(AllHipHop News) Tekashi 6ix9ine's lawyers earned their paychecks today because they have managed to get the incarcerated rap star bail.
6ix9ine is currently cooling his heels behind bars on Rikers Island, after cops arrested him at JFK Airport on Wednesday (July 11), as he returned home from a tour of Europe.
The Brooklyn rapper was wanted on a warrant out of Houston, Texas and blew off a court date in regards to the matter, in favor of going on tour.
The rap star was sent to Rikers Island, where he was placed in the Contagious Disease Unit, to avoid other inmates for his own safety, since he is a celebrity.
6ix9ine will be freed as soon as he posts $150,000 bail, the rapper will have to fly out to Harris County, Texas, where he will be required to post another $5,000.
The troubles for the rapper started in early January when he was caught on camera choking and slapping a 16-year-old who would not stop filming him during a meet and greet at the Galleria Mall in Houston.
