Tekashi 6ix9ine

Tekashi 6ix9ine will cool his heels in jail following his arrest on federal RICO and firearm charges. A judge on Monday denied his offer of $1.1 million -- his entire bank balance as collateral for bail.

Tekashi, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, was taken into custody along with his ex-manager, Kifano "Shottie" Jordan, and two other men late Sunday night.

The arrests came after the rapper fired his entire management team and booking agency for reportedly stealing over $3 million from him.

Federal agents heard his ex manager and others threatening his life on phone taps. Te phone taps picked up the manager saying he wanted to "super violate" Tekashi.

The feds picked up Tekashi last week, took him to Homeland Security's New York City headquarters and offered him protection, according to the Dailybeast.com. But the 22-year-old rapper refused.

He was driven home and kept under 24-hour surveillance until his arrest on Sunday.

The 17-count indictment, which was unsealed late Monday, charged Tekashi, Jordan, Raheem "Crippy" Walter, and Fuguan "Fu Banga" Lovick with being members of a violent street gang, Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.

The indictment charged Tekashi and the three men with firing shots at a rival gang member who disrespected the Trey Nine gang. The shooters missed their intended target and hit an innocent bystander in Brooklyn.

The indictment also accused the men of "brazen acts of violence" and peddling fentanyl and other narcotics on the streets for financial profit.

The troubled rapper appeared visibly shaken when he was escorted into the courtroom in chains on Monday afternoon.

With his rainbow hair pulled away from his face, Tekashi sat with his eyes closed as he listened to the charges against him.

He answered the judge's questions in a soft, polite voice, according to the Dailybeast.com.

His mother, who pleaded for his freedom in an earlier criminal case months ago, fought back tears as she sat between federal agents who closely guarded her in court.

Tekashi's attorney offered all the cash in the rapper's bank accounts -- $1.1 million -- as collateral if the judge granted bail. But the judge ordered him held until his next court date.

TMZ has learned the rainbow-haired rapper is not receiving special treatment while in jail. He was placed in general population with the other gang bangers.

Tekashi was already on probation for using a 13-year-old minor in a sexual performance and for assaulting a police officer.

Tekashi plead guilty in both cases and received probation of up to 5 years. The judge in the case involving the minor child warned the rapper to stay out of trouble or his probation would be revoked.

He faces a minimum of 32 years in prison if convicted on the federal charges.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    This is exactly what needs to happen to Cardi B.

    Her and her gang member friends have physically assaulted and harassed several different women. Sorry not sorry, gangs do too much damage in our community for me to ever support someone that promotes that lifestyle.

    He's about to find out shyt ain't sweet. Under all that "troll" behavior is a little non-black boy that is scared shytless. He's about to find out what real gangsters do with people like him in prison.

  • Dee Moe

    She wont post negatively about Trump. She low key loves him.

  • the guest

    Keep kids out of gangs. But Tekashi was born into gang life then gang life was how he supported his mother and younger sibling. This is the tragic circumstance of many urban poor.

    The FBI offered him protection. And he refused because gang code is no snitching and no police protection. They don’t want him, they want to use him to get info and to who they really want.

    They’re not sending Tekashi to prison. They don’t want him. They want the top brass of his gang. They denied him bail and will keep him locked up to pressure him to snitch and accept protection.

    When the gang starts targeting his mother, he’ll take the deal and police protection. The Feds have him in a bind they need to get the big fish on top. He needs to grow up fast, take the police protection, and start his life over.

    He doesn’t have to go to prison.

  • supastar

    I thought that too

  • Bri

    That’s a lot for liquid cash compared to these other “rich” rappers.

  • Renee26

    Only 1.1 mil in the bank Daniel huh? You in gen pop Daniel huh?? ?

  • the guest

    But Cardi bought her way out of gang life. She paid off her gang for her freedom. Notice no more colors, no more gang vocabulary, notice how she’s refined her image from gang repping. She paid her gang to be free to move on to civilian celebrity life.

    Her fighting is all personal hood rat mess now, not gang related. That’s the difference, Tekashi is still affiliated and forced to do gang business.

  • Tlowe89

    I hope he gets convicted. He’s a predator

  • Renee26

    Ok...and he has it allllll over his body

  • the guest

    He’ll get zero time if he accepts the FBI protection.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    All of that running around and he only got ONE million dollars?!!!! Wow. After taxes he ain't even a millionaire any more.

  • TMW

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. They are trying to flip him. And I read somewhere that he had no affiliation with the gang before 2017, so makes me wonder if the muscles in on him as he started becoming (in)famous.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    That’s what I said like dang!! But see that’s what these entertainers do they will present like they got multiple millions and be 1,000 bucks away from being a thousandnaire smh

  • Blaque Mahogany

    But Cardi bought her way out of gang life. She paid off her gang for her freedom. Notice no more colors, no more gang vocabulary, notice how she’s refined her image.
    Since when? She is constantly referencing gang life. In interviews, in music, etc. She is still very much gang affiliated.

  • OvertheMississippi


  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Yep but if he get out they gone know he told. I heard the reason he had so much protection in the street is because his manager or someone in his group was a well known og gang member

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    He was placed in general population with the other gang bangers......… dang this may not end well especially because of all that talking he did behind security ?????

  • Enoughsaid2020

    Karma comes at you fast!

    And whatever he did to that little girl gets done to him daily.

    ??? I read that in Martin voice

  • TMW

    He’s a soundcloud rapper and internet troll who always seems to find himself on the wrong side of the law. He’s currently facing life in prison for federal charges related to his gang activity. He was denied bail and he is general population.

  • pecancandy

    Too Lazy!!

  • pecancandy

    Thank you

  • Vonn

    Yessssss, that's how I meant it! I knew the garden would understand. ??

  • Trace da Ace


  • Trace da Ace

    yeah and wasn't his manager and them threatening his life when he fired all of them last week? That is what the FEDS have on tap.....so he is basically screwed either way...in these streets and in the clank.

  • Trace da Ace

    hunty....FBI...CIA...DEA...ATF....I can go on and on....lol

  • Dowoop

    Or just plain stupidity

  • lil goodie

    God don't like ugly...

  • garrisonville

    jail is the safest place for him right now. at least he'll stay alive in there (hopefully). he was headed in the wrong direction fast

  • Prince Zuko

    I feel bad for him those clowns that was around him should have shcooled him better ..... I think he should get some kinda punishment for his crimes but 32 years ??? That's a bit much he's not that smart to have an criminal organization. Them guys used him and once he realized it it was way too late. He's a dumb kid that's gonna suffer for not fully understanding what he did. It's not right

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Death IS knocking on his forehead!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    How was he born into gang life? He went to private school, no? Wasn't he a crip first? Then he was a blood? I don't think he's a REAL gang member. I think he pays them for association. I feel like Game and some other rappers talked about this (maybe even Tekashi specifically) before.

  • Prince Zuko

    They have like 5 of em so if anyone else snitch before him that deal will be off the table

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Thank you for explaining...people out here thinking Tekashi was Nino Brown when really he was just the face of the organization...I think his momma, bm and daughter should leave the country now because once they get word he "snitching" its all hands on deck...

  • teather

    Hell naw! there's no sympathy for this guy. He broke the law, he's a banger. Nobody forced him to do anything, esp mess up his face like that. He was DYING to go to prison after doing that ridiculous sh*t to his face. He looks like my little Pony and now he's gonna be riddin' like a horse in prison. RICO arrests are firm; he's been indicted, which means the proof is there and the drug and gun ring has been uncovered. Think Mueller, LOL!

  • Primo Levi

    See what that fake tough guy crap get u she gonna have that salad toss every night!

  • Ms. Jackson

    Wheeeew Chile! I would hate to be in his shoes right about nie!

  • trisha hunter

    Ok, so now he looking real stupid! All that flossing on Social Media only to get to this point. This fruity pebbles is looking like he knows what's about to go down behind those bars. Hey #T69, "it's ok to drop the soap, just don't pick it up!" Lol!

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Well since you wanna play black..you get the black bidnez end of the police stick.. prolly won't get harsh time still tho..

  • WutizstillHERE!

    This bytchass about to sing and plead like a parrot that learned keith sweats whole album! Then he will truly see what these streets do..

  • NuBeauty

    Stop portraying you about that life....because that life will get you one way or another. With all that mouth he got....I personally don't feel sorry. Learn how to stfu sometimes kid!

  • pure_rachet

    Except that the former team he fired is in there with him, about to put a hit out.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I wouldn't want to visit troops in a war zone either.

  • Peppermint Patty

    So do you feel bad about the little girl he messed with? He was smart enough to turn his internet presence into 3 million bucks and a record deal.....have to respectfully disagree on this one he played with fire (KNOWINGLY) and got burned

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Yes it was. Thanks. ?

  • dontgetblocked

    There's a limit to snitches get stitches. If I had RICO charges against me, I would have ratted everyone out including my mother. He better start singing to get a better deal. Do about ten years. Cut his hair and go to Mexico and spend the rest of his life in seclusion. I guess he'll have to have all those tats removed from his face.

  • dontgetblocked

    What about the 13 year old he sxxed up?

  • Prince Zuko

    I don't disagree with him being punished for his crimes it's just life without parole seems extreme and from my understanding he didn't actually have sex with the girl he just recorded himself smacking her @$$. Granted he's stupid but dose he deserve to pay for it with his life?

  • MRiGOThim

    Edit your post Auntie...the gang is called Nine Trey Gangstas :P

  • Prince Zuko

    He is guilty in many ways and one of those ways Is him being stupid. He did mess wit an underage chick but she should have been looked after better plus he didn't even smash he just used her to troll the web. I do think that he should receive punishment for his crimes but I don't think a Rico case is it. It's way to much for a dude that hasn't had the chance to live through his second childhood cuz he's still in his first. He Has no idea how effective his methods was to attain Fame.

  • Peppermint Patty

    Stop at your first 3 words..HE IS GUILTY....You speak as if you know him personally and that you know what the outcome will be...other rappers/ppl stare at 20, 30, life behind bars doesn't mean he'll get it....caping for this meglomaniac is the exact reason he's in this position....no excuses...if he was involved in a drive by that killed an innocent...its a risk you take. Anyhow it's all speculation and opinion and again I respectfully disagree

  • Prince Zuko

    I'm not knocking ur feelings in regards to this but it's clear that this boy had no idea what he was getting into. He got gased up and ran wit it no excuses but the fact is that he really didn't know no better

  • Queen B

    This doesn't sound right....one minute the Feds wanna protect him and the next minute they're arresting him ? Sounds like they still protecting him while keeping his gangsta status

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I agree. It sounds like he snitched when they gave him that little ride to the Homeland Security headquarters.

  • Queen B

    I mean he is independent and not even mainstream im surprise he even got that

  • rockstar2142

    He another Bobby schmurda career over just as he blowing up.

  • pure_rachet

    Y'all gonna drag me and I would too. But I'm rooting for his lil rainbow azz. I don't know his music but I know he is always dodging bullets and fuggin up. But i feel like he has finally tried to do better and his past is catching up. I do think he should be in jail maybe 5 years but understandably the roses will drag me for this opinion.

  • the guest

    She more so represents an image of street cred but not her gang anymore, only in word not in life. Anyone can see she has moved past gang life. And it costs money to buy out.

    She is totally boughie-fying her life and will not be raising her daughter street at all. Cardi B is also a keen social climber (Tekashi is not). Her daughter will actually be raised elite and far removed and sheltered from urban life.

    Cardi’s mom will be picking her granddaughter up from an all white elite upper east side NYC private school and bringing her home to the new New York City mansion Cardi bought for her mother. Cardi is a striver and is very clear that the street and stripping were stepping stones.

  • the guest

    The FBI is holding him hostage to get him to snitch. They offered him protection, he refused, so they’re using prison as pressure tactic. He’ll snitch eventually and he won’t do any prison time. He’s low level in his gang, but he’s a celebrity and has more to lose, so the Feds are using him to get what and who they really want.

  • the guest

    That’s what I’m saying. He needs to grow up and realize they will snitch if he doesn’t. He up against the wall. He doesn’t have to go to prison but life as he knew it is over. He has to accept protection and start his life over.

  • the guest

    He’s a gang member. He has protection because gangs are threatened and jealous when one of their own rises and they feel entitled to his come up. He only had 1 million in his bank account because he pays kick backs to his gang. He fired them all but that only made them mad and target him harder. He’s in a bind and snitching is the only way out.

  • the guest

    He’s low level, a pawn, and his gang has been pimping and holding his success hostage.

  • the guest

    His father was a gang member and drug dealer. And he and family lived the hood rich privileged upper class drug dealer lifestyle. He talks about it interviews growing up privileged until his father was killed. When his father was murdered when he was 12, he entered gang life to take care of his family. He grew up in crime, crime is all he knows, crime was his family’s way not to be poor.

  • the guest

    He’s been affiliated but they probably started hardcore claiming and owning him as he became famous. He was just another one of their many members before his fame. They totally seized upon his fame.

  • the guest

    They had no business putting him in general population. The Feds want to make him vulnerable, they want him scared, threatened, hurt but alive because they want him to snitch. He got off on the other case just so they could lock him up and use him for this one. They don’t want his million dollar bail, they don’t even really want to convict him, they want him to snitch.

  • the guest

    Other rappers don’t have to pay kick backs to their gang.

  • Anika Kelly

    ..and he has to cover the fact that he is a CI now by being "arrested". Makes sense.

  • BeUtFullSoul

    I thought that maybe you were making an emphasis on the fact that he is REALLY locked up......
    Have a Happy Thanksgiving !

  • Blaque Mahogany

    So like I said she still promotes gang life. She still associates herself with known gang members. I'm not sure how she isn't living like a street hoodlum when she literally just threw a shoe at someone at a high class fahsion event. She's canceled appearances but somehow has managed to be in strip clubs with her gang member friends throwing bottles and attacking strippers.

    But I'm going to let you and Cardi live.
