Tekashi 6ix9ine reportedly moved from prison to a federal facility

He's thought to currently be facing a minimum of 32 years in prison

Tekashi 6ix9ine has reportedly been moved from prison to a federal facility only days after the rapper was warned that he could face life behind bars.

The ‘Gummo’ artist – real name Daniel Rodriguez – was remanded in custody on Monday (November 19) after facing an initial court appearance where prosecutors confirmed he faces racketeering and firearms charges alongside three other men. If found guilty, 6ix9ine faces a minimum sentence of 32 years and a maximum of life in prison. The charges reportedly arise from a five-year investigation into the Nine Trey Bloods street gang, of which 6ix9ine is allegedly a member.

6ix9ine’s lawyer Lance Lazzaro released a statement yesterday (November 21) asserting his client’s innocence. “Daniel Hernandez is completely innocent of all charges being brought against him,” the statement reads. “An entertainer who portrays a ‘gangster image’ to promote his music does not make him a member of an enterprise.”

Although the rapper’s request for bail was denied on Monday, he has now reportedly been moved from the Federal Prison of Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center to a federal facility. An inmate search on the Federal Bureau of Prisons seemingly reveals that 6ix9ine was released from prison yesterday evening.
TMZ are behind these new reports, with the outlet claiming that 6ix9ine is now being held in a federal facility known for housing “neutral inmates” who are often “witnesses who cooperate with the feds”. The rapper’s lawyer Lazzaro told TMZ that the transfer was made for “security reasons”.

Earlier today, it was announced that the release of 6ix9ine’s album had been delayed as a result of his arrest. He was due to drop ‘Dummy Boy’ tomorrow, but it has now been confirmed that the record has been shelved for the time being.

For reasons beyond music, the record company will hold off on putting his project out for now,” she wrote. “Danny, I love you and am praying for you, your Mother, daughter & her Mom during this time.”
