Tekashi 6ix9ine has been transferred to a extremely secure facility on Rikers Island known as the Contagious Disease Unit, to actually prevent him from getting sick.
TMZ reports 6ix9ine was sent to the 140-cell portion of the NY jail, which is mainly used to house inmates battling illness. It’s also used to house high-profile or celebrity inmates who, for their own safety, can’t be in general population — and 6ix9ine fits the bill.
6ix9ine is being held in isolation, and will have ZERO contact with other inmates, even when he’s taken outside for his hour of rec time. Inside the facility he’ll only have contact with correctional officers.
As was reported, 6ix9ine will be in jail until his July 20 hearing, prior to his extradition to Texas where he’s wanted for allegedly choking a 16-year-old.
