Hoping to avoid another night behind bars, rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine begged a Manhattan judge to grant him bail Thursday.
The facially-tattooed rhymer was picked up at JFK on a Texas warrant for skipping out on a court date to face charges that he’d choked a fan.
“I’ve been very remorseful for my lack of responsibility. In the short time I’ve been incarcerated, I’ve learned my lesson to be more respectful,” said Tekashi, who looked terrified at the prospect of a return to the slammer.
“I was not very responsible knowing it was that serious of a warrant for a misdemeanor,” he said, admitting that he opted to go on a European tour instead of showing up for the court date.
But Justice Ann Scherzer refused to release him and shot back sternly, “Even though you think it’s just a misdemeanor, it’s a crime.”
The Bedford Stuyvesant native addressed the jurist directly after his defense lawyer, Ian Niles, was unable to persuade her.
The attorney had argued Wednesday that his client “will be in great danger because of his fame if he’s incarcerated.”
Tekashi didn’t fight his extradition and will have to cool his heels in lock up until July 20 when Texas authorities are slated to pick him up.
Cops nabbed The 22-year-old Wednesday morning when he landed at the airport on his way back from a tour stop in Bosnia.
The rapper, who rose to prominence with the hit “Gummo,” has an open case in Brooklyn for allegedly assaulting a cop last May.
In 2015, he took a sweetheart plea deal in Manhattan for posting a video on Instagram of him and a pal molesting a 13-year-old girl.
He pleaded guilty to one count of the use of a child in a sexual performance in exchange for a deferred probation-only sentence.
