Sources claim that the incarcerated 23-year-old rapper has inked a multi-million dollar deal with his former label from prison.
Tekashi 6ix9ine has reportedly scored a multi-million dollar record deal - from jail.
The 23-year-old rapper, real name Daniel Hernandez, is currently incarcerated while awaiting sentencing this year on multiple racketeering charges after his original 2020 date was brought forward.
According to TMZ, the 'GUMMO' spitter is already preparing his musical comeback after signing a record deal worth more than $10 million with his former label, 10K Projects.
Once Hernandez is out of prison, he will reportedly get the money in return for putting out two studio albums - one in English and one in Spanish.
In addition to the alleged deal news, an anonymous music industry source told Page Six, "It looks like he will be making music right away when he comes home."
"He already contacted a young NYC producer, and someone purchased two beats for him." Last month, it was reported that 6ixi9ine believes he will be more popular than ever once he's released from prison.
Hernandez has been widely criticised by the Hip-Hop community for cooperating with the police following his arrest at the end of last year, earning the label of "snitch" for disclosing information on his former Nine Trey Blood associates.
He was initially facing a 47-year minimum sentence.
