Perhaps Irv Gotti was right. The former Murder Inc. boss predicted to TMZ that music fans are so fickle that they’ll accept disgraced snitch Tekashi 6ix9ine back into the fold when the memory of him ratting out all his criminal friends — and then some — fades like the morning mist.
Apparently, Tekashi’s former music label feels the same way Gotti does. Tekashi just reportedly signed a $10 million record deal with 10K Projects for two albums once he’s released from prison, TMZ reports.
The deal includes a project that will be done in English while the other will come out in Spanish.
No word as to how the deal will be impacted if 6ix9ine is given a long prison sentence.
As rolling out reported previously, Tekashi testified against his former associates and Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods members Anthony “Harv” Ellison and Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack, detailing the many felony crimes they allegedly committed. Tekashi, 23, who was born Daniel Hernandez, even named fellow musicians Cardi B and Jim Jones among others as having gang ties.
Tekashi has been excoriated nationwide, particularly by the likes of Snoop Dogg, The Game and 50 Cent, for his alleged traitorous acts.
But Gotti predicted that Tekashi would emerge unscathed, and this record deal seems to prove him right.
Moreover, Page Six reported that the rapper purchased new beats and plans to record music upon his release.
It remains to be seen how all this will play out during Tekashi’s upcoming sentencing hearing. He pleaded guilty to racketeering and eight other felony crimes and was staring at a half-century behind bars before he snitched on his former friends.
