Tekashi 6ix9ine was feeling like a zillion dollars upon his release. The controversial rapper reportedly won over the judge in his 3rd attempt, scoring a $150,000 bond and his immediate release. Judge Ann Scherzer reportedly "acknowledged a significant change in circumstances” before changing her tune, so the record states.

6ix9ine jumped on Instagram live to celebrate his release from the backseat of his chauffeured ride overlooking New York. Tekashi kept yelling, "Why my City do me like that?" Was he close to becoming shark food? Or were we witness to a good old case of mistaken identity, one in which the worker bees inadvertently overthrow their King.

After revellling for more than a minute, Tekashi thanked his attorneys for laying down the law in record time. He then turned his attention over to his family whom he sorely missed while he was out in Europe on a diplomatic run.

For now, New Yorkers can breathe easier knowing he's back in one piece. He will eventually be asked to appear in a Texas courthouse for his assault charge. Lest we forget the where and how: a shopping mall of all places. As lucky as luck can be, Tekashi still holds the mighty trump card, and the best lawyers money can buy.
