Another day, another Tekashi 6ix9ine controversy. 

 

The controversial rapper reportedly had a court date today, Tuesday, April 10, and risked spending three years behind bars, but he didn't show up, according to HotNewHipHop.

 

As of now, there's no official update on what exactly happened, 6ix9ine cleared his entire Instagram of posts and dropped a new track titled "GOTTI."

 

The lone Instagram post that remains on his page is a note from his management team. The statement read: "TEKASHI WONT BE BACK UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. HE'S DECIDED TO RELEASE THE OFFICIAL AUDIO TO GOTTI TODAY FOR YOU GUYS, LINK IS IN HIS BIO."

The reason for the social media clearout isn't known, but it could have been used against him in court. The statement continued: "WE'LL UPDATE YOU GUYS ON HIS BEHALF FOR THE TIME BEING. GO LISTEN TO GOTTI NOW! LINK IN HIS BIO. HE LOVES YOU GUYS!"

 

It looks like his court date didn't go well, and Tekashi might be facing jail time. In a video he uploaded on Monday he told his fans, "Yo, so I got court tomorrow. And I want everybody to put me in their prayers. Hopefully, we come out on top. GED is done. Everything is done. But you never know what the judge is gonna say, so I want everybody to say a prayer. Hopefully, I could say whats up to Y'all tomorrow." 

 

Tekashi also shared a lone tweet on Tuesday that read: "#Free69."

MANAGEMENT: TEKASHI WONT BE BACK UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. HES DECIDED TO RELEASE THE OFFICIAL AUDIO TO GOTTI TODAY FOR YOU GUYS, LINK IS IN HIS BIO. WELL UPDATE YOU GUYS ON HIS BEHALF FOR THE TIME BEING. GO LISTEN TO GOTTI NOW! LINK IN HIS BIO. HE LOVES YOU GUYS!
