It seems like Tekashi 6ix9ine, 23, isn’t letting prison stop his creative juices from flowing. The rapper’s lawyer, New York attorney Lance Lazzaro, spoke EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife about how he’s continued to make music a priority while serving out his 24-month sentence and that he’s already planning to get right back into recording when he’s released on July 31.

“He has been writing music there,” he EXCLUSIVELY told us about Tekashi, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, and how he’s spending time in prison. “I don’t know the details but I know he has been writing. He’s going to go right back to making music [when he’s out]. He hasn’t decided where he will live at this stage but he’s going to make albums again.”

Lance also admitted that although Tekashi has been in prison since Nov. 2018, he’s not letting it get him down and as his release date gets closer and closer, he’s looking forward to the future. “He’s in good spirits, he’ll be home in 4 months, so he’s in good spirits,” he said. He also commented on his safety and explained that due to the nature of the case he was involved in, he’s going to make sure to have himself protected when he’s finally able to return home. “He’s going to be careful and he is going to have security at all times,” he said.

Tekashi was first arrested on firearms and racketeering charges in Nov. 2018 and initially faced 47 years in prison before he cut a deal and agreed to plead guilty to nine charges and testify for the prosecution against his former crew, the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods. He was officially sentenced to 24 months in jail, which included the time he already served starting in Nov. 2018, 300 hours of community service, and a $35,000 fine in Dec. 2019. On Jan. 21, his girlfriend Jade, revealed the news that he requested to serve the rest of his prison sentence at home but was denied.
