In spite of recently being locked up on Rikers Island, and having to pay over $150,000 in bail in two states, Tekashi69 is keeping his head high and humor intact. TMZ spotted 6ix9ine Tuesday night in the L.A. area a day after he turned himself in to authorities in Harris County, TX and posted bail soon after to walk out a free man.
Despite only facing a misdemeanor battery charge after the rapper allegedly put hands on a 16-year-old earlier this year, he likens the case to a murder charge, so his comments are dripping in sarcasm.
Tekashi even makes light of his time at Rikers, saying he was close to being killed, which also isn’t true, as he was sent to a special area of the jail for his own safety.
He does get serious for a bit about the case, for which he’ll be arraigned this Friday, saying it’s a classic money grab. But not before he addresses that fantastic tie job he had in court.
