While some are under stay at home orders due to the coronavirus, some are being released back into the wild like 69. Brooklyn rapper Tekashi69 was released from lockup after he was deemed at high-risk of contracting the coronavirus in the federal prison system.
Manhattan federal Judge Paul Englemayer granted 69 an early release from the Queen Detention Facility because he suffers from asthma. No objections were made. Tekashi69 is not viewed as a threat to the community, he will have four months of his five year supervised release on house arrest (GPS monitor).
Good for Tekashi, but not so good for R. Kelly, Kodak Black, and YNW Melly who tried to convince the judge they should be released free during the pandemic as well.
More importantly, let’s not forget that 69 is a SNITCH and was sentenced to 24 months in prison after being convicted of nine federal charges. He allegedly was forced by Manhattan prosecutors to testify against the notorious New York City gang “Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods”.
