JACQUES: On April 1st, 2020 Hip-Hop firebrand
Tekashi 6ix9ine was released early due to coronavirus concerns. He will finish the rest of his 24 month sentence
while at home. And a recent report suggests 6ix9ine *can*
release new music. In October 2019, the rapper reportedly signed
a 10 million dollar deal with 10k Projects, home to Trippie Redd, Lil Gnar and others. He is set to release an album in English and
in Spanish. This is the latest chapter in the seemingly
never ending saga of Tekashi 6ix9ine that began with his September 2017 hit, “GUMMO.” Tekashi put on the costume of a violent gang
member and ended up flipping on many of his compatriots from the “GUMMO” video and
others a day after his November 2018 arrest. He also reportedly dismissed witness protection
for 24/7 security. In September 2019, Genius spoke to to a disappearance
expert on whether or not 6ix9ine could survive outside *and* return to rap.
