When 6ix9ine's 24-month sentence is up, the rapper might be at greater risk than he is behind bars, as many of his former bodyguards have said they would never work for the rapper again, according to TMZ

Prior to his prison sentence, the rapper had increased his security team to include several members, and he was regularly seen with as many as five at any given time. Now, many of his former bodyguards have told TMZ they felt they were placed in harm's way due to his gang associations before he went to prison. Now that the rapper's reputation also includes that of an informant after he testified against his formerly fellow Nine Trey gang members, the bodyguards say that no amount of money would persuade them to return to the job after 6ix9ine's release.

Earlier this week, the rapper filed a formal request to serve the rest of his sentence at home over safety concerns, with documents from his attorney Lance Lazzaro alleging the rapper “is still, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, seriously at risk," after cooperating with the government during his trial.

6ix9ine was found guilty on racketeering and firearms charges but was able to lessen the mandatory 47-year minimum prison sentence to only two years by testifying against other Nine Trey members.
