Under Pressure: Tekashi 6ix9ine Confronted By Crips Gang Members At Brooklyn Jailhouse In Tense Showdown
Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine Confronted By Crips Gang Members At Brooklyn Jailhouse
Tekashi 6ix9ine, 22, was involved in a tense jailhouse confrontation with Crips gangsters at Brooklyn facility weeks ago.
According to what police sources told TMZ, Tekashi had just been denied bail in a November 19 hearing and was in the intake section at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn. It was then he was approached by a Crip who tested him in a process known as ‘G Checking’ in which an alleged gang member’s mettle is challenged by a rival aggressor.
Meanwhile, Tekashi is purportedly linked with the 9 Trey Gangsta Bloods gang. It took the intervention of staffers at the faciluty to break up the potential brawl. The gang member had told the Gummo hitmaker whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, that he wasn’t in charge while in custody.
Eventually, Tekashi was transferred by officials with the Bureau of Prisons ‘to a different facility to eliminate the threat,’ according to his lawyer Lance Lazzaro. It’s understood 6ix9ine ‘was being threatened in jail,’ but ‘he was not scared nor did he request being removed,’ Lazzaro said.
He asked to be held in custody away from units containing members of the Crips and Bloods street gangs, according to what police sources told TMZ. The rapper was subsequently placed in a unit where people who agree to become witnesses for the state are held.
Last month, Tekashi 6ix9ine was arrested in connection with accusations of racketeering linked to drugs, shootings and armed robberies. This also includes an April 3 robbery of a gang-affiliated rival near Times Square he’s directly been linked to.
