  • Tekashi 69 Is Reportedly Arrested And Taken Into Custody For Unknown Reasons

Having trolled the world of rap music for the last few years and after appearing to believe he was untouchable, rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine was arrested in NY on RICO charges which can carry very lengthy prison sentences.

Rapper Daniel Hernandez, known as Tekashi 6ix9ine, performed, September 21, during the Philipp Plein women's 2019 Spring-Summer collection, unveiled during the Fashion Week in Milan, Italy.

His album Day69: Graduation Day was among the most downloaded records on iTunes following its release in February. It carries a possible life sentence, and a mandatory minimum of 25 years in prison.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Henry B. Pitman concluded an hourlong hearing by citing "troubling" corroborating evidence offered by a prosecutor to show that 6ix9ine directed or participated in multiple acts of violence over the last eight months.

RapperTekashi 6ix9ine, along with five gang members, have been charged with racketeering and using or carrying a firearm at Manhattan Federal Court on Monday after "wreaking havoc" on New York City.

According to TMZ, Tekashi, real name Daniel Hernandez, is now in federal custody along with his former manager Shottie.

Tekashi69 was recently given probation in a child sex case in Brooklyn. "Showing reckless indifference to others' safety, members of the gang were allegedly involved in robberies and shootings, including a shooting inside the crowded Barclay's Center, and a shooting in which an innocent bystander was hit".

6ix9ine has had several run-ins with law enforcement.

Prosecutors said the gang carried out acts of murder, robbery and narcotics trafficking in Manhattan, the Bronx and Brooklyn since at least 2013. 6ix9ine said last week that he had fired Shottie and the rest of his management team.

Court filings say that one of the Nine Trey's main purposes was "keeping victims and potential victims in fear of the Enterprise and its members and associates through acts and threats of violence". Sentencing in the case dragged on for years until, last month, a NY judge gave Hernandez four years of probation and required him to complete community service, refrain from gang affiliation, and avoid future arrests.
