The FEFE rapper has reportedly pleaded guilty to eight out of nine counts, including multiple charges of racketeering, conspiracy, firearms offenses and narcotics trafficking.
The 22-year-old, Daniel Hernandez also known as Tekashi 6ix9ine, ‘pleaded not guilty to robbery of rival gang Nine Trey’.
He was indicted last November, and previously pleaded not guilty to racketeering. He was denied bail, with a pre-trial hearing taking place on 22 January, and his trial set to start on 4 September, 2019.
TMZ claims he has now pleaded guilty, with his sentence remaining up in the air for now.
Two of the charges he faced carry a maximum sentence of life in prison, with a minimum of 32 years behind bars.
According to documents obtained by the publication, he was alleged to have been involved in dealing heroin, ecstasy, fentanyl, amphetamines and marijuana.
Tekashi, was arrested in New York at the end of last year, alongside his ex-manager, and two former associates, who are accused of being part of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang.
According to papers filed in court, they ‘committed and agreed, attempted, and threatened to commit acts of violence to protect and expand their narcotics business.
They are alleged to have dealt drugs including MDMA, heroin, marijuana and fentanyl across New York.
Papers reportedly state Tekashi waited in a car outside an office building while his associates robbed some of the rapper’s rivals, in April.
An AR-15 style rifle was also allegedly recovered at his Brooklyn home in September. ‘As alleged in the indictment, this gang, which included platinum-selling rap artist Tekashi 6ix9ine, wreaked havoc on New York City, engaging in brazen acts of violence.
US Attorney Geoffrey S Berman previously said in a statement in regards to the charges. ‘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.
Hernandez’s lawyer previously claimed he ‘became victim of this enterprise and later took steps by firing employees and publicly denounced this enterprise through a morning show.
