Tekashi 6ix9ine surprised many with the revelation that he plans to continue his music career instead of entering witness protection. It appears that decision is paying off already — at least financially. The rapper, who's still in prison, reportedly secured a $10 million record record deal from his former label, 10K projects.

The deal is reportedly for two albums, one in English and one in Spanish, according to TMZ.

6ix9ine is expected to get out of prison some time in 2020 because of his role in prosecuting fellow members of the Nine Trey Blood members. He was facing up a 47-year minimum sentence.
