Tekashi 6ix9ine Immediately ‘Gangsta Checked’ When He Got Locked Up

There’s an unspoken code. Most people know that when you’re about to enter prison, there’s a code of conduct – mind your business and don’t go in acting like you hard. Tekashi 6ix9ine apparently learned the hard way…

What you say on the outside, can get you hurt on the inside. He was taken to Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC) in General Pop, after being denied bail. MDC is notoriously brutal with inmates who are extremely violent, dangerous or escape-prone.

Tekashi 6ix9ine Fighting 6 Federal Charges

6ix9ine was arrested for his involvement in conspiring to commit:

  • Armed robberies
  • Drug deals
  • Shootings

He is also believed to have personally committed an armed robbery, among other charges spanning over five years. The IG star has been indicted on six federal charges, some which carry a max life sentence.

Tekashi claims to be a member of the 9 Try Gangsta Bloods. He was immediately confronted by inmates affiliated with Crips in the intake unit.

One stepped to him to do a “G check,” which is to see if he is indeed a gangsta, or if he is a fraud and all talk. Tekashi was told to understand who’s in charge. And his only savior from a beatdown was the staffers who quickly came to his side.

Tekashi’s lawyer, Lance Lazzaro, notes that although Tekashi was threatened, he was not scared, nor did he request to be removed, but that it was the Bureau of Prisons who acted upon these threats and moved him to a different facility.

Supposedly though, Tekashi did ask to be in a unit away from Crips and Bloods, leading him the neutral federal facility. This facility is used for witnesses who cut a deal or cooperate with the feds.

His lawyer will not comment on whether or not Tekashi is there because he cut a deal in return for telling it all in his racketeering case. The rapper claimed on the ‘Breakfast Club’ that his inner circle had turned on him and ex-members wanted to violate him.

Trouble seems to follow him as sources connected to the new facility say that inmates there are pissed off because Tekashi was given special treatment. His lawyer denies this.

A dormitory was cleared out and the only ones left behind were those who were not gang affiliated, only eleven remained. The dorm in question is typically used for high-profile inmates, dirty cops and child predators.
