Tekashi 6ix9ine‘s co-defendant Kooda B has been granted temporary release as the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread.
Kintea “Kooda B” McKenzie was released from custody on March 30, 2020. Kooda B’s lawyer, Lisa Scolari, requested he be released on bond as COVID-19 becomes a looming problem for prisons due to his asthma. According to Complex, Scolari asked the judge for her client to be released on the same $300,000 bond he was originally released on last year, claiming he’s had to use his inhaler as recent as last month.
Kooda B pleaded guilty to assault with a dangerous weapon in the Tekashi 6ix9ine case, in connection with the shooting targeting Chicago rapper Chief Keef in Times Square although he previously denied involvement.
Tekashi 6ix9ine himself requested to be released as the coronavirus pandemic continues due to his asthma. Unfortunately for him, the request was denied and he and his attorney were directed to other channels. The Brooklyn-bred rapper is scheduled for release in August 2020.
