Tekashi 6ix9ine 'signs new £8m record deal in prison'

According to TMZ, Tekashi inked a record deal worth over $10 million with his former label, 10K Projects.

The 23-year-old rapper, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, faced a mandatory minimum sentence of 47 years for possession of firearms and racketeering charges.

It's not entirely clear what will happen to the record deal if he has been given an extended sentence.

6ix9ine also admitted in court to joining a violent New York City gang - the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods - and helping others try to kill a rival gang member.

6ix9ine record deal isn't the only thing being reported, according to reports 6ix9ine has already contacted NY producers.

From 1954 until August 5, 2019, Jammu and Kashmir enjoyed special status under the Indian Constitution, which allowed it to enact its own laws.

Either way, 6ix9ine is probably pretty ecstatic about the deal, and the Feds are surely just as happy with the troubled rapper. "It looks like he will be making music right away when he comes home", says an insider.

Tekashi 6ix9ine surprised many with the revelation that he plans to continue his music career instead of entering witness protection. There are reports that he already contacted a producer in NY and someone who got beats for him.

The Stoopid rapper also told court he helped other gang members rob people at gunpoint as part of a pledge by new gang members to commit at least two crimes.

With 6ix9ine now set to be sentenced on December 18 - with some observers predicting that, due to his co-operation deal, his sentence is likely to be drastically reduced - the rapper has received some good news after signing a new record deal with his former label, 10K Projects.

Sources additionally told the outlet, Tekashi's "still itching to make new music, and believes he can pick up where he left off".
