Tekashi 6ix9ine jokes about snitching on LA businesses violating lockdown orders after ratting out street gang
The rapper will serve out the rest of his four months under house arrest, but that doesn't seem to be getting in the way of him making jokes about his incarceration
Tekashi 6ix9ine has commented for the first time on Instagram since his release from prison on April 2, and it's a joke about him snitching.
The rapper was given a temporary release due to his pre-existing health conditions - asthma and bronchitis - making him more vulnerable to COVID-19 disease that continues to affect people during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. He will serve the remaining four months of his sentence at home, under house arrest.
While there were mixed reactions to the news, it appears the rapper himself is taking it all in his stride and enjoying his first taste of freedom since he was incarcerated last year. He was arrested on charges of racketeering, weapons, and drugs and later pled guilty to nine charges including conspiracy to murder and armed robbery. Aside from these charges, 6ix9ine was also accused of and pled guilty to a felony count of using a child in a sexual performance in 2015.
But the most famous part of his legal troubles was related to 6ix9ine testifying against fellow members of the Nine Trey Gangsters who were also arrested along with him, which allowed him to receive a lighter sentence - a sentence of two years, as opposed to a potential forty-seven years in prison. Almost immediately, memes filled the internet which saw 6ix9ine "snitching" on everyone including Spongebob and the location of all six infinity stones.
And now, it appears the rapper has chosen to jump in on the joke.
In his first appearance on social media since his release, 6ix9ine hopped on a post shared by The Shade Room, which stated the Mayor of Los Angeles would be offering a reward to anyone who would snitch on businesses that were in violation of the city's "stay-at-home" orders, by commenting "Coming to the rescue". Seems like the rapper is not done airing other people's business, despite his previous feuds leading to his life being in serious danger. He has been kidnapped, pistol-whipped, and threatened, and fans have told him to "do right from here on out," adding "You are given a 'second chance.' Do not mess it up and get in any kind of trouble; and if you get around troublemakers, leave them alone and stay away from them."
Trolling aside, the rapper was also seen in an Instagram Live with some friends on Friday following his release where he showed viewers his asthma inhaler and bragged about finally being free. One of 6ix9ine's lawyers, Lance Lazarro said he was "very happy to be out of jail" and was "looking forward to his future and having a second start," while his other attorney Dawn Florio added that the rapper would be releasing two new albums "as soon as possible," stating he "already has that advance for 10K Projects," in reference to the $10 million contract he signed with his label 10K Projects. Florio also confirmed that as part of the deal he has to "put out a Spanish album and an English album."
The rapper plans to record both while confined at home this year.
