Tekashi69 is facing a maximum of 47 years in prison for a slew of felony charges including racketeering, conspiracy, firearm offenses and narcotics trafficking. By the way, those are all charges that he plead guilty to. Now, the story is that he has cooperated with the authorities and the US Attorney in the Southern District of NYC is not going to prosecute 69 on many of those charges. What's that mean? It means that he's not going to spend as much time in prison. On the flip side of that, some people are calling him a snitch. That leads to the 2nd part of this whole story.
When Tekashi gets out of prison he MAY be put into witness protection. Yes, the guy in the picture may get a new identity.
Now, I'm no expert on how witness protection works but I don't see how this guy is going to be easy to hide, ANYWHERE! Sure, you can take out the rainbow grill and change his hair BUT he literally has 69 tattooed on his face. And that's just one of his face tats. He also has a very distinct voice and a personality that doesn't exactly scream that he's a "lay low" kind of guy. I wish nothing but the best of luck to the law enforcement officials that are in charge of placing him into a community where he won't be found.
