New York rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine is praying and legally pulling for a miracle. Reports claim the incarcerated hip-hop artist is taking action to receive his prison sentence before 2020.
According to reports, 6ix9ine’s lawyer wants his client’s fate revealed before the currently scheduled January 2020 sentencing date.
According to court documents obtained by XXL, on Friday (Oct. 4), U.S Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman filed paperwork where Tekashi’s lawyer Lance Lazzaro requests his client’s sentencing date be expedited. The “Gummo” rapper’s original sentencing date was set for Jan. 24, 2020, but the rapper wants it to happen before the end of the year. According to the document, the prosecution does not oppose the appeal. (XXL Mag)
According to recent reports, 6ix9ine is confident he can get back to music-making once he’s out of prison.
The federal trial that saw the rapper sing like a canary for 3 days wraps up Thursday as prosecutors and defense attorneys give closing arguments. Tekashi pointed fingers and named names of his old gang members (and other celebs too), but sources close to him tell us he will forgo any participation in witness protection — and will instead opt for a life of fame. That might sound like a death wish, considering how many people he rolled over on during his testimony — but we’re told Tekashi’s still itching to make new music, and believes he can pick up where he left off.

California rap legend Snoop Dogg recently delivered a hard-hitting Lilo + Stitch Disney-inspired meme targeting 6ix9ine for testifying against his former comrades in a publicized drug trafficking case.
“I feel sad for that kid. I feel sad for a lot of kids that’s getting into this sh*t and don’t know what they’re doing. They’re claiming to be something they are not and, you know, this is how it turns out. So at this point he’s got to do what he has to do to save himself but snitching ain’t the way.” (TMZ)
