Tekashi 6ix9ine

It looks like the end of the road for rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine. The 22-year-old Brooklyn native was arrested Sunday on federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) charges, according to online reports.

Tekashi, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, was taken into federal custody along with his recently fired manager and two others, according to TMZ. The full complaint against the troubled rapper has not been disclosed by the feds.

According to hip-hop personality DJ Akademiks, the rapper and two affiliates were taken into custody on RICO charges on Sunday night.

"I’m hearing RICO and Racketeering charged [sic] … don’t quote me on that. Won't be able to tell exactly what he is being charged for until indictments are unsealed or until feds start confirming what’s up. More info to come the morning."

RICO charges usually entails organized crime (gang) activity, and conviction carries stiff prison sentences and penalties.

Last week, Tekashi recorded a video announcing he'd fired his entire management team and booking agency for stealing $3.6 in a deal.

But the booking agency denied his allegations, saying Tekashi never received a $3 million deal.

The agency, MTA Booking, also accused Tekashi of faking his kidnapping and assault, and they claimed he was never robbed of a million dollars worth of jewelry.

MTA Booking told TMZ Tekashi was sent $700,000 in advance for nine upcoming concerts in the U.S. and two in Mexico.

There were also two shows booked in Germany for which he was paid $160,000, according to MTA Booking.

Tekashi's lawyer fired back in a statement to TMZ, saying MTA booking should show contracts with the rapper's signature proving they were acting as his booking agent to book performances on his behalf.

Los Angeles Police are also looking into reports that Tekashi used "fake police" as bodyguards carrying fake police badges while out in Los Angeles on Nov. 4.

"These fake cops wearing these fake vests with fake badges," a police official told the Daily Beast. "What self-respecting gang member would be surrounded by somebody who looks like the police?"

The rapper was sentenced to four years probation last month after he pled guilty to three felony counts of Use of a Child in a Sexual Performance.

He was also arrested in July on an outstanding warrant for choking a 16-year-old boy who video recorded him and his entourage at a shopping mall in New York in January.

Tekashi is being held without bail. On Sunday, Tekashi revealed the tracklist to his new album to be released on Friday, Nov. 23.

  • Rayne

    Good. This is the attention he wanted. I hope they give him life.

  • We Can Do This

    Snitching is the endgame for most of these halfway thugs!

    He's too little to be locked up. He's going to get passed around on date nights.

  • IAINTMADATCHA

    RICO charges are helluva promotion.

  • WhoKnew

    Good riddance punk ass midget. RICO (A.K.A. federal racketeering) charges ain't no joke. Federal time for a long time. When will people learn that your freedom is more important than committing a crime or crimes? I talk a lot of smack on this site (for entertainment purposes only). Therefore, you will never see or hear about me committing a crime. I am not about that jail or penitentiary life.

  • bran

    Hey auntie! Can we get a post on Kandi calling herself "clapping back" to that fake Porsha page? LMAOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • FukkFolks2018

    Well. Good day to you. You were silly from the jump. J Cole even told you to have a seat in a recorded advice type situation. Like...I can't with some of these kids. He is 22. His parents are my peers. And I had no idea some of my peers were smoking crack in 1996-97. Bc whole lot of crack baby behavior is rampant in this age group.

  • Marlika

    I’m sick this ignorant mofo. RICO charges are hard to beat. Oh well sucks to be him.?????

  • ohdearme

    Meh as much as this A-hole has been in the news lately these charges probably saved his life! Stay behind bars and perhaps when you get out you'll be mature enough to realize that ink on your face needs to be REMOVED!

  • TMW

    They love all those SoundCloud rappers. I call them the “lil’s” because a lot of them have “Lil” in their names.

    offtopic: i finally got around to my first two RHOA episodes. this pregnant-belly-milkdud-built-wanna-be-rozay porsha done got knocked up by is like the worst! he don't even want to kiss her and she is acting as STUPID and GOOFY as ever. and all eva got going for her is trying to convince us all she's a model. eva you ain't SH!T! don't EVER try to compare yourself to cynthia and stop trying to force your child on that man's lap. kevin mccall prolly don't watch this show. riley is still shading the fugg out of her mama lol...and speaking truth. i'mma leave nene's wig and face alone because of greg. i'm missing somebody. marlo is the only one i really care to watch. and the new chick. i don't know her and don't wanna know her.

  • FukkFolks2018

    And a whole lot of letters. Like XXX. I ignored them ALL til our 12 and 14 yo started listening to this crap. We don't censor music, but this mess... bf don't even allow them to connect this trash to his Bluetooth anymore. Put your ear buds in you wanna listen to this lol.

  • the guest

    Didn’t I say on this blog that Tekasi 69 and his cohort’s sexual assault against the underage girl was a gang initiation.

    He’s a full fledged lifelong born into the gang affiliated gang member. He had fantastic lawyers who were able to keep gang affiliation out of that sexual assault charge in order to get him off with probation.

    But now his gang affiliation has caught up with him. He tried to clean up by getting rid of all his affiliations but it was too late. Tekashi firing them only made them into angry vindictive snitches. He should’ve fired them and kept them on the payroll. Gangs are slavery, evil, and never the way to go.

    These rappers and stars don’t get released from the gang because they get famous and wealthy. Their kick back rate goes up UNLESS they buy themselves out of the gang like Cardi B. And like that gang banger felon bae model Jeremy Meeks whose heiress sidechick girlfriend definitely bought his freedom from the gang.

  • the chosen one

    Trying hard to attain his street credit.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Right, no bodyguards to protect him anymore. He'll be on his own and he ain't bout s**t so yeah, they gonna F him up.

  • what?why

    He thought he would outdo the Feds, they got him in the end! Thank God

  • TMW

    I don’t have teenagers or any children in my house. But I asked my 20 year old where they came from and why they all have Lil in their names. I have never listened to one song by any of them.

    I think the teens only reason we have. And 2 teen girls. One is going through a Hispanic music phase right now. We get subjected to everything. Sadly lol?

  • Well$$Well$$?

    Bravo was soooo shady playing the clip of Porsha swooning over Dennis then playing a clip of Kandi and them saying he basically does the same thing with every lady he dates. ?? Porsha looked preggers when she was working out with Eva imo...

  • TMW

    My daughter has introduced me to a lot of different music. When I’m in her car, I have no choice. But she’s knows I will not listen to the lil’s. Doesn’t sit right in my spirit.

  • Trace da Ace

    well, well, well......since little Daniel wants to be a big time gang banger....welcome to that life....where your only 2 options are jail and death....lucky for you...you got the first choice....but it will only be a matter of time before the second option creeps up on you. You had a golden ticket to do something better with you life....even though your music consists of mindless babbling over sub par beats.....you were able to get rich and what do you do??? you troll endlessly on the internet, making yourself and the people around you, targets. And now...they have hit you with the RICO.....ain't no way out of that little boy.....now you will have to "man up" and do the time....all while ducking and dodging Bubba Bust Azz......now you will be somebody's bytch.....now you will see what "thug life" is all about. And there is nobody to blame but yourself. So take this time in the pokey to reflect on the life choices that you have made...and where it has landed you....from being a millionaire to inmate # xyz1234567. I hope that all of the little twinks that follow you..learn a lesson. Probably not...but God willing...NOBODY will follow in the footsteps you have chosen. In closing, one last question.....WAS IT WORTH IT?

  • Prince Zuko

    I think it's funny that he dropping a album real soon and this right here will give him the Fame he wanted all along I bet he sells mad records cuz he's behind bars. At the end of the day why even give him probation if 5 minutes later they knew they was coming for him ? He got played so bad now he's gonna be the next Bobby smurda making mad bread for the lable while 69 rots in jail. And on another note he kinda denounce his gang that's not gonna play well in jail....

  • Well$$Well$$?

    Teriyaki 69 is really fukking up. That lifestyle he's trying to live seems cool. Until you're facing real prison time or you get seriously hurt.

  • lovelygamour

    i'm just surprised he is a playboy. he ain't cute, he ain't fine, and he ain't literate. i need to see what type of chicks he was pulling. i think this is an arrangement worked out for him to promote whatever brand he has and for her to keep her peach. he didn't pretend to want to fugg her and there is no chemistry whatsoever between them. and yes, i noticed she definitely was pregnant when that was filmed.

    Whoever was trying to kill him on the streets would have eventually succeeded so if he can get a bish bodyguard from the yard inside the PEN to keep him from being passed around like a joint from one nucca to the next, than the PEN most likely will save his life. All he got to do is go to the yard and drop it like it's sizzling hot. And while you're tere, wash yo damned face Teriyaki. Those Egyptian hieroglyphics on your face don't make you look hard or gangsta fool. Just makes you look like a clown ass midget. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/810c230bf60cf15a565ceb1b260b4ae6f8e6bd68d1b5cc2577683dd5f8a47984.gif

    So we know the federal conviction rate and why most cases never make it to trial. Unlike the state, when the federal prosecutors come for you it is a done deal. If you are lucky maybe a plea deal will be offered. They will take months and in many cases years to build their case which is most always a solid one. Not looking good for him....

    Thank you because looking like rainbow bright won't help him in prison.

  • Jackie Byrd

    I totally agree. I think he made a deal with some secret group that had an agenda and he didn't fulfill his role and they dropped they protection. Just the fact that he had big stars like Kanye, Nikki, and No cents working with him let's me know he had a big backer. But now he not worth the trouble.

  • Micheal Daston

    There not going win that case, they just want to break up his crew. That's why the judge denied him bail, so he can't go on tour and make more $$$ to fight them with

  • Micheal Daston

    They often rack up charges and hope one of them stick. If you were to look at most cases the ones they win are either broke people or obvious

  • seekuwe

    I think if were a troll he wouldn't be under Federal Indictment

  • sunni_daze

    Google federal conviction rate 2017.....93% the pedo gangbanger is going to be someone's lady love in the clink.

  • Micheal Daston

    that's because Federal magistrates and judges will appoint a government defense lawyer even when the defendant can afford to hire a lawyer. You may ask why this is the case. I’ll leave that up to someone else to discuss, but when you find out that ONLY folks that are arrested and charged with a federal offense are entitled to a government appointed attorney, you get the picture. You really think the governments care if you have a lawyer willing to fight and work hard for you. That’s not their job. Those that CAN hire a lawyer early can usually get to communicate with the investigators like the FBI, DEA, and IRS before the case gets filed.

    This is a big advantage in some cases. It is not a secret that over 95% of all federal criminal cases end in a plea of guilty and subsequent sentencing. If it looks like the feds got you, you need to get to the courthouse before your former buddies get there first.
