Brooklyn rapper 6ix9ine indicted on racketeering charges

TMZ reports that the rapper, his former manager Kifano "Shottie" Jordan - who he'd recently fired - and two other people with whom he's associated were arrested on racketeering and firearms charges.

Rapper Tekashi69, real name Daniel Hernandez and also known as 6ix9ine, Tekashi 6ix9ine, Tekashi 69, arrives for his arraignment on assault charges in County Criminal Court #1 at the Harris County Courthouse on August 22, 2018, in Houston, Texas. The investigation was a joint effort by the bureau, NYPD, and Homeland Security.

All in all, 6ix9ine and his associates face 17 federal charges.

A law enforcement source tells E! He faces a minimum of 32 years in prison.

Last week, Hernandez announced the cancellation of all his upcoming USA tour dates, and also revealed that he fired "everybody" that handles his management, including Jordan, according to a clip he uploaded to Instagram last week.

6ix9ine has seen a huge rise to fame and has become one of the most controversial names in hip-hop. The prosecution also says that Nine Trey carried out violent attacks on members of rival gangs - which sometimes led to innocent bystanders being shot or killed. Those acts could include murder, robbery, extortion and drug distribution, the court papers said.

'Members and associates of Nine Trey committed, conspired, attempted, and threatened to commit acts of violence, including acts involving murder, robbery, and extortion against rival gang members and other individuals adverse to the Enterprise'. The "FEFE" rapper was already on thin ice after a judge in NY sentenced him to probation for his ongoing child sexual assault case.

At the time, many of us speculated that the arrest would probably lead to prison time for 6ix9ine, since he was already on probation after pleading guilty to using a minor in a sexual performance.

After that, prosecutors pushed on October 27 to have Hernandez register as a sex offender and serve a one-to-three-year prison sentence, but his lawyers argued it down to four years of probation and 1,000 hours of community service.
