Update: According to TMZ, Tekashi 6ix9ine has been granted bail which will get him out of jail before the July 20th date as previously reported. 6ix9ine will be released from Rikers Island once his $150K bail processes. He will then be required to turn himself into Harris County, TX officials on Monday where he will pay $5,000.


Update: According to reports, Tekashi 6ix9ine was denied bail, and now the rapper has been transferred to Rikers Island as a safety precaution. The rapper is in isolation.

Tekashi will allegedly stay in isolation until July 20 and will be restricted from having any contact with any other inmates.



Tekashi 6ix9ine appeared in NYC court yesterday. Reportedly, he faces extradition to Texas. The original incident occurred in Houston.


Yesterday, Tekashi 6ix9ine took to Instagram to reveal that he'll be back in New York in "six days," but it seems he came five days early and the police were there to greet him. According to TMZ, the "Keke" rapper was arrested on an outstanding arrest warrant in Houston.

Earlier this year, a warrant was issued to Tekashi for allegedly choking a 16-year-old boy in Houston's Galleria Mall in January. Video showed the rapper confronting the teen, but Tekashi was never taped choking him.

Tekashi's team told TMZ that they were planning on addressing the warrant, adding that it's unfair that he was arrested and will possibly be extradited to Texas over a misdemeanor offense.

More details to come.
