Tekashi6ix9ine Arrested On Racketeering Charges
TMZ is reporting that Tekashi6ix9ine has been arrested by the Feds on racketeering and firearm charges. Tekashi, his former manager and two other people were taken into custody on Sunday.
Tekashi fired his team, including his manager, just last week. It was just a matter of time before the law caught up to him again, right? Further details of the case involving the rapper—whose real name is Daniel Hernandez—were to be announced at an afternoon arraignment in Manhattan federal court.
Three Tekashi associates were also arrested in the operation, including Kifano “Shotti” Jordan, who was his manager until he abruptly fired the entire team last week. Also busted was Faheem “Crippy” Walter, who was previously charged with gang assault after a confrontation at a Tekashi celebration, which left him wounded. Jensel “Ish” Butler was also charged.
