Tekashi 6ix9ine and Associates Arrested Faces Gun & Racketeering Charges

Tekashi69 arrest

Federal agents arrested Tekashi 6ix9ine and four associates on gun and racketeering charges.

Tekashi69 and a few of his business associates including his ex-manager, Shottie, are now in federal custody and facing charges of gun and racketeering. The “FEFE” rapper was already on thin ice after a judge in New York sentenced him to probation for his ongoing child sexual assault case. That judge scolds him in court while suggesting that he could be given a much harsher sentence if he gets into any more troubles with the law.

On Sunday night, Tekashi 6ix9ine and a few of his associate’s homes were swarmed by federal agents. The New York rapper and his former manager were arrested on unknown charges. TMZ is now reporting that the controversial rapper is facing racketeering and firearm charges. His former bodyguard, Faheem Walter, also known as Crippy, who was recently shot during an altercation outside a restaurant, was also taken into custody.

6ix9ine went on the record last week about firing Shottie and much of his management team for fleecing him out of millions of dollars. During the same interview with The Breakfast Club, Tekashi69 admitted that he only has two fears, god and the FBI.

In September, Tekashi 6ix9ine home was raided by the FBI who removed boxes of documents, as well as, an illegal gun from the house in Brooklyn. The rainbow hair rapper was not inside the house at the time because he was overseas touring.

If convicted, he could be sentenced to years in prison.
