6ix9ine reportedly got into an altercation with some Crips in prison.
According to TMZ, after the rapper’s unsuccessful bail hearing, several Crips confronted the alleged 9 Trey Bloods gang member when he returned to the Brooklyn Metropolitan Detention Center. The blog says a Crips members “g checked” 6ix9ine to see if he was really a gang member, and things went downhill. Threats were made, insults exchanged before prison staff intervened.
This, reportedly, was the reason why 6ix9ine was transferred to a new, safer facility, his legal team say.
“6ix9ine was being threatened in jail. However, he was not scared nor did he request being removed,” said his attorney Lance Lazzaro. “The [Bureau of Prisons], acting upon these threats, removed him to a different facility to eliminate the threat.”
The rapper is still awaiting trial.
