After testifying against two alleged members of the Nine Trey Bloods, 6ix9ine will forgo witness protection to restart his music career, TMZ reports.

News of the 23-year-old rapper’s plans to reenter the music business arrives as he recently snitched on his old gang members as well as other celebrities in order to receive a shortened prison sentence. Prior to cooperating with prosecutors, 6ix9ine was facing a minimum sentence of 47 years behind bars.

Instead of entering witness protection, 6ix9ine will reportedly hire 24/7 security for himself and his family. Per TMZ, the rapper feels that he will be out of prison in 2020 to resume his music career.
