Tekashi

Rapper Tekashi69 caught a break during his sentencing hearing in a Manhattan court on Friday. The 22-year-old rapper faced 3 years in prison for violating the terms of a plea agreement.

Tekashi was sentenced to 4 years probation for violating the terms of his plea agreement stemming from a 2015 arrest for using a child for indecent purposes. He must perform 1,000 hours of community service and he can not affiliate with any street gangs. Tekashi was not ordered to register as a sex offender, according to The Blast.

Tekashi, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, was surrounded by bodyguards as he arrived to the New York Supreme Courthouse in Manhattan on Friday.

The rainbow haired rapper was arrested in 2015 and charged with the use of a minor child in a sex film performance. He was also arrested in May 2018 for choking out a teenage fan in Houston, Texas.

Tekashi spoke softly and begged the judge not to throw him in prison. He said his goal was to be the “biggest superstar” he can be and he wants to use his power to help kids like him.

The “Gummo” rapper, who also goes by 6ix9ine, concluded by saying, “There are people who deserve to be in jail but Daniel Hernandez is not one of them.”

Tekashi’S entourage was reportedly prepared to say their goodbyes to him in court today.

  • Shamwow

    Being non black in America.

  • We Can Do This

    If he’s helping kids by spreading ignorance gang violence drug use and drug dealing, these kids don’t need his help doing that.

    I bet he paid a kings ransom for his freedom. He’ll be on tour trying to recoup that money.

  • RealATLPeach36

    He sound to me like he did graduate for elementary. I e heard him speak well I wouldn’t call it speaking but …I’m unsure and it seems as if he only made it to 3rd grade. In court he sat up look directly in the judge eyes and spoke..

  • trisha hunter

    #NoWorries…he will do it again. He hasn’t learned a thing! But if you count getting away with child molestation, well then he’s learned to get away with being a tattooed, rainbow colored, fruit looped pedophile! Fact!

    He should go to.prison, for looking like the grim keeper. LOL!

  • pure_rachet

    he’s Mexican and Puerto Rican.

  • Jamal Warner

    You do know that those are only nationalities. There are white mexicans as well as melaninated ones also. As there are white puerto ricans as there is melaninated ones.

    Between that hair, his fat tats and those skittle colored horse teeth. Not even his white skin can save em…

  • the guest

    I hope he sincerely appreciates his freedom and realizes that four years probation and 1,000 hours community service is actually still “prison” and a set up for him to go to prison.

  • the guest

    He’s half Mexican half Puerto Rican from Brownsville Brooklyn.

  • the guest

    I’m certain the judge is mortgage and debt free overnight.

  • Jamal Warner

    It did in this case. He is not in jail.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Chiiile he’s an adult,ain much they can do

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Sounds like the judge got his check in time. How do you stay out of prison when you are guilty of having a minor child in a sex film performance?!!! People really don’t care about right or wrong, they care about getting the bag. Doesn’t matter who gets hurt, stepped on, crushed, used, as long as they secure the bag. His day is coming. He looks like someone we will say got arrested and was deserving of it. Unfortunately a child will have to pay the price with her innocence.

  • dru and neil

    But it was nothing but black men gathered around him at the courthouse in his entourage. Black people need to stop putting just anybody on.

  • Allihave2say

    My question is why did the parents allow her to be in the film or whatever? I ask the same question about Aaliyah being with R. Kelly and getting married. After death her parents are so over protective of her memory. Before death she was able to run off with R. Kelly and the parents asked no questioned until the media came out with the marriage story.

  • MsPam

    His bodyguard got shot after he left the court house. Karma will get Tekashi69 sooner or later.

  • T Willis

    With a few drops of black blood… ?

  • T Willis

    Mexicans and Puerto Rican’s are mixed ethnicities. Mostly involving native Americans, yts, and negro blood. But yes, they are at the lighter end of the spectrum.

  • Coy little wink

    Who said the parents allowed it? Sex with a minor is illegal parents cannot consent neither can the minor.

    Marriage is different…parents can consent to make it legal but Aaliyah eloped with r Kelly that’s illegal and why the marriage was annulled her parents did not consent it was fraudulent

  • Li-Wright

    @the guest — you really believe if he broke probation he would go to PRISON!!!???? No way….he or his lawyer will find a judge they can pay off.

  • Li-Wright

    I say the same about Chief Keef — whose music I have never heard, but just looking at him is a turnoff.

  • the guest

    It’s not so much karma as it is lifestyle. Tekashi69 is a lifelong affiliated gang member.

    He really had the best lawyers money could buy because they were able to hide the fact that the sexual assault on that young girl was a gang initiation.

    Any association of the assault with gang initiation would have absolutely landed him in jail.

    Interesting that the judge specifically ordered him not to associate with gangs, however, his charges are not on record as gang related. He got a non gang related sentence for a gang related crime because money buys justice.

    Be overprotective parents because even kids from good homes are being lured into gang initiations and sexual assault of the girls is common.

  • the guest

    Eventually he will if he violates probation. Pay offs don’t go on forever. Probation and community service are systemic set ups for recidivism so he needs to wisen up and realize he is not “free” and also that he is NOT white.

  • TheyDontHearMeTho

    I mean..R Kelly is still out here pied pipin the youngins…yal surprised??

  • Queen B

    Im not trying to defend him but the girl lied about her age, she admitted and there was no sex involved….he only picked her up on his shoulder when they were filming a video. Unfortunately, the charges sound a lot worse than the incident bc there’s no way to add modifiers behind the charge.

  • Queen B

    It wasn’t a sex film lol he was shooting a video and she was in it

  • the guest

    Sloane should have a modeling contract.

  • Faithz

    Sound good to me, and she sure can speak
    really good to me. I Love Her and Osaka.

  • Allihave2say

    I didn’t fully actualize my question and point. Sorry, I was posting hastily. Ok. Aaliyah left town with R. Kelly and eloped at 15 yrs of age. How did this happen? Why weren’t her parents keeping tabs on their 15 yr old daughter? Every time there 15 yr old daughter was in the studio, in concert, on tour or where ever, responsible parents should have been there protecting and guiding her to safety. Had they been present and monitoring Aaliyah there would have been no chance to elope and no marriage to annul. that’s how I see it.

  • TruthshallsetUFree!!!!

    He would definitely become someone’s bytch in prison

  • TruthshallsetUFree!!!!

    It’s probably best for her

  • Goodii2Shoes

    was watching the hiphop baphomet contract on youtube and they say these full body tats are evidence of the sexual assaults these males survive in exchange for toys and media presence… Daniel looks like a gay adult film star using colorful hair and tats to try to hide now that he has this new rapper image (never heard his music so idk if he is acting thugged out or just weirdo pedo rapper type )lol yes, gay porn will show you some nigs doing some sh** you may or may not have known dl nigs be up to lol *shrugs*

    That whole Aaliyah thing was just tragic.

  • the guest

    The sexual abuse of black and latino boys and men is rampant in hip hop culture and industry whether they have no tattoos, one tattoo, or a thousand tattoos.

    Tekaski is an affiliated gang member from impoverished section of black and latino Brooklyn. The larger issue how the hip hop industry takes advantage of the poor and low income black and latino male youth desperate for a way out of the ghetto through hip hop.

    Hip Hip shouldn’t take advantage of young men in exchange for opportunities. Abuse begets abuse because then the abused boys/men then abuse girls/women.

    Read about Afrika Bambatta. He founded hip hop, founded the zulu nation, gave countless opportunities to young black and latino boys in the hood, and decades later he was exposed for molesting and raping boys he was mentoring in hip hop.

  • Diva_woman

    It was music video with multiple teens in it. He was 17 or 18 the girl was 13 or 14 but lied about her age. She was twerking, someone touched her butt. The video was posted and they caught all the boys in it all of them were charged and took plea deals. He wasn’t the one who touched her that’s why his charge was for having a minor in a video.

  • Diva_woman

    It was a music video with multiple teens, he was 17 she was 13. He didn’t touch the girl in any inappropriate spot just that’s why his charge was just for having her in the video. He got that plea deal as a poor Mexican and if he never got famous probably wouldn’t even be on parole right now.

  • Diva_woman

    He didn’t touch the girl though and he was 17. It was a music video with multiple kids in it.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    You don’t have to tell me. But I’m glad you did. Working as a talent manager ( very young) I refused clients who were susceptible to abuse or perpetuating crimes against others in exchange for hiphop gigs.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Yop…it’s some deep psychological issues goingz on

  • the guest

    God and everything good in the universe bless you for your insight, clarity, initiative, courage, compassion and strength in advocacy for the young victims of sexual and economic abuse in the hip hop industry.

    Notice how Tekashi was recently kidnapped, robbed, and beaten in retaliation to his (gang initiation) assault on the young girl. Notice Tekashi refused to press charges.

    Because he’s a successful hip hop artist (he paid the price) abd gang member and victimized boys/men don’t tell. We will never know the extent of his kidnapping and assault or who his victim in his sexual assualt case is being victimized by (affiliated with) now. The cycle continues. People need to look at the bigger picture.

  • the guest

    Amen!

  • the guest

    Amen.

  • the guest

    If R. Kelly was targeting white girls/women for his personal sexual abuse and sex trafficking, he would be in jail. The larger issue is that this country and law enforcement do not value the black girls/women R. Kelly abuses.

  • the guest

    He used to wear his gang colors along with his rainbow style. But he doesn’t wear red bananas anymore. Like Cardi is not wearing her colors anymore. They’re still affiliated but they hide it now.

    It was said that while incarcerated he was diagnosed with. serious STD and they let him out to prevent the spread. The rumor is he’s HIV+ and they don’t want him in population as he’ll be a regular target.

    I just don’t like her.

  • the guest

    He didn’t have sex with the girl but he did touch her. He fondled her and simulated having sex with her while she performed oral sex on his fellow gang member. They videotaped the girl. They knowingly exploited the girl. Tekashi did not rape the girl but he molested and exploited her.

  • the guest

    An average not famous gang member would have gotten 20 years. Fame and money got Tekashi off without time inside prison.

  • the guest

    Mexicans and Puerto Ricans are NOT biracial or multiracial. They are Latinos no matter what their skin color. They do not have white parentage. They are not even European Spaniards.

  • Jamal Warner

    All people are of mix race. This guy clearly is white as you can see in his earlier photos. One of the benefits of being a white person is the ability to temporarily to deny your race.

    This is one Caucasian who tries way too hard to be a rapper. All of those colliding colors and colorful hair, he looks like a walking color wheel.

  • MythCalledLove

    Boycott anything he does from this point on.We hv folks doing 25 years for stealing loaf of bread & accidentally knocking down the Wal-Mart greeter. This is quid pro quo. Something is not right here. Any company/person that deals with him should be blacklisted.

    No he didn’t. His charges would’ve reflected that.

  • the guest

    He’s an affiliated gang member who molested and simulated sex with an underage girl, exploited her with video and the internet, and his fame and money bought lawyers and freedom.

    There are specific task forces and harsher sentences for gang members that somehow alluded gang member Tekashi. No one will boycott 50 for disowning his eldest son and disrespecting his son’s mother, so they’re not boycotting 50 for claiming Tekashi as kin.

    C.R.E.A.M. is still the ruling mentality.

    That’s the thing. He is not Caucasian.

    Machine Gun Kelly is Caucasian.

    Tekashi is Mexican and Puerto Rican. He not even half white biracial. He does not have white parentage. He’s not even European Spanish. He’s 100% Latino from Latino and Black Brownsville Brooklyn. He was not getting white treatment until he got more famous and wealthy and then fame and money bought his avoidance of prison. Let him go broke, guess where Mexican Puerto Rican Brooklyn affiliated gang member Tekashi will be.

Y’all really need to stop picking and choosing was to be disgusted because of Race …if he was black y’all would be bashing the girl and her mother instead..SMH us folks stay talking about the racism against us yet we be the most racist group against everyone including our own…???

    Says the person who doesn’t know the different between nationality and race. The guy is in fact white.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    ?you have jokes!!!
    It looked like his mother been stopped loving him& that face.
    Like she caught him sexually abusing a close relative & hid it out of shame for her womb so he did this to the face even his mother couldn’t love & his father sitting somewhere like “I told her don’t have the kid, I don’t want nuthns to do w/him” *in a heavy Mexican accent *

  • Goodii2Shoes

    I respect true gang culture. (Community protect & improvement, economic power) So him being beat up etc doesn’t move me& he better reguse to press charges ? . However, he represents the areas of the music business I have to deal with. &the United States failed thinking that locking up OGs or top guys would solve what they considered a “problem”. We see just how that worked out.
    Little girls being sexually assaulted or consenting to be used as sex objects to enter a gang is the result of the United States intervening

  • Goodii2Shoes

    God and everything good in the universe bless you for your insight, clarity, initiative, courage, compassion and strength in advocacy for the young victims of sexual and economic abuse in the hip hop industry.
