Tekashi 6ix9ine is reportedly worried and afraid that he could catch the coronavirus before he’s released.
According to federal documents, 6ix9ine is shaken over the fact that the coronavirus has made its way into prisons across the country.
He wants to be released A.S.A.P. His lawyer, Lance Lazzaro, explained the severity of 6ix9ine’s situation in a letter to Judge Paul A. Engelmayer.
In the letter, Lazzaro explained that Tekashi has asthma and has recently fought off other respiratory diseases like bronchitis and sinusitis late last year.
The rapper’s battle with these diseases was so intense that he had to be hospitalized because of it. Lazzaro also adds that Tekashi has been experiencing some shortness of breath while behind bars, but officials at the prison won’t let him see a doctor.
The Brooklyn rapper is expected to be released from prison on Aug. 2, 2020. Upon his release, 6ix9ine is expected to jump back into his music career after he signed an eight-figure deal with 10K Projects last October.
