ Instagram post on 6ix9ine. “They should first release Kodak. “
Tekashi was originally scheduled to be released from prison on August 2, 2020.
