6ix9ine's shot at an early prison release was denied by a New York judge on Wednesday (March 25).
"The Court is constrained to deny Mr. Hernandez's request," reads the judge's order obtained by Billboard. "Having canvassed potential sources of legal authority, the Court concludes that it lacks the legal authority to thus modify his sentence."
The "Gummo" rapper -- born Daniel Hernandez -- sought to be released because of the rapid spread of the coronavirus in prison. Hernandez has a history of medical issues, including asthma, bronchitis and sinusitis.
