Is Tekashi 6ix9ine really beaten up in jail? Lions Ground breaks down this story with the available facts. A story emerged on the internet that Tekashi 6ix9ine was attacked in the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn.
This story has not been confirmed, but where there is smoke is fire. An hour ago, TMZ published that the rapper was transferred to a federal facility.

The news platform TMZ wrote: “Sources connected to the new detention center tell TMZ … federal authorities facilitated the transfer Wednesday night … Here it comes … “Our sources say 69 specifically asked to be in a unit away from the Crips and the Bloods,” says TMZ.
The Bloods and the Crips are extremely territorial and quite passionate in protecting their neighborhood against invasion by one another as well as other rival gangs.
Will 6ix9ine chant TREYWAY next to The Bloods and the Crips? I don’t think so. He’s moved from general population to federal facility with no gang members.
However, transferring to a federal facility happens usually when the inmate is a witness and is about to cooperate with the feds. Snitching.
Tekashi 6ix9ine’s lawyer has released a statement explaining that his client has become a victim of his own created gangster image following his arrest last Sunday.
The colorful rapper, real name Daniel Hernandez, reflected a street gang image to promote his music. The drama arose when Tekashi69 met members of Nine Trey Bloods during a 2017 concert and hired them for management and security, who were arrested last Sunday for racketeering charges. When Hernandez found out that his team was stealing from him, he fired his entire team.
This appeared six days ago on his Instagram account.
Tekashi69’s Lawyer Lance Lazzaro said the following: “Daniel Hernandez is completely innocent of all charges being brought against him … An entertainer who portrays a gangster image to promote his music does not make him a member of a gang.”
After Tekashi 6ix9ine appeared on Power 105’s New York radio station The Breakfast Club where he explained why he fired his team, his life was at risk.
6ix9ine’s lawyer Lazzaro said: “Threats were then made against his life which resulted in this case being brought immediately.”
Do you believe he’s attacked or do you think he’s going to snitch?
