Tekashi 6ix9ine Reportedly Cooperating With Feds But Still Faces At Least 47 Years In Prison
NEW YORK, NY – Tekashi 6ix9ine was reportedly doing a whole lot of talking following his arrest last November. TMZ reports the polarizing rapper is cooperating with the feds in hopes of receiving a lighter sentence.
In a transcript from 6ix9ine’s hearing last week, he admits he joined the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods in 2017. He also confesses he helped members of the gang attempt to kill a rival to “increase my own standing in Nine Trey” last March. A month later, he says he and other members of the gang robbed a rival at gunpoint.
6ix9ine was also open about the Chief Keef shootingand cops to paying someone.
“I paid a person to shoot at a rival member of Nine Trey to scare him,” he says in the transcript. “The shooting took place in Manhattan. I did this to maintain or increase my own standing in Nine Trey.” He also says he knew a fellow gang member was the triggerman.
But that’s not all. 6ix9ine also confirmed he sold a kilo of heroin in 2017 while offering an apology for all his crimes.
“I apologize to the Court, to anyone who was hurt, to my family, friends and fans for what I have done and who I have let down,” he says.
Despite his cooperation, 6ix9ine could still be facing a minimum of 47 years and at least a $10 million fine unless the feds press for leniency.
On Friday (February 1), it was reported 6ix9ine pleaded guilty to nine counts, including racketeering, conspiracy, firearms offenses and narcotics trafficking.
