Tekashi 6ix9ine was nabbed by federal authorities in New York City on Wednesday after returning from his tour in Europe. Once 6ix9ine made it back to John F Kennedy International Airport he was arrested. The “Gunmo” rapper will be extradited from his hometown all the way to Houston on a warrant from an alleged choking of a 16-year-old. The judge believes 6ix9ine may attempt to leave the country if he is granted freedom.
According to TMZ, the rapper and his legal team appeared in court on Thursday to attempt to get the rising star released on bail. After pleas to be released, claiming he learned his lesson, he was denied and will remain behind bars. 6ix9ine reportedly stated he needs the support of his mother and family, which was ignored stating they weren’t in Europe.
Discourse from the court included the judge letting Tekashi know that his plea deal from his child sex case was supposed to be a warning to stay out of trouble, however, the arrests are piling up for the controversial rapper.
Tekashi 6ix9ine’s hearing won’t be until July 20 and he will spend days leading up to his court date locked up.
