Tekashi 6ix9ine got some good news while locked up in prison, as a $5 million dollar lawsuit against him has been dropped.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the concert promoter informed a Federal Court judge that he was voluntarily dismissing all claims against Tekashi and other defendants including the rapper’s cohort Shotti.

6ix9ine had never responded to the allegations in the lawsuit. He is clearly dealing with much bigger issues keeping him in prison. Back in December, a concert promoter named Benhur Tesfalidet sued Tekashi 6ix9ine seeking over $300,000 in damages. The suit claimed Tekashi 6ix9ine was booked to perform a show during Howard Homecoming Weekend in October 2018. The rapper was paid a total of $60,000 and sold $165,336 in presale tickets and $30,300 on VIP tables alone.

The problem was 6ix9ine failed to show up despite fans waiting outside the venue for hours. They said thousands were furious when they found out he was a no-show and they feared a riot would go down outside.

The promoter claimed the rapper’s managers were no help on the date in question. He said fans were so harsh with him he had to deactivate his social media accounts.

Tekashi is currently behind bars in an undisclosed federal facility and has been cooperating with authorities who are investigating the 9 Trey Bloods for a series of robberies and shootings in New York City.

The rapper was taken into custody back in November and has been there ever since. His album, Dummy Boy, leaked while he was in prison.
