BROOKLYN — Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine is placed in general population between extremely dangerous and violent inmates while waiting for bail hearing.
Daniel Hernandez, known professionally as 6ix9ine or Tekashi69, is placed in the general population at Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn today. Strikingly, most celebrities receive special treatment to ensure safety. Remarkably, 6ix9ine has been chosen as a general population inmate instead.
Tekashi 6ix9ine and his former team members were arrested Sunday evening. The rapper was indicted on 6 federal charges for criminal activities some of which risking life in prison. 6ix9ine was an associate of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, also known as “Nine Trey,” an heavy criminal street gang.
U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said: “As alleged in the indictment, this gang, which included platinum-selling rap artist Tekashi 6ix 9ine, … engaging in brazen acts of violence … members of the gang were allegedly involved in robberies and shootings, including a shooting inside the crowded Barclay’s Center, and a shooting in which an innocent bystander was hit.”
Prosecutors told Monday Tekashi 6ix9ine’s life was on the spell following his appearance on the Breakfast Club last week. One of the former members of Tekashi 6ix9ine’s crew “wanted to super violate him” for accusing his inner circle playing a dirty game.
The prosecutor, Michael Longyear, said: “super violate meant inflict harm on Tekashi, including possibly shooting him. He said they took Tekashi in after learning he was planning a trip to a Connecticut casino, and feared an attempt on his life could put innocent people in jeopardy.”
The bail hearing is scheduled on Wednesday
