Tekashi 6ix9ine has been arrested multiple times as a minor and before he became the famous rapper he is today.
Tekashi even served time for possession of heroin and assault charges. There are other things you probably didn’t even knot about 6ix9ine’s time served behind bars.
Child sex charges:
In October 2015 6ix9ine pleaded guilty to engaging in sexual acts with a child. He, along with another rapper raped a 13-year-old girl and filmed it.
Later in a 2017 interview he claimed that there was no sexual contact, that he didn’t know she was a minor, and that he was 17 at the time.
All of those claims can be easily disputed because he filmed the sexual contact, he had already plead guilty to child sex charges (so it’s obvious he knew she was a minor), and his birth date shows that he was 18 at the time.
He was given a plea deal that included passing his GED test otherwise he would face three years prison. Surprise surprise, he failed his GED test. Legal problems persisted and he was sentenced with four years probation and 1000 public service hours.
Choking at shopping mall:
In July of 2018 he was arrested, once again. This time for allegedly choking a 16 year old girl at a shopping mall. The girl decided to not take legal action, so all charges were dropped.
Shooting of Chief Keef:
In summer 2018 the rapper Chief Keef was fired upon in New York. 6ix9ine was the predominant suspect because the two had a feud. He pleaded guilty to hiring someone to shoot Chief Keef.
Murder conspiracy, robbery, and firearm arrest:
Fall 2018 rolls around and 6ix9ine finds himself in court again. This time for conspiracy of murder, armed robbery, and possession of firearms. He and two other gang members were arrested. He served time in prison, where he got into multiple fights with rival gangs.
Nine Trey Gang:
6ix9ine was part of an elaborate gang that was arrested for armed robbery, murder conspiracy, and possession of firearms. He was faced with a possible 47 years in jail.
Yet a plea deal was signed in which he had to testify against some of the ten other members of the gang who already had criminal charges that were being looked into.
This caused major media attention with many people calling him a “snitch”. He was given a sentence of two years.
Eventually, he admitted to abusing his ex-girlfriend and mother to his child for over seven years.
As of now, he is a free man. He was released from prison and is on house arrest. Because of COVID-19 and his asthma condition he has been allowed out of jail six months early.
