Tekashi 6ix9ine has received the green light to shoot music videos in his backyard. According to Complex, Judge Paul A. Engelmayer has included the rapper’s backyard into his house arrest guidelines so that he can film videos for work.

Earlier this month, the “FEFE” rapper requested the expansion shortly after he was released from prison early.

“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 attorney Lance Lazzaro wrote to the judge. “He is looking to record music videos in his backyard. Probation is aware and has no objection to this request.”

Tekashi was released from prison almost four months early to avoid contracting Coronavirus. The MC reportedly has a preexisting asthma diagnosis. Since his release, the rapper has been splurging on expensive cars and jewelry.

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

Back in October, he 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 later this year or next year.
