TMZ reported that Tekashi 69 was greeted by Crips who tested his ‘gangsta’ after entering the Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center. This tense event took place on November 19th, after Tekashi traded spots for safety reasons, according to tot he latest reports.
But, unfortunately, it seems that the new place is just as threatening as the last one.
TMZ reported that after he entered the new facility, Tekashi was received with massive hostility by a few members of the Crips in detainment.
They allegedly tested his mettle by standing their ground. Tekashi was reportedly lucky because prison staffers were quite quick to intervene before things had a chance to get ugly there.
69’s lawyer Lance Lazzaro said his client ‘was being threatened in jail. However, he was not scared nor did he request being removed. The (Bureau of Prisons), acting upon these threats, removed him to a different facility to eliminate the threat.’
As you all know, Tekashi is (or was) is a reputed member of the 9 Trey Gangsta Bloods, a gang which is largely associated with his racketeering charges.
After this ‘G Check’ incident, ‘the Bureau of Prisons has so far been unwilling to assume any responsibility for the hostile exchange,’ writes Hot New Hip Hop.
In other news, Tekashi’s album is more successful than expected, even if it’s out just for a few days.
