It looks like 6ix9ine has made more enemies.
Sources claim the incarcerated rapper has pissed off his fellow inmates because of his perceived “special treatment” in the clink. As previously reported, 6ix9ine was initially placed in general population at Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center but was transferred shortly after because he kept receiving threats behind bars.
Well, it appears authorities are still concerned about 6ix9ine’s safety.
The insider told TMZ that the 22-year-old is now at an undisclosed facility typically reserved for informants. Upon his arrival, officials put him in a dormitory that was cleared of any gang-affiliated individuals. 6ix9ine is now reportedly sitting alongside 11 other inmates who’ve been described as “docile.” The outlet reported that this particular dorm is known to house high-profile suspects, corrupt cops, and child predators.
6ix9ine’s alleged accommodations reportedly ruffled some feathers, as other inmates have reportedly expressed their irritation over the rapper’s reported star treatment. The source claimed one inmate attempted to ridicule the rapper “by singing a song about a child predator”—an obvious reference to 6ix9ine’s child sex case.
The rapper’s attorney, Lance Lazzaro, could not confirm or deny the source’s claim but simply told TMZ that he “doubts his client is getting preferential treatment.
6ix9ine and his associates were arrested last week on racketeering and firearm charges. He is now facing 32 years to life in prison; however, his lawyer said he’s convinced that the charges will be dropped.
“I believe that the charges against him is an over-charge by the U.S. Attorney’s Office,” Lazzaro told XXL, “and that when the facts come out I am confident that the charges will be dismissed as it relates to Daniel Hernandez Tekashi 6ix9ine.”
