Tekashi 69 – Court Docs Claim He Was Part Of Group Involved In Heroin Sales & Murder, Could Face Life In Prison
On Monday, Tekashi 6ix9ine, real name Daniel Hernandez, went to court after being arrested on federal racketeering and weapons charges. Now, more details have been made available.
According to documents from the United States District Court in New York’s southern district, 6ix9ine, Jamel “Mel Murda” Jones, Kifano “Shottie” Jordan, Jensel “Ish” Butler, Fuguan “Fu Banga” Luvick, and Faheem “Crippy” Walter were all arrested on federal charges involving racketeering, firearms, and violent crime in aid of racketeering. Four of his six charges could land Tekashi behind bars for 20 years to life. One of the counts comes with a mandatory 25 years.
The documents state that 6ix9ine and his crew are members and associates of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods who operated in and around Manhattan, the Bronx, and Brooklyn, New York. The indictment claims that members and associates of Nine Trey sold heroin, fentanyl, furanyl fentanyl, MDMA, dibutylone, and marijuana. They also committed multiple shootings, murders, extortions, robberies, and assaults against their rivals and against fellow Nine Trey members. The docs even name Tekashi and his crew and says they conspired to murder someone on or around July 16, 2018. However, as a result, an innocent bystander was shot.
Back in April, Tekashi reportedly sat in a car while his manager and associates allegedly robbed his rivals. An AR-15 style rifle was also recovered from Tekashi’s home back in September.
Last week, Tekashi fired his team, including management. He broke the news on social media, as well as an interview with The Breakfast Club. On Saturday, the FBI informed Tekashi that two of the men the rapper had fired, his co-defendants, planned to kill him.
Reportedly, Tekashi was offered protection by the FEDS but declined their help. When they learned that the rapper planned to travel to Foxwoods Casino, they picked him up. Tekashi was arrested on Sunday night and was denied bail due to failure to prove he was not a danger to the community. He will remain in custody pending trial.
Tekashi’s celebrity status has not earned him any special privileges, either. The rapper has been placed in gen pop at Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center, which is known to be
“extremely dangerous, violent, or escape-prone.”
