Report exclusive to TMZ has it that the life of 22-year-old New York rapper, Tekashi might has just been endangered as he was placed in general population at the Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention center.
TMZ learnt of the development through Tekashi’s lawyer, Lance Lazzaro.
The MDC is notoriously brutal, with inmates that are “extremely dangerous, violent, or escape-prone,” according to the U.S. Justice Department.
There’s also this, prosecutors expressed Monday, just how much of a target Tekashi had been prior to his arrest this weekend. One prosecutor told a judge ex-members of Tekashi’s crew “wanted to super violate him” following his appearance on the ‘Breakfast Club’, where he accused his inner circle of turning on him.
The prosecutor, Michael Longyear, said ‘super violate‘ meant inflict harm on Tekashi, including possibly shooting him. He said they took Tekashi in after learning he was planning a trip to a Connecticut casino, and feared an attempt on his life could put innocent people in jeopardy.
As for the rapper getting placed in gen pop, Lazzaro thinks Tekashi will be fine. His scheduled bail hearing for Tuesday was pushed to Wednesday since the judge was unavailable.
