6ix9ine Signs Record Deal Worth More Than $10 Million From Prison: Report
On Thursday (Oct. 10), TMZ reported that Tekashi has officially signed a record deal worth more than $10 million with his former label, 10K Projects. According to the report, the deal is for two albums—one in English and one in Spanish.
As previously reported, the embattled rapper reportedly had plans to reject the witness protection program upon his release, despite the fact that he testified against his former associates, Anthony "Harv" Ellison and Aljermiah "Nuke" Mack—which resulted in both men reportedly being found guilty of racketeering conspiracy, among other charges. Instead, he wants to get back to his career, which he allegedly believes will be even bigger once he gets out—which could be very soon.
According to court documents XXL obtained on Tuesday (Oct. 8), 6ix9ine's sentencing has been pushed up from its original January 2020 date to Dec. 18 at 10 a.m. EST, per a request from the rapper's legal team. During his court testimony last month, 6ix9ine himself reportedly said he expected to be released following his sentencing after cooperating with federal authorities for the trial.
A Page Six report published Wednesday night (Oct. 9) alleged that from even behind bars, 6ix9ine has started putting together plans for new music.
“It looks like he will be making music right away when he comes home,” Page Six's source told them. “He already contacted a young NYC producer, and someone purchased two beats for him.”
XXL has reached out to 6ix9ine's camp for comment.
