Although his sensational trial and sentencing is over, Daniel “Tekashi 6ix9ine” Hernandez is still making headlines.
Apparently, Hernandez wants out of prison early for fear of his safety after testifying against his former Blood Gang cronies. Hernandez wants to spend the rest of his 24-month sentence under home confinement or in a community correctional facility.
TMZ obtained documents about the filing.
Hernandez has a unique footnote in hip hop history and popular culture. As one of the fastest rising stars ever, 6ix9ine went from chart-topper to threat to society in the same wave.
After multiple run-ins with the law, a kidnapping, and eventual dismissal of the gang culture that made him so intriguing, 6ix9ine’s short career is a whole movie.
As a result of his cooperation with federal authorities, high profile members of his former gang have all been indicted. With a desire to continue his carer in the music industry post-release, 6ix9ine is currently trying to survive.
Conversely, his former manager and Trey Way boss, Kifano “Shotti” Jordan is attempting to appeal his 15-year sentence. Others like Jamel “Mel Murda” Jones was sentenced to 11 years and 3 months for racketeering and narcotics distribution.
The web around the Tekashi 6ix9ine story is deep.
