#Tekashi69 has been in and out of jail and the courtroom in the last several months. He recently got arrested on Sunday night on alleged counts of racketeering and conspiring to commit armed robberies and drug deals.
According to @TMZ_TV, Tekashi “has been transferred to a federal facility that is regularly used to house witnesses who cooperate with the feds.” The transfer was facilitated on Wednesday evening, and 69 apparently asked to be in an area without Crip and Blood members.
Lance Lazzaro, Tekashi’s lawyer, is yet to confirm whether or not he’s trying to cut a deal in exchange for spilling tea on the people involved in his case, and says the transfer was for “security reasons.”
These “security reasons” apparently have something to do with 69 being threatened by gang members.
Just yesterday, Tekashi’s lawyer put out a statement saying that the rapper is not a gang member and that he’s “an entertainer who portrays a gangster image” to promote his music. Catch up on that tea below!
