Tekashi 6ix9ine Arrested For Racketeering & Firearms

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

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. TMZ reports that ATF agents arrested 6ix9ine and three other men in NY last night.

Longyear also said the rapper was a threat to flee because of his worldwide connections, hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash and the knowledge that a conviction would bring a mandatory minimum sentence of 32 years in prison and as much as life.

An attorney who has previously represented Hernandez did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment Monday. Reports Consequence of Sound, five individuals - Tekashi 6ix9ine (née Daniel Hernandez), his ex-manager Shotti (Kifano Jordan), Ish (Jensel Butler), Crippy (Faheem Walter), and Fu Banga (Fuguan Lovick) - were formally charged with 17 crimes as alleged members of the Bloods street gang known as Nine Trey Bloods. It was unclear whether they had defense attorneys.


6ix9ine has been among the most ascendant and controversial names in hip-hop in recent months. His debut album, Day69, was among the most downloaded records on iTunes following its February release.

The feds claim 6ix9ine, Shottie and others participated in a gunpoint robbery in April of 2018, on West 40th and 8th Ave.

6ix9ine has publicly identified himself as a member of a violent NY gang, 9 Trey Bloods. The plan didn't work and an innocent bystander was shot at Fulton St. and Utica Ave., authorities said. "He will be arraigned today in the Southern District of NY".
