Tekashi 6ix9ine could spend life in prison due to criminal charges that were filed against him in federal court on Monday, TMZ has learned. According to an eyewitness, the rapper appeared in court with his hands and feet shackled.
6ix9ine’s ex-manager Shottie, real name Kifano Jordan, and their associates Faheem Walter (aka Crippy), Jensel Butler (aka Ish), Jamel Jones (aka Mel Murda), and Fuguan Lovick (aka Fu Banga) were also arrested. They all face racketeering and firearms charges. Hernandez is currently in federal custody. 6ix9ine said last week that he had fired Shottie and the rest of his management team.
According to the eight-count indictment, viewed by Pitchfork, Hernandez and the other defendants “participated in the operation and management of” the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods. The indictment accuses gang members of murder, robbery, assault, the sale of drugs, and more. Two of the charges Hernandez faces have a maximum penalty of life in prison. Pitchfork has emailed a representative for 6ix9ine for comment.
Hernandez, Jordan, and two other associates are accused of robbing unknown rivals of the gang at gunpoint on April 3. The indictment also references a July 16 shooting incident in Brooklyn. Hernandez and others are accused of agreeing “to shoot an individual who had shown disrespect to members of Nine Trey, and as a result of this agreement an innocent bystander was shot.”
The investigation that led to 6ix9ine’s arrest was conducted by the U.S. Attorney’s office with the NYPD, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and Homeland Security Investigations.
