6ix9ine Placed in General Prison Population

  /  11.20.2018

6ix9ine is not receiving any special treatment as he awaits his bail hearing.

The rapper’s lawyer, Lance Lazzaro, tells TMZ that Tekashi has been placed in the general population of Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center instead of the segregated part of the federal prison due to his celebrity status.

Metropolitan Detention Center has a reputation for being brutal and houses inmates that are “extremely dangerous, violent, or escape-prone,” according to the U.S. Justice Department.

One prosecutor claims ex-members of Tekashi’s crew “wanted to super violate him” by inflicting harm and possibly shooting him. However, his lawyer believes he will be fine in the gen pop.

Tekashi’s bail hearing had originally been scheduled for Tuesday, but it has been moved to Wednesday since the judge was unavailable.

The 22-year-old was arrested and indicted on six federal charges, including discharging a firearm while committing a crime, which carries a max sentence of life in prison.
