While some of the hip hop world has canceled Tekashi 69, there are people out there who still believe in him.

While Tekashi 69 is behind bars on federal racketeering charges, 10K Projects Records offered him a two-album extension, 10 million dollar deal.

10 k project CEO Elliot Grainge told Variety “he doesn’t believe the move to be a ‘second chance,’ but rather a more pragmatically phrased ‘opportunity.’”

“He is an addictive, charismatic human being — and very intelligent, but he made some unfortunate choices regarding the people he surrounded himself with. Knowing him like I do, since he was [called] Daniel Hernandez, I wouldn’t be doing a good job as a human, let alone a label head, if I didn’t try to help him. I’m not giving 6ix9ine a second chance, just an opportunity. The rest is up to him. The artist himself has to make those choices.”

It’s possible Tekashi will be home in a few weeks!

Will you still listen to his music?
