It's looking likely that Tekashi 6ix9ine could be released from prison later today, as Judge Paul Engelmayer has officially stated that he is "inclined" to offer compassionate relief to the Brooklyn rapper.

In a wild turn of events, the Judge presiding over Tekashi 6ix9ine's case appears to be willing to grant his release from prison later today. In a series of tweets by Inner City Press, who has been providing live courtroom updates on the matter for months, it was revealed that after the Bureau of Prisons denied 6ix9ine's release this week, a second appeal was filed and the Court intends to grant it.

False reports have started to circulate regarding the release of Tekashi 6ix9ine and, although that may happen later today, it would not become official before 5 PM. 

"The Court directs that the Government respond by 5 pm. The parties are advised that, provided the Court has authority to grant the relief requested by defense counsel, the Court intends to do so," reports Inner City Press. Unless the Judge is pulling an epic April Fool's Day prank, it looks like 69 will actually be getting out.

The rapper's first appeal was reportedly turned down because he had not consulted with the Bureau of Prisons but, after being denied by the BOP, the Judge is now inclined to release 6ix9ine pending the US Attorney's official opposition of the order.
