Should the stars align, 6ix9ine could be a free man come 2020.
According to a new report, 6ix9ine's legal team is looking to spring the rapper faster than you can say "itsyourboyAkademiksandcheckitout" in an Henny-soaked cadence. Popular personality Akademiks himself returned to his familiar pulpit, which is to say YouTube, to deliver a detailed update on his formerly-rainbow-headed homie Tekashi 6ix9ine.
While an uncomfortable video of 6ix9ine making out with his girlfriend plays for an endless length, Ak explains that much misconception has circulated where the rapper's plea deal is concerned. Essentially, Ak rattles off some of the expectations prosecutors have for 6ix9ine, which essentially equates to speaking freely on the bigger fish. He also cites some of 6ix9ine's motivations behind keeping Lance Lazarro in the fold, despite a possible conflict of interest. "[Lazarro] is the guy who made sure [6ix9ine] didn't get years after he got found violating probation in the child sex case," says Ak.

"6ix9ine's lawyer, after the hearing, spoke to Complex," continues Ak. "6ix9ine is holding up very well, and basically will be testifying if needed - so basically if anybody goes to trial he'll be testifying if needed - he's hoping that n***as don't go to trial. Think about 6ix9ine on a stand and people getting pictures of that. That will haunt him forever."
But this is the new development," Ak continues. "Both of the lawyers would advocate for 6ix9ine to be sentenced to only time served, when he comes to his sentencing on January 24th, 2020. Which means, if the case is resolved and nobody takes it to trial, and nobody pleads out before November, 6ix9ine will be able to go into court, and his lawyers will say we believe he's helped the US government so well, he should get no jail time and he should get out on time served." Should the judge feel like the assessment is fair, 6ix9ine could be a free man as soon as February 2020. Of course, it's entirely possible that the court decides against it, in which case 6ix9ine will be resigned to his original fate. How do you think this one will unfold?
