Tekashi 6ix9ine Considered Suicide In Prison

Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine says he considered suicide when he was in jail after snitching on his co-defendants.

“The pressure is so strong. Mentally, I think people would have attempted suicide. At a point in jail, I thought about it. It’s so much stress, so much pressure, because you’re seeing yourself on the news every day -- this, that and a third, when is this going to come to an end?” he said during the interview.

“With the asthma and the coronavirus, I caught bronchitis once and two asthma attacks in prison. When I caught bronchitis, they sent me to the hospital and the doctor said, ‘What’s going on in that jail? Why is it so cold in that jail?’ I remember, I’m handcuffed … to the bed.”

Tekashi is on a promotional tour to try and boost his album sales -- according to reports he won't make it to number one this week.
