UPDATE: 6ix9ine's girlfriend, Jade, shared a video in celebration of the artist's freedom.

Real name Rachel Wattley, she took to Instagram late Thursday to tell her followers that she still has her man's back. With 6ix9ine's "Kika" playing in the background, she browses the rapper's collection of record plaques.

"Your King Is Back," she wrote in the caption. She also added a quip about his early release from prison: "And no, he didn't rat guys 🙄 he just spoke a lil ;-p 😜."

Jade and 6ix9ine started dating shortly before he was incarcerated in 2018.

ORIGINAL: 6ix9ine is slowly falling back into his old trolling habits.

Roughly a week after being released from prison early, 6ix9ine has updated his Instagram bio with a couple of (hopefully) sarcastic questions: "Why everybody callin me a snitch? I'm missing something ...? 🤔"

To find the answer, look no further than 6ix9ine's recent federal trial where he testified against several members of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods and offered a book's worth of detailed background about the gang's inner workings.

The Brooklyn rapper was initially facing 47 years to life in prison after pleading guilty to nine counts in his criminal case, but he struck a cooperation deal and ended up being sentenced to just two years for racketeering.

By giving himself up to the law, he was breaking one of the most important rules of gang affiliation: secrecy. Many responded by calling him a "snitch" or a "rat."

6ix9ine further alluded to this title by changing the profile photo on his IG account. Visitors will now see 6ix9ine in animated form laying back in a rat trap while eating cheese and wearing a jail jumpsuit. This same character also appeared on the cover of his DUMMY BOY album.

Before switching his profile bio and profile picture, the 23-year-old restarted his trolling in the comments of an Instagram post from The Shade Room.

"Los Angeles' Mayor Is Offering 'Rewards' For Snitching On Businesses Violating The City's Stay-At-Home Order," the headline of the post read.

In response, 6ix9ine offered up his well-established services. "Coming to the rescue," he wrote, marking his first public comment since exiting prison early due to the threat of coronavirus.

While 6ix9ine serves the rest of his sentence under home confinement, he won't have to follow any social media restrictions, per attorney Lance Lazzaro and TMZ. But, he'll apparently refrain from starting any beefs and "will use his discretion and common sense."

Wonder how long those guidelines will hold up...
