Tekashi69 is a free man. The rapper's lawyers were able to spring him from Rikers Island a day after he had been denied bail.
He had been locked up since Wednesday after authorities arrested him on a warrant out of Houston. He's accused of choking a 16-year old boy at the Galleria mall in January.
TMZ reports that Tekashi's legal team got prosecutors in Houston to agree to a bail amount and then, during an emergency hearing in NYC, a judge granted him $150,000 bail there, which he promptly paid.
The 22-year old Brooklyn rapper, born Daniel Hernandez, must now surrender to Houston authorities on Monday in order to pay $5000 bail there.
Tekashi immediately made an Instagram video celebrating his freedom and thanking his team.
