6ix9ine claims his safety is seriously at risk because he ratted on the Nine Trey Gangster Bloods, and he says the private jail he’s currently in is chock-full of Blood gang members.
Tekashi 6ix9ine was sentenced last month to two years in prison for crimes he carried out while he was a member of a violent gang.
The rapper, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, pleaded guilty to racketeering and other offences in New York.
The 23-year-old initially denied the charges but entered a plea bargain, giving evidence against other gang members in order to get a reduced sentence.
The 13 months he’s spent in jail already will be included.
The rapper had been facing a minimum of 47 years and a maximum of life in prison but the plea bargain means he could be released around November 2020.
He testified against former members of Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.
The offences 6ix9ine was charged with include racketeering, carrying a firearm, assault with a dangerous weapon, and conspiracy murder charges.
Racketeering is when people use criminal actions to repeatedly take money from others, often associated with protection rackets.
It all came from his association with a violent US gang Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods – also known as TreyWay – which 6ix9ine previously mentioned on Twitter.
He joined the gang in 2017 but left less than a year later.
The inner workings of the gang was exposed by 6ix9ine – and another ex-gang member, Kristian Cruz.
Nine Trey Bloods committed robberies, dealt drugs and were violent against rivals and each other according to their testimonies.
6ix9ine gave information on Anthony Ellison and Aljermiah Mack and both men have since been convicted.
