After using avenues like his Instagram bio and the comments section of Tory Lanez's Quarantine Radio to troll the public, 6ix9ine shared his first IG Story since leaving prison and being placed under house arrest earlier this month. 👀

“YOU READY? 🤪 MAY 8TH,” he wrote to his over 15 million followers on Wednesday, teasing the forthcoming date that doubles as his 24th birthday.

Perhaps 6ix9ine was just waiting for the go-ahead to shoot videos and (legally) use his recording studio because earlier in the day, Judge Paul Engelmayer, the same New York judge who approved his compassionate release request, reportedly granted him permission to perform both of these activities.

There are a few restrictions, though. 6ix9ine can only shoot videos in his backyard for two hours per week on one specific day approved by his probation officer. In terms of recording music, he can spend up to eight hours per day in his basement studio, but those sessions must also be approved by his PO.

Though it’s unclear what Friday, May 8th, will bring, 6ix9ine signed a record deal with 10K projects for over $10 million in Oct. 2019 and is contracted to record two new albums – one in English and one in Spanish.

One of his attorneys, Dawn Florio, confirmed several weeks ago that he's been paid "an advance for all those millions of dollars" and is allowed to release new music.

There was also a brief leak of an unheard track rumored to be titled “BENTLY” that recently surfaced, further fueling speculation around an album rollout. No additional details were available.
