Tekashi 6ix9ine forced to relocate after address is leaked online amid house arrest
The 25-year-old rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine whose real name is Daniel Hernandez was left with no option but to flee his own home after his address got leaked online.
According to TMZ, one of his neighbors captured an image of the rainbow-haired rapper while he was on his balcony and circulated it online. He had to be immediately relocated to a new home for safety reasons, as the online post gave away details about his residence.
He got into trouble a day after his latest Instagram post which sees him posing from his balcony with a stash of bill captioned, “Describe me in one word.”
The ‘KOODA’ singer was serving his time in confinement after being released from the prison in the wake of coronavirus outbreak. 6ix9ine’s attorney argued that he was at high risk of contracting Covid-19 given his pre-existing health issue owing to asthma.
He was arrested in 2018 on charges related to his involvement with the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang. He pleaded guilty in January 2019 and testified against members of his former gang members in September, which led to his sentence being brought down to twenty-four months by a federal judge. Following the prison release, he was allowed to film music videos from his backyard for up to two hours per week. Last week, he released the video for his new song ‘GOOBA’.
He went on Instagram soon after ‘GOOBA’ released and said that he has no regrets about cooperating with the law and ratting his former gang members out. "Y'all could never cooperate with the government and come back. Y'all could never do that. I'm a living legend at the age of 24 years old.", 6ix9ine said during the livestream which was viewed by more than 2 million people.
Towards the end of the livestream, he thanks his defense Lance Lazarro and federal judge Engelmayer. “I want to thank the judge for letting me come home to my family, allowing me to celebrate my birthday with my family,” he says.
He celebrated his birthday on May 8.
Meanwhile, the video for ‘GOOBA’ shows him along with many bootilicious-beauties who are seen twerking throughout. In less than two days since its release, the music video has garnered over 78 million views on YouTube. The description reads that it was directed by CanonF8, David Wept and 6ix9ine.
