It looks like a lot of media outlets are reporting that Tekashi 6ix9ine might be released from jail in the next 72 hours.
There were also reports that the rapper might have to serve at the least, 37 years in prison. The only person who could sway the decision is the judge overseeing his case who could potentially lower his sentence. Conflicting reports are saying that he might not get a lighter sentence, nor that he would actually walk on Wednesday when his hearing begins.
6ix9ine was a wild guy who made good music using the clout and backing of some shady organizations to sell records but it didn’t end well for the rapper as it got nasty really fast just like what ‘the streets’ does, he should have stood by those street rules. Tekashi instead turned on the rules that made him big and started snitching.
Earlier the rapper had sent a seemingly heartfelt letter to the judge who will be presiding his sentencing hearing saying that he has learned the error of his ways and that he doesn’t want others to fall into the same situation as him, wanting to be an example to other people. His letter also said that he was remorseful of the bad things that he did, and felt bad for the people that he hurt and asked the judge to give him a second chance, a new lease on life. If given the chance, he would dedicate the rest of his life in helping others while moving forward with his career.
As much as people criticize 6ix9ine, people who have met and talked to him on numerous occasions has said that he is a good kid, a good person. He made a big mistake in being caught up with illegal gang activities trying to show people that he could be a gang member that led to his incarceration.
The bright spot for the rapper is that once he does get out, his fans will still welcome him back because most of them don’t care about gang culture and all that they will care about is that their favorite artist is free. In terms of 6ix9ine himself, we will see if this experience will humble the rapper. Will 6ix9ine use his experience being caught up in a gang and prison as a teachable moment not only to make great music again but to teach young kids that you shouldn’t be caught up with the wrong people.
