Following Tekashi 6ix9ine and his controversial testimony that helped convict his former associates Anthony “Harv” Ellison and Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack, the rainbow rapper is prepared to face his fate but is looking for some leniency at the mercy of the court.
According to XXL Tekashi’s attorney Lance Lazzaro requests his client’s sentencing date be expedited due in part to him helping out the Fed’s. 6ix9ine was originally set for sentencing on Jan. 24, 2020, but the rapper is looking for that to happen before the year is out.
U.S Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman filed the rappers paperwork and it appears the prosecution does not oppose the appeal.
“Counsel for Mr. Hernandez respectfully requests that sentencing be scheduled on an expedited basis. The Government does not object to this request,” the document reads.
6ix9ine was facing almost 47 years in prison for racketeering and other charges. The rapper’s co-operation with the feds could have substantially reduced his time behind bars. It’s being said that he could be released as early as the start of 2020. After his release, the Brooklyn native who has reportedly turned down the witness protection program will attempt to resume his music career. Tekashi and some others, believe it or not, think he will be more popular than ever when he gets out.
