The rapper is currently under probation for crimes in 2015 and these new charges could certainly see him spending time in prison, possibly life.
The colorful rapper, who has millions of downloads on Spotify, was arrested Sunday night with his former manager on racketeering and firearms charges, according to TMZ.
This is hardly the first time Tekashi6ix9ine, real name Daniel Hernandez, has been arrested. He’s been charged for a litany of other alleged crimes, including use of a child in a sexual performance, assault, and sale of heroin.
TMZ is reporting that Tekashi, his former manager who goes by the name “Shottie,” and a man named Faheem Walter, who goes by “Crippy” for short, were arrested by ATF agents in New York City Sunday night. The sting was no small effort; the ATF, NYPD and Homeland Security all apparently collaborated to nail the group.
Four men in total were booked on racketeering and firearms charges.
