Rapper, Tekashi 6ix9ine and his crew have been in the news for their ongoing racketeering case trial. From the looks of it, it seems no one’s going Scot free, as prosecutors are bent on making them pay for all their crimes.
Tekashi‘s former manager, Kifano “Shotti” Jordan has reportedly been sentenced to 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to one count of firearm possession during a crime and one count of firearm discharge during a crime. Pitchfork reports that this was confirmed by the Southern district of New York. Both charges reportedly stem from two different incidents dating back to April 2018 which also involved Tekashi.
Shotti was reportedly arrested back in November of 2018, around which time Tekashi was also arrested. The rainbow-maned rapper’s former manager was originally charged with racketeering conspiracy, violent crimes in aid of racketeering and firearms use, all in six counts. In March of this year, Shotti after a plea agreement, pleaded guilty to the firearm possession and discharge charges a little after Tekashi had pleaded guilty to racketeering conspiracy, multiple firearms offenses, narcotics trafficking, and a few other charges.
The charges stem from two incidents that happened back in April last year all of which involved Shotti, Tekashi and members of their crew. On April 3, Shotti, Tekashi and their crew robbed a rival gang member with Shotti holding a firearm while the robbery happened. The second; on April 21, Shotti fired two shots at an individual (who had disrespected him, Tekashi and their crew at a restaurant) and someone else when they went after them in a car following the restaurant incident.
