Tekashi 6ix9ine release date has been confirmed, as the 23-year-old rapper is set to be a free man come August 2, 2020.
Hewas sentenced to 24 months behind bars last year after pleading guilty to nine counts of federal racketeering, weapons-related offenses, and conspiracy.
Throughout the trial, the 23-year-old cooperated with the authorities and helped inform on other gang members and, as a result, was handed a lighter sentence, having previously faced a minimum of 47 years behind bars with the possibility of a life sentence.
Speaking to Hernandez’s lawyer, Complex confirmed that he would not be serving the full term of his sentence and would be released this summer.
Throughout the hearing, Hernandez had told the court that he wanted to show young people how they can reform and change their ways after being caught up in gang crime.
After initially pleading not guilty to the charges, he entered a plea bargain that was the start of his giving evidence to the government.
The musician gave evidence that eventually led to the conviction of Anthony Ellison and Aljermiah Mack on charges of racketeering and other offences.
He testified against two gang members on the first day of his trial. He joined the gang back in 2017 but left after being a member for less than a year.
