50 Cent learned Tekashi 6ix9ine could possibly get out of prison any day now due to coronavirus concerns on Wednesday (April 1). But Fiddy, who once referred to the embattled rapper as his “son,” thinks 6ix9ine going to have to explain why he decided to turn government witness.
On Wednesday afternoon, the For Life producer shared a post from DJ Akademiks that showed someone holding an asthma inhaler on Instagram Live. Included in the screenshot was a comment from Aks that read, “Couldn’t hold the king of New York down.”
50 wrote in the caption, “Now individual 1 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 and the charges were Rico & conspiracy Confidential informant.”
6ix9ine took the stand in the federal racketeering case against Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack and Anthony “Harv” Ellison last October.
As a result, Ellison was found guilty of kidnapping in aid of racketeering as well as racketeering conspiracy and maiming and assault with a dangerous weapon in aid of racketeering, while Mack was found guilty of racketeering conspiracy and narcotics trafficking.
In December 2019, 6ix9ine was sentenced to 24 months in prison with time served. But last week, 6ix9ine’s lawyer Lance Lazzaro asked the judge to let his client out early due to his asthmatic condition. Although the judge overseeing 6ix9ine’s case, Judge Paul A. Engelmayer, was sympathetic, he initially denied the request.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to get worse, however, Engelmayer evidently had a change of heart and plans are in motion to release 6ix9ine out as soon as possible.
