In his first official Instagram post since 2018, Tekashi 6ix9ine shared with his 15.3 million followers that read simply, “IM GOING LIVE FRIDAY 3:00 PM EST.” “Lets get this party started,” he wrote in the caption. “Don’t get scared now.”

6ix9ine was granted a “compassionate release” from the Queens Detention Facility in early April. He’s working on two new albums — one in Spanish and another in English — and plans to drop a music video soon.  The 23-year-old was granted permission to film in his backyard for two hours per week and record new music in a home studio for up to eight hours every day.

Fans can tune into 6ix9ine’s Instagram Live on Friday, May 8, beginning at 3 p.m. EST.
