Tekashi69 was transferred to a new facility after being “gangsta checked” by several Crips. According to TMZ, Tekashi—a known member of the 9 Trey Gangsta Bloods—was confronted by inmates who are affiliated with the rival gang. The rapper was told that he better understand who was in charge and before a fight could ensue, prison staffers intervened.
While the new facility is known for criminals who have cut deals, Tekashi’s attorney, Lance Lazzaro, said that even though his client was being threatened in jail, he did not request to be transferred. All the 22-year-old asked was that he be in a unit away from Crips and Bloods.
