Tekashi 6ix9ine To Be Released From Rikers, Gets Bail in NY & TX

Tekashi 6ix9ine found out the value in having good lawyers, after they scored him a sweet deal that’s getting him out of his Rikers Island jail cell a week early.

The rapper’s been granted bail and, once he pays $150k, he’ll be released — on one condition. That condition is he surrender Monday in Harris County, TX to pay $5,000 bail there.

As was reported, 6ix9ine was arrested in NYC earlier at JFK airport this week for an outstanding warrant out of Harris County, where he allegedly choked a 16-year-old back at a shopping mall in January.

On Thursday, a NY judge refused to grant him bail, saying he was a flight risk, but 6ix9ine’s lawyers first got Texas prosecutors to agree to a bail amount and then, during an emergency hearing in NYC, a judge granted him bail there.

Tekashi was going to be held in NYC until July 20th, when Texas officials planned to extradite him.

He will be released once his $150k bail payment is processed.
