New York rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine wants to live another day. The hip-hop entertainer has reportedly had his legal team file paperwork to serve out the remainder of his prison term from home.
Big Facts: According to new reports, 6ix9ine believes his life is in jeopardy if he is forced to serve out his two years from behind bars.
Tekashi’s lawyer, Lance Lazzaro, just filed docs, obtained by TMZ, asking the judge to allow him to serve the rest of his 24-month sentence under home confinement or in a community correctional facility. 6ix9ine claims his safety is seriously at risk because he ratted on the Nine Trey Gangster Bloods, and he says the private jail he’s currently in is chock-full of Blood gang members.

On A Related Note: Recently, an unexpected pic emerged of 6ix9ine’s former manager Shotti surrounded by fellow inmates.
Wait, There’s More: In September 2019, Shotti received nearly 20 years in prison on a felony weapon conviction.
Former Tekashi 6ix9ine manager Kifano “Shotti” Jordan has been sentenced to 15 years in prison after previously pleading guilty to one count of firearm possession during a crime and one count of firearm discharge during a crime, as the Southern District of New York confirms to Pitchfork. The charges stemmed from two separate incidents from April 2018, all of which also involved 6ix9ine. (Pitchfork)
Before You Go: According to reports, 6ix9ine will have to receive mental help and continue working with the feds once he’s released from prison as part of his plea agreement.
The rapper’s been ordered by the court to enroll in an outpatient mental health program once he’s free … according to new legal docs obtained by TMZ. In addition, 6ix9ine must continue to cooperate with the U.S. Attorney’s Office once he’s released from prison in any ongoing investigations where he might be useful. The court’s recommended Tekashi be placed in a correctional facility as close to New York City as possible — so his family can easily visit him. (TMZ)
