Tekashi 6ix9ine's Attorney Concerned Rapper's Life Will Be At Risk Post-House Arrest

Publish date:

The attorney for rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine has expressed his concerns for his client -- as his house arrest is due to come to an end at the end of July.

"I'm concerned," Dawn Florio, one of his lawyers, told The NY Post. "Lots of people condemn Danny for cooperating with the government. Even a young gang member who wants to make a name for himself could try something. He's in great spirits but I won't rest easy until he's located in a different state with 24-hour security."

Since 6ix9ine's release from prison, he has targeted several high profile rappers from his secret location. But the police protection is not forever -- and fans are waiting to see if the rapper can move freely when the protection ends.

She continued, "I assumed he was a dead man walking as soon as he got out," an attorney for one of the 11 Nine Trey Bloods that Tekashi helped send to prison told The Post. "But the fans are glorifying him. It used to be that a rat was the worst thing you could be . . . It's not very 'God­father' ish out there anymore."
