Tekashi 6ix9ine is desperate to leave prison and his attorney has written a letter to the judge, informing them that the rapper has a pre-existing condition that puts him more at risk if he catches coronavirus.
The rapper, who is serving time on nine counts of federal charges, has asked through his lawyer for an early release because he is a high risk for serious and potentially life-threatening symptoms from the virus.
6ix9ine’s attorney, Lance Lazzaro, wrote a letter to the judge Sunday night citing serious concerns for Tekashi’s wellbeing behind bars. Lazzaro says Tekashi suffers from asthma, making catching coronavirus a greater risk for him, and he wants him out ASAP.
In the letter obtained by TMZ Lazzaro also reveals Tekashi was diagnosed with bronchitis and sinusitis late last year and was hospitalized for treatment.
According to Lazzaro, the rapper has recently had shortness of breath, but prison officials won’t let him see a doctor.
Tekashi has only a few months left of his 24-month sentence but Lazzaro says Tekashi can’t risk staying locked up any longer as his life is on the line.
