Tekashi 6ix9ine’s plan for getting out of jail, after snitching on the Nine Trey Gangster Bloods who helped him come up, is essentially to be a moving target. He turned down entering the Witness Protection Program so that he can continue pursuing his rap career (and presumably to keep all of his highly identifiable tattoos). Now, it looks like he might just have the money to pay for all that private security. TMZ reports that 6ix9ine’s former label, 10K Projects, struck a record deal worth more than $10 million. Once 6ix9ine gets out of prison, which he’s hoping will be soon if granted time served, he will reportedly make two albums: one in Spanish and one in English. His sentencing hearing has been moved up to December 18, where we’ll find out if he’ll make it to the studio in the new year. Before snitching, he was looking at a minimum of 47 years in prison. A “music insider” told “Page Six” that 6ix9ine was already making moves from inside prison. “It looks like he will be making music right away when he comes home,” the insider spilled. “He already contacted a young NYC producer, and someone purchased two beats for him.” Is that young producer Charlie Puth? Heard he’s interested.
