4:15 PM PT: The Blast has obtained a photo of Tekashi69 in handcuffs Thursday while inside the courtroom.
The rainbow haired rapper just appeared in court after being picked up by police on a warrant out of Texas, and told a judge that he acknowledges he's been "irresponsible" while his mother openly wept.
The "Gotti" star lamented to the court that back home he has a non-working mother and a two-year-old daughter, clearly trying to gain sympathy from the judge and get released from custody. Unfortunately his bail was denied.
It was mentioned by the prosecutor that 6ix9ine is a flight risk, which weighed into the court's decision to keep him locked up. The star's mother was inconsolable during the hearing after learning her son would not be released.
He will remain behind bars until officials from Harris County, TX come to NYC and pick him up on the misdemeanor assault warrant.
