Canadian hip-hop artist Tory Lanez wants Tekashi 6ix9ine out of prison. The rap crooner has encouraged fans to sign a petition to have him released from behind bars.

The Toronto native hit up Instagram Friday (January 4) to show some unexpected support for the self-proclaimed King of New York.

Last month, Tek’s girlfriend Jade updated fans on his condition and urged fans to sign a petition.

According to reports, 6ix9ine didn’t get his daughter anything for this past Christmas.

Sources close to the rapper’s family tell TMZ … his baby mama, Sara, and their 3-year-old girl, Saraiyah, have not heard a peep from him since he’s been locked up on federal racketeering charges, and that includes Christmas Day. We’re told while 69 managed to gift his girlfriend Jade a brand new G-Wagon while he’s behind bars — which she proudly flaunted on Instagram — but he didn’t deliver anything to Saraiyah for the holidays.

Recently, 6ix9ine’s ex-girlfriend Sara updated fans on their relationship and revealed he does not reach out to her or their daughter.
