Tekashi 6ix9ine Reportedly 'Gangsta Checked' By Crips In Prison
Tekashi 6ix9ine was reportedly "gangsta checked" by several Crips while in prison. According to Complex, following the rapper’s bail hearing, a number of Crips confronted 6ix9ine when he returned to the intake cell at the Brooklyn Metropolitan Detention Center. One of the Crips allegedly "g checked" him to see if he was really a gang member. The situation apparently escalated quickly with the Crips spewing threats at 6ix9ine and the prison staff had to intervene. His attorney, Lance Lazzaro, said, "6ix9ine was being threatened in jail. However, he was not scared nor did he request being removed. The Bureau of Prisons, acting upon these threats, removed him to a different facility to eliminate the threat." On another note, according to The Blast, the U.S. Attorney has just filed additional charges against Nine Trey Gangsta Blood member, Jamel Jones, AKA Mel Murda. In a superseding indictment, Murda was hit with an additional narcotics charge, as well as possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance. Prosecutors allege that Murda played the main role in the Nine Trey Gangsta Blood’s drug operation, and have accused him of knowingly trafficking large amounts of heroin, fentanyl and MDMA. In other news, according to TMZ, police who reviewed the video where Tekashi is speaking with Chief Keef’s cousin, Tadoe, say that the rapper may have told on himself with the involvement of the shooting against Tadoe. Police think that when the rapper referenced having a "30 pack" on Tadoe’s head, he is talking about the attempted shooting that took place ouside of the W Hotel in Times Square in New York City shortly after the call. As previously reported, it was said that 6ix9ine allegedly ordered hit on Tadoe. Meanwhile, according to The Post, 6ix9ine will likely be re-sentenced to time served next week for posting a video online of a 13-year-old girl engaging in a sex act. Sources said that the rapper was not present in the conference on Friday (November 30th) with Justice Felicia Mennin, prosecutors or his defense lawyer when the decision was made. In October, he was sentenced to carry out 1,000 hours of community service and four years probation. However, because he is being held without bail on the new federal case, he cannot be on probation, so he will get time served.
