Looks like Tekashi 6ix9ine is in some deep sh*t.
Following a social media post and interview on The Breakfast Club radio show, where he claimed he had fired his whole team (including manager Shottie), the rapper, Shottie, and two former associates were taken into federal custody on racketeering charges.
According to TMZ, ATF agents picked up 6ix9ine and his associates on Sunday night (Nov. 18) in New York City.
All four men are facing racketeering and firearms charges, following a joint effort by ATF, NYPD and Homeland Security.
The 17-page indictment says 6ix9ine is facing six counts, including a charge of discharging a firearm while committing a crime, which carries a possible life sentence, and a mandatory minimum of 25 years in prison, reports the New York Daily News.
The rapper’s ex-manager, Shottie, is facing the same six counts.
Furthermore, the acts of violence were intended to protect the gang’s drug biz, retaliate against rival gangs or promote Nine Trey Bloods, say prosecutors.
6ix9ine, alongside his Shottie and two others, are believed to have pulled off an armed robbery on April 3 against rival gang members. In another incident, taking place on July 16, the rapper and his three co-defendants conspired to kill “an individual who had shown disrespect to Nine Trey,” according to the indictment. Instead, an innocent bystander was shot, authorities said.
