Tekashi 6ix9ine

Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine pled guilty to 9 felony counts, including paying $10,000 for someone to shoot at rival rapper Chief Keef "to scare him."

According to TMZ, Tekashi69 accepted a plea deal with the federal government on Jan. 23.

Court records, unsealed on Friday, showed that the 22-year-old rapper, born Daniel Hernandez, pled guilty to federal charges of racketeering, firearms violations, conspiracy to commit murder, and narcotics trafficking, according to TMZ.

Tekashi gave prosecutors the name of the gang member he hired to shoot at rival rapper Chief Keef "to scare him." The shooter is still on the run.

According to a transcript of the hearing in front of a judge on Jan. 23, Tekashi detailed his involvement in the street gang Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods and his role in the shooting of Keef.

Tekashi 6ix9ine

"On or about June 2, 2018, in furtherance of Nine Trey, of the Nine Trey enterprise, I paid a person to shoot at a rival member of Nine Trey to scare him. The shooting took place in Manhattan. I did this to maintain or increase my own standing in Nine Trey."

He continued: "In furtherance of this shooting, I knew that a member of Nine Trey discharged a gun. On or about March 20, 2018, I helped members of Nine Trey attempt to kill a rival gang member."

Tekashi added that he participated in an armed robbery in April and he sold a kilo of heroin in 2017.

The rapper also discussed his alleged dealings in illegal drugs like heroin, fentanyl, ecstasy and marijuana.

His cooperation led to the indictments of three former Trey Way gang members this week.

Tekashi's plea deal with the government includes a prison sentence of 47 years, according to Instagram blogger @Akademiks.

The rapper was facing life in prison but the life sentence is now off the table.

Tekashi's murder trial which was scheduled for September 2019 is now canceled.

He is expected to remain in a secure federal correctional facility in Queens, NY until his sentencing hearing in January 2020.

    Daaaammmnnn Lil Teriyaki 96!!!! See what happens when you try to be hard but you're really not about that life in any capacity?!?! And Sandra that boy did not agree to 47 years in prison. He was looking at a minimum 47 but coppin' da plee (know I spelled that wrong) is going to reduce that significantly.

  • Jay

    Well that's what you get for trying to be a bad boy. Dont drop the soap!!

  • Malai

    OOOOOHHHHH my goodness ????? This lil boy gained and lost everything within a year tryna be about a fake gang life.. ridiculous

  • hi-liter

    Damn....he yelled “Trey Way!!!” for 2 years....now he staring at 47........

  • Victorious82

    He’ll probably get 5 years max...he sung like the choir for a reason. How did these gangstas think a dude with rainbow colored hair was gonna stick to the code? Lol.

  • 11pink123

    Doubt he confessed to all that to still get 47 years....

    Im pretty sure they must have some agreement for 2-10 years.. or else he might as well have kept his mouth shut and did life.

  • pure_rachet

    Free 69!!! Poor kid. But that’s what you get?????

  • dontgetblocked

    I hope young people learn from this. It's just not worth it. Even if he gets 10 years, that's a decade of his adult life gone. Sad!

  • Yvonne

    Wait, so you’re telling me that not only was he in the court room spilling all the tea, but he’s still looking at 47 years? Ummm this plea deal took a left turn somewhere.

  • Coy little wink

    Nah son he got like 2 years tops

  • RaginB

    Click bait...bet he ain’t doing all that.

  • MoniquetheGeek

    damn daniel.

    We got rid of him, can we get rid of Cardi B next?!

  • justlooking

    He be as stupid as he looks.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    He pled guilty to 9 federal felony charges, including attempted murder, conspiracy, racketeering, firearms violations, drug trafficking. Just the attempted murder alone will get him 10 years. He is in federal custody. He will do every bit of those 47 years.

  • Shira Harding-James

    Wow what a waste of potential

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    He was facing life in prison. He pled guilty to take life off the table.

  • Navybeans95

    Hooligan?...as my grama use to say...rest her soul....now he can cool his heels on tax payers money...SMH

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Don't you think 47 years is better than life?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The feds would have let him plead guilty to 1 or 2 charges if they were going to give him 5 years. He pled guilty to 9 charges, including conspiracy to commit murder and selling a kilo of heroin. He's lucky if he gets out before 47 years.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    He was looking at life in prison. There is no way the feds will give him less than 47 years for 9 felonies. How many felonies did Apollo plead guilty to?

  • T Willis

    Yeah but 47 years in the pen as a snitch? He’d been better off taking one for the team and do life... besides he probably won’t live past the age of 50 anyways

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    " when you do clownery and the clown bites back".

  • Solstice

    Then they’ll place him in the witness protection program. They wanted the bigger fish. What a fool!

  • DeeFromLA

    Good Lord, so he just gave it all up. Sounds like he volunteered information they didn't even ask about.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    They will send him to a Club Fed prison with no gang bangers. Just white collar criminals.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Doesn't he have a child?
    So his kid will have to do prison visits for the 30+ years?
    PARENTS, please do better by your children.

    That’s what I said like why even tell that extra shit lol

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • Bonita

    They must've gave his azz a truth serum.

  • Victorious82

    Doubtful. He’s not going to do anything over 5-10 years. I can’t too much see the difference between life and 47 years honestly. His loved ones could get touched as a result of his cooperation, that plea deal had to be attractive.

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    Yeah they told his azz tell the truth or do this life!! all the serum anybody with sense need!

  • Bonita

    Federal time requires that you do at least 80% of your maximum sentence before you're eligible for parole, as long as parole is on the table. Unless they play favoritism, he'll have to do at least 37.5 years before he's eligible to get out on papers.

  • Kimberly King

    Federal time works different. You gotta serve ever bit of it. Yikes. Now another child will grow up without a father. What loser still gangbangs in this day and age?

  • Society Has Changed

    Whoever he is, what a millennial waste....

  • Gloria

    All rats gotta die, even master splinter

  • DeeFromLA

    He'll be lucky if he makes it to next week with the level of snitching he did.

  • Victorious82

    He’s not going to be sentenced to 47 years is my point.

  • Dun Dilly

    Tats on face = Prison and or dead by 24.

  • joel adams

    Lmao. Clown

  • Li-Wright

    WOW! 47 years. Will he live that long? I feel sorry for him. He drank the cool aid of rappers are gangsters and vice versa.

  • The Art

    He's just facing 47 years, he hasn't been sentenced yet. But either way it's still a tragic set of circumstances. Hope these other gangsta youngins are paying attention.

  • Bonita

    I think what you mean is he's not going to do the entire 47 years. Because his actual sentence is 47 years. And I agree with you on that part. But I think he'll be paroled after serving his 37.5 as long as he has good behaviour.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Wow these wanna be gangsters are lives are personifying their art.

  • Victorious82

    TMZ is reporting something very different about his plea deal. They said the details of the deal haven’t been released so no one knows how many years he’s got yet. Knowing how Sandra likes to skew facts, I’m gonna take their word for it.

  • 100milesperhour

    47 years is life, even if you're only 20 when you go in. I guess a set number gives you a glimmer of hope.

  • Victorious82

    “Based on what we know, Tekashi has struck a plea deal which will increase the likelihood of a significantly reduced sentence in return for ongoing cooperation. Although the minimum sentence is 47 years, the way it typically works is the prosecution will ask for significantly less ... which is his incentive to keep singing like a canary.

    The problem Tekashi faces ... by agreeing to cooperate for the next year -- while the prosecution dangles the carrot of a light sentence -- he's increasing the possibility someone will try to silence him.”

  • T865!

    He’s ?

  • T865!

    Wow, I bet you’re a bag of fun?

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    TMZ said the federales as the are called in Mexico will recommend way less time for his singing like a little rainbow brite bird. I added the rainbow brite. Those federal judges don’t care though about recommendations ... no sireee bob , I believe they gave
    I Michael Cohen as much time as they could and he brought his daughter to court . She is disabled , I’m sure he didn’t do it for sympathy ...

  • stav

    Right, facing 47 years, and every other site I saw said facing that time, or a minimum of 47 years, but like always Sandrarose twist the headlines to make her post more captivating.

  • Dahl

    If so, then he’ll be out when he’s 69. Poetic justice...

    47 years!!!! I'm not even 47 years old and I've been living a long time. So basically he's not getting out until he's 70 huh? Well I hope he cuts his hair because I'm sure he's starting to look pretty to a few people in there.

    And just like that his career and life is all over! He will be a distant memory in the next two months.. smh was it worth it

    Fed time is 85% to serve before being eligible.

  • Logan Roberts

    Welp bye my little pony ?

  • Youcan’tbanmesucka

    He will not be doing 47 years which is the minimum. Whatever time they come back with, which I'm guessing 2-10 years, he will only have to do 85%.

  • millz

    He’ll be 69 when released how ironic ?

  • Victorious82

    We will see...I actuallly know someone that was charged with a federal offense and did a plea deal and admitted to the crime and did much less than the minimum sentence due to the plea agreement. Sooooo I think you are incorrect that the minimum sentence means one MUST get the minimum if there is a plea agreement. But we will see...I know you have a flare for the dramatics.

  • We Can Do This

    47 years is equal to no release date. Going to prison with the title of a rat isn't good even in protective custody. Whitey Bulger thought everything was Kool and the Gang until he got shipped somewhere else.

    If this is true that’s stupid. Federal time you have to do like 85% of your sentence. That’s 40 years straight in prison. So he’ll be out by 62, that’s like his whole life.

    He should’ve went to trial, maybe got found not guilty on some charges and got less time. Stupid.

    No ma’am. That is life...What he gone do, get out and go straight to the convalescent home?

    That’s terrible... they could’ve let him get out by 40 or 50 at least. But he gone be 70...

  • 11pink123

    Lol... Sandra my gut says your playing with me right?????. That is a long time in jail... 47 years or life sound the exact same...

    I hope they really don’t put that boy in jail for that long over that stuff. That’s ridiculous... Rapist and ppl that actually shot someone don’t even get that kind of time..

    People get less time on much worst crimes with much more evidence...

  • Y me?

    F u c k that terrorist what if the bullet he ordered to be discharged hit an innocent civilian? And hes a grown MAN not a boy

  • Svetlana????

    It all depends. When you’re dealing with federal Rico charges, if they can link you to being directly involved with multiple gang related crimes, one of which was conspiracy to commit murder, I believe he tried to order another rapper murdered. So it’s serious stuff.

  • Y me?

    He's destroyed his image to the point that ppl will look at him and assume guilty. Even if the rainbow hair grows out he still has those atrocious face tattoos

  • Svetlana????

    In the eyes of his dumb drug addicted fans it won’t matter, they will still support him.

  • Y me?

    Maybe he can share a cell with bobby shmurda

  • Peppermint Patty

    What make you say that?? We talking feds here they dont typically deal out lightweight numbers when it comes to these type of charges cooperating or not.....

    We shouldn't but dammit you KNOW we do!! Hell I slick believe this site more than the bible....& I know I'm not alone

  • Peppermint Patty

    Potential ?.....potential what....

  • Thingamajig

    This doesn’t make sense. A life sentence is 25 years. Why would he agree to 47 years? The information in this write up is completely off, plus 69 don’t even talk like that. Ah well ?????.

  • Peppermint Patty

    Cardi gone b around for a min but dammit I wouldn't mind a female kendrick to step on the scene a steal all the okurrrrs and stupidity she spews and the public sucks up. Where are you millenial Lauryn???!?? How we gone win when we ain't right within!!?!?!! They shoveling shit down our throat!

  • GAPeach

    A life sentence and 25 years aren't the same thing. A lot of people are sentenced to 25 years to life. Some life with possibility of parole, or life with no parole. They are not the same though.

  • Youcan’tbanmesucka

    If you have enough to deal you can cut your sentence. Those fools singing on El Chapo were offered deals for cut time.

    But 2-10 for heroine, attempted murder....hmmmm it's a stretch but anything's possible. All we can say is TOLD YA SO!!!!!

    No empathy here. None. Zero. Who else was he planning to put a hit out on? What innocent person could have been killed because gun violence is what he uses to resolve his issues with others? Is 47 years excessive? Sure it is but so is burying your child from a stray bullet or dealing with their addiction because of the drugs he's bringing into communities. Stand for something even if it means standing alone. You're devastated for what? This man didn't love himself so he damn sure could have never loved you. #grownwomen101

    "Tekashi's plea deal with the government includes a prison sentence of 47 years, according to Instagram blogger @Akademiks."
    ***********************************************************************************

    He did not agree to serve 47 years in a plea deal. Whew someone woke up lying.

    Even though it's obvious that boy is terched in the head, he did not agree to serve any set amount of years. The crimes he's pled guilty to carry a sentence of 47 years. However, because he agreed to snitch and will continue to cooperate/snitch until the start of the trial in January 2020, the prosecutor will recommend a lesser more lenient sentence at the trial, which is really just a formality for him to plead guilty and to determine the ACTUAL sentence.

  • 11pink123

    I know but a lot of ppl had orders on him as well. Every rapper except 50 cent wanted this boy gone.. I’m not saying he innocent but I don’t think he deserves time in jail and def not no 47 years..

    This is what they should’ve did to Zimmerman and those cops who so quick to pull the trigger...

    This is ridiculous to me..

  • the guest

    Heartbreaking.

    Anybody calling Tekashi white is a fool. The prison industrial complex targets urban black and latino boys from the day they are born.

    All the talent, fame, beauty, access, opportunity, wealth in the world and STILL they end up in these traps. To get their families out of poverty they get caught up then they get a chance out the hood but those ties bind them for life and even fame and money can't free them.

    It's a trap. The minute this kid started getting fame and wealth, long before any threat against Chief Keef, they Feds were on the prowl just like they were on Bobby Sjmurda. Chief Keef isn't safe from the Feds either.

  • the guest

    It sounds like he gave them info but NOT THE INFO OR AS MUCH INFO AS THEY WANTED. So they punished him with this deal. I pray this 47 years is not absolute.

  • the guest

    The Feds destroyed Bobby Shmura's spirit.

  • the guest

    Thank you.

  • Parent

    I know right. Blasted him like that. That's messed up.

  • 11pink123

    Well keep your life right with God and eyes on Jesus and you won’t have to go around worrying about no stray bullets.

    Anyways....I don’t think he deserves that much time in comparison with other criminals... my cousin is from a gang and actually did shoot someone and had plenty charges and jail time before that. He got 15 years and.....got out before that...

    My friends dad, broke in someone’s house robbed and killed them and got 25 to life and is out on parole.

    Zimmerman killed someone got no jail time..

    Oj killed someone got no jail time.

    This boy has conspiracy’s and get 47 years... come onnn..

  • the guest

    Not all his fans are dumb drug addicts or young people. The young man is actually a talented writer and vocalist.

  • Parent

    I don't if that's going to help him!

  • Parent

    lmao

  • the guest

    I pray this is so. He's been trying to humble himself and disassociate with the gang over the last year. He deserves a second chance.

  • Queen B

    He didn't rape anyone stfu and stop repeating everything u hear when u don't know facts

  • the guest

    I imagine Tekashi threw that number out to add up to 69 for his brand.

  • Queen B

    Facts!! I dont believe it at all

  • Queen B

    Lol that was kinda funny

  • Queen B

    Lmao ?

  • the guest

    It's not allure. The industry pays them for this life and image and the industry profits off their pain and trapped existence. Where's the industry now? They already got paid now they will find a new Tekashi to exploit use profit off hen discard.

  • Queen B

    He didn't accept any plea deal, he ain't snitching on anyone, and I don't believe he's gonna do rhat much time....all this shît seems off

  • the guest

    Sincerely not funny considering oppression is systemic.

  • the guest

    Minimum or Maximum of 47 years?

  • the guest

    Amen!

    Because that young man has some voice on him and he can write his tail off. And he's as pretty as he want to be. He needed to be modeling and traveling the world not gang banging. But his father was in the gang life and when his father was killed, he got into street life at 12 years old to take care of his family. That's he story of so many of urban young men of color.

  • speakinmymind

    A life sentence is not 25 years. 25 years is 25 years. Geesh can yall google before posting. Also, the attorney drafted the deal based on testimony from him, hence the legalese used.

  • speakinmymind

    People making threats and actually acting on said threats are two different things. Tekashi paid money and attempted murders were carried out.

  • speakinmymind

    The circumstances are not the same, different jurisdictions, multiple charges that fall under RICO statues...not the same as what you describe above.

    What did those people do to him that made him feel he needed to hire someone?

    This is street stuff and I don’t have sympathy for ppl that start stuff and then play victim to the cops when they get a response.

    None of these rappers are capable of killing anyone.. They just run there mouth and let they ppl let off a few bullets in the air to scare ppl.

    Real murderers are not entertainers, they don’t have the patients to do the azz kissing it takes to be an entertainer.

    Some murderers are gangsters but most gangsters are not murderers.

    This boy is not a threat and don’t deserve no 47 years...

  • 11pink123

    I understand... and that’s why I say it’s not fair... they coming at him like he running a mafia... I get it... but the fact is no one was killed... if any of these ppl were really about that life, it would not be in the hands of the feds.

    Takashi is going to jail over his theatrics and being around fake gangsters, same mistake Aaron Hernandez made....

    If any of they ppl were real gangsters, it would’ve remained in the streets, like how suge handled Pac.

    Suge seen who shot Pac and handled it, in the streets...

    All of these rappers just run they mouth, and now the feds are making an example of them.

    He’s is going to jail over his mouth. And no I don’t think that deserves 47 years.

  • AllIN19

    Once the fed's added that damn RICO charge on him that was it. A minimum of 25 years, for 1 damn charge. SMH

  • the guest

    Correct with the exception of white, he’s Latino of Mexican and Puerto Rican Heritage raised in black and latin pre gentrification Bed Stuy Brooklyn.

  • the guest

    Thank you. They are using him to put fear in the souls of black and latino urban male youth. Racism is very alive and well.

  • the guest

    Amen.

  • the guest

    It was not a rape. It was a gang initiation.

  • the guest

    Agreed.

  • the guest

    He’s absolutely learned his lesson.

  • the guest

    It’s real.

  • Svetlana????

    You can’t be serious

  • R in NYC

    BwahaBwahahah....triggered much? And you have just as much evidence that he didn't do it.....
    Silly you...all in your feelings and he doesn't even know you exist.

  • Y me?

    So the recourse for ppl getting extra light sentences for harsh crimes is..... to give more light sentences for harsh crimes? Make it make sense

  • ClaireHuxtable

    With all the time he'll have on his hands he'll come to the conclusion that he didn't have to do any of this to have Joy in his life.

  • gail jones

    You wild!

  • dontgetblocked

    A life sentence equals 25 years to life which means the prisoner can be paroled in 25 years.

  • dontgetblocked

    He was also involved with underage sex with a minor. Some sort of gang initiation.

  • 11pink123

    Breaking into a complete strangers house, robbing them and murdering them is much more harsh then a gang war between 2 rappers who keep threatening “each other.”... and everybody involved is still alive.

    What don’t make sense is someone getting out they car with a gun to approach a innocent teen after the 911 operator told them not to. Then getting off on a technicality of a law, that should have only worked in favor of Travon for defending himself, if Zimmerman ended up dead.

    The only point I’m making is Takashi has obviously pissed someone off with a lot of power, who is now abusing they power to get revenge.. cause ppl do worst crimes and get less time or no time at all....

  • Peppermint Patty

    HER is the truth totally agree....but I'd liken her to a new age floetry/jill scott mixed with a bit of maybe tweet and a splash of aaliyah (only cuz of her beats and softness of her voice at times) ....she ain't knockin cardi off ???unfortunately

  • 11pink123

    nobody deserves no 47 years in jail unless they actually and intentionally hurt someone and or made someone do something against they will..

    Everything else I can think of can be fixed... this is too harsh to me... his little bad self should have moved to Cali if he was trying to be about that gang life. LAPD would have not even wrote a police report for the sillyness named in this case.... if ain’t nobody actually hurt badly, LAPD ain’t messing with it... Don’t even know how they got the feds to step in... It seems as though the feds should only be dealing with real gangs.. not this instagram crap..

  • fRAktal Reality

    Yes. So, where does Tekashi69 come from?

  • Y me?

    I agree with you that the law isn't applied fairly. But i don't think the solution to that is to just let ppl run a muck. How do u think this society would look if everyone got a free pass ?

  • fRAktal Reality

    Say what?! The entertainment industry makes a profit off the criminal services performed by their artists? This scenario sounds very familiar.

  • 11pink123

    I was thinking the same thing. Aint a life sentence only 25 years??

  • 11pink123

    That’s not true a life sentence is only 25 years. Ain’t that why they hit you with multiple life sentences sometimes..

  • 11pink123

    I know.. his butt is bad... but I just think there is much more worst crimes deserving of 47 years... I feel someone got it out for him...

  • 11pink123

    Trust me I don’t want nobody like Tekashi living on my block.. but I’m not for punishing ppl beyond what they deserve either.. It just seems as they going above and beyond the normal call of duty, which makes me feel he made someone with power mad, which makes this personal, which means these charges maybe exaggerated..

  • Peppermint Patty

    Definitely will check her out....maybe sandra can do a woman you should know article??cardi is messing up an entire generation

  • Y me?

    He has federal charges (RICO) not state, which by definition are more harsh. But on top of that i feel like your sympathy would be better given to a first time offender or someone who doesn't have a pattern of poor behavior. This rainbow haired fool had the child sex abuse charge from the little girl he filmed, then an assault charge, then racketeering and gun play and all this b.s. He had his chance to show redemption and he chose not to

  • currvalicious

    He's Hispanic.

  • Queen B

    Its facts honey public records...it ain't about "knowing" him its about yo dumbass learning to stop being a parrot and repeating everything u see on the internet smh

  • Queen B

    Right I hate that smh

  • chaisun

    Mexican and Puerto Rican aren’t race classifications. He himself identifies as white. He’s a white Latino. He may have a very small amount of African ancestry but the rest is surely mestizo, European Spaniard, Native American.

  • chaisun

    Hispanic isn’t a race. He’s white.

  • Love Luv

    They could’ve let the sell of the kilo go. I mean really? He’s already a stomped on squashed skittle.

  • Mrs.Meenie

    Don’t forget the conspiracy to commit murder charge, some people have gotten a life sentence just on that charge alone

  • rob420bie

    If he was beat up by the cops he would be referred to as a POC...not white.

  • MsChocCookie

    He's in here snitching like a mocking bird. He better send his family underground to live with new identities....

  • RealATLPeach36

    When he get out he’s going...to look like a Mexican drug lord. What did he do? I didn’t follow little skittles. Wait his chic pregnant? Welp she better sit and ask him to sign over money.

  • RealATLPeach36

    Shyt same difference to me. I just hope the kid won’t get rape for 47 years.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Negative! Many folk in the Industry tried to warn, and advise him... He hung himself!!

  • FREELANCEPIMPIN

    muhphucka gon be like SIXTY NINE when he get out... #IRONY

  • Trace da Ace

    oh well....knew this was coming...now lets see how long they let him live.....

  • Heat2Hot

    Exactly Sandra and the agreement stipulates that he must continue to cooperate with the Feds so there will be more snitching.

  • MoniquetheGeek

    Meh. Not so much (maybe cause I don't really care for his antics).

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    He has agreed to snitch for a year. That's why his sentencing hearing was pushed back to 2020.
