So, Tekashi 69 has been moved to the famous high-security prison on Rikers Island, TMZ is reporting.
According to the media house, this was confirmed by law enforcement which said that the rapper was sent to the 140-cell portion of the New York jail, which is mainly used to house inmates battling illness. It’s also used to house high-profile or celebrity inmates who, for their own safety, can’t be in general population — and Tekashi falls under that category.
“We’re told 6ix9ine is being held in isolation, and will have ZERO contact with other inmates … even when he’s taken outside for his hour of recreation. Inside the facility he’ll only have contact with correctional officers,” TMZ said.
This comes barely a day after Tekashi appeared in court yesterday for his bail hearing in New York and it was denied by a judge who felt he might flee the country if he’s let out of jail before his extradition to Texas.
Now he has been moved to the famous Rikers Island and we can’t wait to see how this pans out.
