New York rapper 50 Cent is keeping his nose on the biggest headline of April. The G-Unit boss has stepped forward to react to rumors about jailed rap artist Tekashi 6ix9ine possibly getting released from prison today.
Fif went to Instagram to geek out over his “Get The Strap” collaborator possibly seeing the light of day. Curtis Jackson reacted to the rumors with a post poking fun at 6ix9ine’s pal Akademiks.
“👀😆Now associate1 ya gonna have to tell everybody how you were on tape in court on the phone coaching Mel. to super duper violate shorty but the Feds never picked you up because you are doing your job Confidential informant.”
On Wednesday, reports emerged about 6ix9ine’s possible legal victory. Buzz generated revealing he could get out from behind bars if a judge gave him the green light.
In a document shared by respected court journalist Matthew Russell Lee, who has covered all the trial dates of Tekashi 6ix9ine’s hearing, the rappers legal team claim the government have until 5pm to deny his release. The document from United States District Judge Engelmayer says that the court had received a request from Daniel Hernandez aka 6ix9ine for compassionate relief and that that had been denied. However, the document goes on to say, ‘…his application to convert the balance of his term of imprisonment to home confinement is now administratively proper’. (Capital Xtra)
Wait, There’s More
The massive news immediately generated a ton of social media reactions. People have lit up their Twitter pages to share mixed thoughts on 6ix9ine getting out of prison.
Before You Go
In March 2020, Tekashi’s legal team requested he get released from prison. The request came after coronavirus started to spread across the nation at a rapid pace.
6ix9ine’s attorney, Lance Lazzaro, wrote a letter to the judge Sunday night citing serious concerns for Tekashi’s wellbeing behind bars. Lazzaro says Tekashi suffers from asthma — making catching coronavirus that much more serious — and he wants him out ASAP. In the letter — obtained by TMZ — Lazzaro also reveals Tekashi was diagnosed with bronchitis and sinusitis late last year and was hospitalized for treatment. (TMZ)
