Tekashi’s latest news appears to contradict his recent Instagram post, where he took a picture outside of court after his Texas court appearance.
At the time, he wrote: “Just went to court. It was good.”
The New York rapper handed himself over to authorities in Texas after promising to pay a $5000 bail to the court.
According to TMZ, Tekashi is set for another court hearing on Friday and the misdemeanour he was accused of, carries a maximum of 1 year in jail.
