Tekashi 6ix9ine has been ordered to attend a mental health program upon his release from prison by a federal court judge.

The "Gummo" rapper, who was sentenced to 24 months in prison last week and five years supervised release, must also continue to cooperate with the U.S. Attorney's Office after he is released from prison in additional ongoing investigations according to TMZ.

This means that the rapper's snitching days may not be over as the feds can pull him in to cooperate anytime they see fit.

The rapper could be out in less than eight months, as the 24 months will include the months 13 he has already served behind bars. It was speculated that the rapper would be released in time for Christmas, but the judge did not feel like he qualified for such an early release.

"I cannot agree with your counsel that time served [is] appropriate," Judge Engelmayer told Tekashi in court last Wednesday. "In my judgment, your conduct is too violent and selfish to make 13 months reasonable. You will not be going free today."
