Rapper claims Tekashi 6ix9ine would be murdered in 'less than a month' if he's released
At the end of last year, Tekashi 6ix9ine was arrested on federal racketeering and firearms charges. The 22-year-old artist, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, pleaded not guilty to the charges, but was denied bail on account of previous criminal activity. Since then, he's been remanded in jail pending his court case - but not everybody thinks that's a bad idea.
Rapper Boosie Badazz believes that when (or, more likely, if) Tekashi gets out, he wouldn't last long on the streets.
"WHEN YOU FIRST WENT TO JAIL I WAS LIKE FREE DUDE CAUSE I DONT LIKE TO SEE NO ONE N DAT CAGE LIKE DAT," wrote Boosie, whose real name is Torrence Hatch Jr., on Instagram.
He then went on to allude to Tekashi's reported cooperation with police, and that "rats" aren't tolerated on the outside.

"ONE THING I DONT CONDONE OR SUPPORT IS RATS YOU GOTTA SAY U A B***H ASS N****S WHO WAS JUST WAS PLAYING HOE GAMES WITH EVERYBODY 🤷🏼♂️YOU HAVE TO ADMIT ON WAX THAT YOU A HOE ASS N***A FROM NOW ON," he said.
"WE HATE RATS 🐀 IDK ABOUT NEWYORK BUT N LOUISIANA U WILL BE MURDERED LESS THAN A MONTH AFTER YOUR RELEASE FRFR YOUR KIDS WILL BULLIED N SCHOOL FOR THE DECISION YOU MADE ,YOU PUT ALL YOUR FAMILY N GRAVE DANGER FOR LIFE CAUSE OF THIS BS, DID U THINK BOUT THEY SAFETY? Keep it 💯u DONT care bout nothin but YOU SMH."
Boosie's complaints were referring to Tekashi's alleged assistance to police in providing evidence against Kooda B for his involvement in the 2018 attempted Chief Keef shooting.
Kooda is currently facing a decade in prison if convicted. Meanwhile, 6ix9ine was originally expected to wind up with around 47 years behind bars - but his cooperation with police could see that drastically reduced.
Following his initial arrest last year, The Department of Justice released a 17-page indictment claiming that 6ix9ine and his former associates were involved with, or members of, the Nine Trey Bloods.
In the report, Angel M. Melendez, the HSI Special Agent in Charge, wrote:
"Members of Nine Trey, who wielded firearms and pushed highly addictive drugs onto New York City streets, allegedly showed an unprecedented level of violence this year, and for that they are now facing multiple charges, including an incident in which an innocent bystander was shot.
"This criminal enterprise has no business in our city, and we will continue to work with our partners to ensure that Nine Trey crew members, including the more well-known ‘Tekashi 6ix 9ine,’ are in a place where they cannot inflict further violence on our communities."
Despite the mounting evidence against him and the threats of violence from the outside, though, Tekashi does not seem bothered by the prospect of a life of confinement. Just last month, his girlfriend shared a picture of herself with him, and detailed all the lavish gifts he'd bought for her since being incarcerated - including a black Mercedes-AMG G65.
Tekashi is not due to be sentenced until next year.
