Tekashi 69 Has Been Transferred To Rikers Island, Judge Calls Him A Flight Risk

Brooklyn rapper, Tekashi 69, has been transferred to Rikers Island aka the Contagious Disease Unit. According to TMZ police feel this will keep the rapper in ‘good health’.

Law enforcement says that 6ix 9ine was sent to a 140-cell portion of Rikers. The area of the jail is mainly used to house inmates battling illness. It’s also used to hold celebrity inmates and high profile inmates, for their own safety.

Tekashi 69 is currently being held in isolation and will have no contact with other inmates, even during recreation time.

The 22-year-old rapper was denied bail Thursday after the judge considered him a flight risk.
