- Rapper, Tekashi 6ix9ine, is in the midst of a highly publicized trial involving his role in the Nine Trey gang.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Rapper, Tekashi 6ix9ine, has become the center of attention in the hip-hop world as his highly publicized trial continues to reveal more details about his involvement in Brooklyn based gang, Nine Trey. The rapper has garnered so much public attention that fans can now bet on the fate of the rapper.
As Tekashi, whose birth name is Daniel Hernandez, stood trial to testify against gang members he was involved with, the names of other celebrities began to be brought up. From retired rapper, Jim Jones, to current rap star, Cardi B, Hernandez’s testimonials have earned him a reputation as a “snitch”. Per terms of his agreement to cooperate with federal agents, Tekashi could be out of prison as early as next year as time served. The only logical question left to ask is whether Tekashi will actually perform a live concert in 2020?
Tekashi 6ix9ine Betting Odds
According to the US online sportsbook Bovada, the odds are not in his favor to perform. The current moneyline is -140 for “No” and EVEN for “Yes”. And honestly speaking, it seems about right. Rumors about what Hernandez will have to deal with once he’s out of prison would be enough to scare most performers a while. Still, 6ix9ine has insisted he will continue his music career as normal once he’s released and will continue life as usual.

Threats against the rapper’s life, however, were strong enough to warrant Tekashi being offered to be placed into the witness protection program once he’s free. He reportedly refused said offer and instead will opt for 24/7 security as he continues his life in music after incarceration.
Even if Tekashi wished to resume his music career, it would be difficult to imagine which venues (if any at all) would take on the security threat of his performance. On the other hand, it's possible the rapper could use the publicized trial to spearhead his music career even further. Most entertainers will agree to the old adage that “there’s no such thing as bad press”.
