Tekashi 69 was recently released from prison due to the possible risk of catching COVID-19. Ever since his dismissal he has been seeking permission to shoot his music video.
Just last week his lawyer wrote a letter to the judge asking to grant the 23-year-old’s rapper request. Today Judge Paul A. Engelmayer has approved for the music video to be made. The judge expanded the radius of his house arrest so that this could be done.
As a part of the agreement the judge is allowing Tekashi 2 hours per week in his backyard with approval of his PO. He was also granted 8 hours a day in his basement recording studio, which also requires permission from his probation officer.
Per the judge’s order:
The defendant is permitted to conduct employment-related activities outside the residence but within the confines of the rented property for two (2) hours per week on one (1) specific day that needs advanced approval by the Probation Officer. Given structural interference with the GPS tracking device, the defendant’s hours in the basement of the residence will be limited to no more than an 8-hour period per day with a schedule as determined by the Releasee and approved by the Probation Officer. The Clerk of Court is requested to terminate the motion at Dkt. No. 475.
Well, now that his request was granted looks like he will be putting out some new music. He recently posted to his Instagram story saying ‘You ready? May 8th”. Who knows maybe we will see what he was so eager to get approved by the court.
