The Daily Beast reports that the Brooklyn rapper pled guilty last Saturday however, the records were only made public until this morning. This comes two months after he was arrested by federal agents and hit with several federal racketeering and firearms charges. He was also accused of being a part of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, a gang that was accused of selling narcotics and engaging in “brazen acts of violence,” according to a statement from Manhattan U.S.
Last night, Page Six reported that Tekashi may have cut a deal with the Feds when yesterday it was discovered that the 22-year-old hip-hop artist’s name was not named as a defendant in the updated indictment in connection with the attempted murder of rival rapper Chief Keef.
Neither the US attorney’s office nor 6ix9ine’s new lawyer, Dawn Florio, would give a statement if Hernandez had flipped on his previous co-defendants. 6ix9ine fired his previous lawyer, Lance Lazzaro, because the attorney withheld information that he previously represented two of Tekashi’s fellow Nine Trey Gangsta Blood co-defendants.
McKenzie, aka “Kooda B,” and Tekashi’s former manager Kifano Jordan, aka “Shottie,” were charged for allegedly shooting at Chief Keef, in Midtown in June.
