Tekashi 6ix9ine is officially releasing his album, Dummy Boy, on Tuesday because, sources say, the rapper is in desperate need of cash to pay off his legal team.
Hip Hop DJ Akademiks announced the album, titled Dummy Boy, will be released on Tuesday, Nov. 27, to major streaming outlets for downloads.
Tekashi, who was born Daniel Hernandez, was arrested on Nov. 18 on federal racketeering and firearms charges. He was denied bond during a court appearance on Monday, Nov. 26. Hernandez will remain in jail until his trial in September 2019.
During an initial court appearance on Nov 19, Hernandez's attorney offered Hernandez’s cash assets in the amount of $1.7 million as collateral for his bond.
But a booking agency claims $800,000 of that money was a cash advance to Hernandez for a concert tour. The agency, MTA Booking, wants the cash returned since Hernandez is unable to meet his contractual obligations to go on tour.
Hernandez's legal fees are piling up quickly. It's not a stretch to say he will probably owe his attorneys close to a million dollars to represent him in a federal case.
Hernandez probably hopes his fans will download the album to put enough money on his books and to pay off his legal fees.
