Tekashi 69 Could Face Life Imprisonment After Recent Revelation
Details about troubled rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine’s case have been revealed and the Brooklyn rapper has opened up about his criminal activities. It was originally thought that he plead to eight criminal counts but it’s actually nine.
6ix9ine says that he joined the Nine Trey Bloods in 2017. In court, he also says a few months later he helped members of the gang attempt to kill a rival to “increase my own standing in Nine Trey” and robbed another rival at gunpoint.
He equally spoke about the Chief Keef shooting and gave up the trigger man while explaining what happened. “I paid a person to shoot at a rival member of Nine Trey to scare him,” he says in court. “The shooting took place in Manhattan. I did this to maintain or increase my own standing in Nine Trey.”
For his drug trafficking charge, Tekashi admitted to selling a kilo of heroin in 2017. He struck a plea deal and is cooperating with federal officers, which should reduce his sentencing significantly. As of right now, the minimum sentence is 47 years and the maximum is life imprisonment.
