Breaking: Tekashi 6ix9ine Released From MDC And Transferred!

Guess who’s out on the streets already. Tekashi 6ix9ine has reportedly been released

Tekashi 6ix9ine Released Already


But as of yesterday, November 21st, he has been released from the federal metropolitan detention center. A search of the Federal Bureau of Prisons website clearly states that Tekashi, who was inmate number 86335-054 at the prison was released yesterday. See screenshot above. It is interesting to note that no announcement has been made about the release yet by anyone from his team or the authorities.


Tekashi was facing some very serious charges so it’s startling to see him out on the street so quick.  His co-defendants Kifano “Shotti” Jordan and Faheem “Crippy” Walter are all still locked up, with no release date in sight. This is a very interesting change of events for 6ix9ine.


UPDATE:  TMZ says 6ix9ine has been transferred to a facility used for witnesses who cut deals.


Tekashi 6ix9ine has been transferred to a federal facility that is regularly used to house witnesses who cooperate with the feds … TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to the new detention center tell TMZ … the U.S. Marshals facilitated the transfer Wednesday night. Our sources say 69 specifically asked to be in a unit away from the Crips and the Bloods.

69’s attorney, Lance Lazzaro, would not comment on whether his client is trying to cut a deal in return for spilling the beans on others in his racketeering case … he would only tell TMZ the transfer was for “security reasons.” Lazzaro tells us 69 was getting threats from gang members at MDC.

Tekashi, who was behind bars until Wednesday night at the Brooklyn Metropolitan Detention Center where he was exposed to other inmates in general population, is now in a unit with “neutral inmates.” Translation — no gang members.
