6ix9ine record deal isn't the only thing being reported, according to reports 6ix9ine has already contacted NY producers.

The 23-year-old rapper, real name Daniel Hernandez, is now incarcerated while awaiting sentencing this year on multiple racketeering charges after his original 2020 date was brought forward. Tekashi just reportedly signed a $10 million record deal with 10K Projects for two albums once he's released from prison, TMZ reports.

Daniel Hernandez, a.k.a. Tekashi 6ix9ine, appears at his arraignment in Manhattan Criminal Court on Wednesday, July 11, 2018.

And that's not all.

Page Six said 6ix9ine has been reaching out to music producers, as per a music industry source. His testimony led to Anthony "Harv" Ellison and Aljermiah "Nuke" Mack being found guilty on a cumulative total of five charges. In fact, while acknowledging that his former gang may very well try to go after him in the free world, he said he has no interest in going into witness protection.

NY has been off since October 7, so they will have a big pitching advantage, rest wise, over the Houston Astros in this series. The Astros got off to quick 4-0 start in Game Five and never looked back as they now prepare for the New York Yankees.

Tekashi's decision to testify against his former associates - and detail the inner workings of the gang in front of a judge and jury - has earned him some backlash, with other rappers like Snoop Dogg publicly branding him a snitch.

However, other reports have suggested that Tekashi has no intention of keeping a low profile once he's served his time.

Page Six previously reported that Tekashi is planning on making new music.

6ix9ine's sentencing was initially set for January 23, 2020, however, according to Billboard, it has been pushed forward to Wednesday, Dec. 18, 2019.
