The attorney of Tekashi 6ix9ine has said that the rapper will be back to recording music as soon as he is released from prison on August 2.

"He has been writing music there," Lance Lazzaro told HollywoodLife. "I don't know the details but I know he has been writing. He's going to go right back to making music [when he's out]. He hasn't decided where he will live at this stage but he's going to make albums again."

Tekashi was sentenced to 24 months in prison after pleading guilty to nine counts of federal racketeering, weapons-related offenses, and conspiracy. His sentence was considerably lesser than those of his peers as he turned state's evidence against them to secure a short sentence.

A spokesperson from the Bureau of Prisons' Public Affairs department told Complex that "[W]e can confirm, Inmate Hernandez has a projected release date of August 2, 2020 -- The reason why he's getting released early is because he's the perfect model prisoner," she said.
