The NYPD plan on extraditing the rapper to Houston. 

His team claims that they were aware of the warrant and planned to deal with it accordingly.

Tekashi's team also claim that the NYPD should not have arrested him for a misdemeanor charge. They were not fans of the extradition. 

In February, Tekashi69 — who admitted to groping a 13-year-old girl and allied to street gangs including the Bloods — was caught getting into a brawl outside LAX.
