Tekashi 6ix9ine has been keeping a low profile since he was released from prison earlier this month. The Dummy Boy rapper is reportedly working on two albums during home confinement and is now asking for permission to film music videos in the backyard of his home.

“I am writing today only to request the Court’s approval to permit Mr. Hernandez to spend up to two hours in his backyard, once a week, for employment purposes only,” his lawyer Lance Lazzaro wrote. “He is looking to record music videos in his backyard. Probation is aware and has no objection to this request.”

6ix9ine was released from prison four months early due to COVID-19 rapidly spreading throughout the prisons. A judge allowed the “FEFE” rapper to be released because of his preexisting asthma diagnosis. Since his release, he has reportedly been splurging on cars and jewelry.

According to TMZ, the MC has purchased a fleet of new vehicles, such as a Range Rover, McLaren, Rolls-Royce, Mercedes Benz G-Wagon and an Aventador. He also bought a Richard Mille watch and shark chain that is valued at around $300,000.

Back in October, 6ix9ine signed a $10 million record deal with 10K Projects while he was in prison. The deal requires him to record two studio albums.

“What he’s gonna do is, he already has that advance for 10K Projects,” his attorney Dawn Florio previously told Complex. “So, he has to put out a Spanish album and an English album. So that’s what he’s going to be working on.”

Although the “STOOPID” rapper has to remain on home confinement until August, he is already receiving booking offers for concerts. Venues in Australia, Saudi Arabia, South America and Europe have offered the rapper close to $500,000 per show and are looking to book him late this year or next year.
