Tekashi 6ix9ine Pleads Guilty in Court

It looks like we won’t be seeing much of 6ix9ine anymore after the rapper plead guilty to charges.

The hip hop world has been following the legal drama of rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine for over a year. People thought his sexual misconduct involving an underage girl case would spell the end of him, but he managed to beat the case with merely a slap on the wrist.

However, his celebration of freedom was cut short when he was arrested on federal racketeering charges. He was also charged related to the attempted shooting of fellow rapper Chief Keef.

He had been unable to get bail and has remained in federal custody since late last year. He was arrested just before his album, DUMMY BOY, was set to be released.

He has since begun cooperating with investigators on the case, implicating his co-defendants and the shooter.

Shockingly, he has plead guilty to the crimes. Court documents no longer show his name as a defendant on the case, signaling a deal had been reached and he wouldn’t be going to trial. He plead guilty to nine charges and faces a minimum of 47 years in prison. He will be in prison until his sentencing, which isn’t schedule until 2020. However, if he continues cooperating, he will likely receive a deal that reduces his sentence. However, it’s pretty clear he won’t be coming home any time soon.

Court transcripts show him explaining exactly what went down with the Chief Keef shooting: “I paid a person to shoot at a rival member of Nine Trey to scare him,” he said in court. “The shooting took place in Manhattan. I did this to maintain or increase my own standing in Nine Trey.”

He also confirmed he had sold a kilo of heroin in 2017. He confirmed other crimes in relation to his involvement with the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang.

He is also paying for private security for his family following news of his deal, as he is – for good reason – concerned of the backlash it may cause.

Naturally, people had a lot to say about it, with some offering their prayers and others, well…they weren’t as kind.
