New York rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine is going to need a little more than prison walls to keep him from his one true love. New reports claim the hip-hop artist is working away at a follow-up to last year’s Dummy Boy album.

According to reports, the self-proclaimed King of New York is using the current experience behind bars to inspire his next solo project.

Sources close to 6ix9ine tell TMZ … Tekashi’s spending most of his time behind bars writing and producing songs for his next album. He’s even created visuals for the record. We’re told the circumstances of his incarceration have worked in his favor. On the negative side, he’s facing possible life imprisonment for the various charges, and the negative forces have inspired some serious writing. On the positive side, the rapper’s getting strong support from family, close friends and girlfriend Jade, who proudly displayed this butt grab behind bars. (TMZ)

Recently, buzz developed about Tek not having permission to enjoy conjugal visits during his stint.

An official for the Bureau of Prisons tells The Blast there are strict rules to physical touching between visitors and inmates, and “In most cases, handshakes, hugs, and kisses (in good taste) are allowed at the beginning and end of a visit.” The BOP also makes it clear, there are NO conjugal visits. We’re told they recommend wearing clothing that is “appropriate for a large gathering of men, women and young children,” and warn that if a visitor violates the dress code they could be denied visitation.

A few nights ago, Jade shared Tek’s first prison pic.
