American rapper, 6ix9ine, was reportedly visited in the prison by member of the crip gang.
According to TMZ, the rapper who was denied bail hearing, and allegedly a member of the 9 Trey Bloods gang was confronted when he returned to the Brooklyn Metropolitan Detention Center.
The media house stated that Crips members checked 6ix9ine to confirm if he was really a gang member, which lead to threats, and insults were also exchanged before prison staff intervened.
The threat that took place in the prison led to 6ix9ine’s transfer to a new, safer facility, according to his legal team.
“6ix9ine was being threatened in jail. However, he was not scared nor did he request being removed,” said his attorney Lance Lazzaro. “The [Bureau of Prisons], acting upon these threats, removed him to a different facility to eliminate the threat.”
6ix9ine is still awaiting trial.
