It was November of 2018 when the world of hip-hop was shaken with the news of the arrest of the rapper Tekashi69 (also 6ix9ine or Daniel Hernandez, which is what you put in your passport), a rising star in the field of music emerged, like so many young people occurrences, of the social networks. But also, a guy problemáticor that was closely followed by the authorities for their ongoing tours by the courts to be tried for various crimes. The first that had to deal with was the of sexual abuse of minors, sexual intercourse with a minor of 13 years old when he was 18, in 2015, long before being famous.
Such a crime is not imprisoned, but was sentenced to four years of probation; the time in which you should not be getting into any other mess. However, he returned to fall, because in 2018 was involved in a crime of use of weapons, and conspiracy for a series of more crimes, including matters of drug trafficking, armed robberies, violence around fans and even threats and crimes with firearms. This time, the judge will not let him go quietly to his home. Despite being a well-known artist and themes in the number one of the charts of half the world, he had to pay for their crimes.
The condemnation for everything that he was accused was so long that the rapper probably wouldn’t see the light of day, but he found a curious output: to betray all his accomplices in order reduce its worth. The problem is that his companions were all members of the dangerous street gang Nine Trey Gangster Bloodsknown primarily for his extreme violence and drug trafficking in New York. Thanks to snitch to the whole world (including the singer Cardi B), the rapper has won a sentence of two years in prison, of which it seems that has come with life, despite being jailed with former members of the band.
In its beginnings Tekashi 6ix9ine was defined as a gangster (AP)
“Your cooperation was impressive. It was something revolutionary. It was total and was brave“well,” said the judge Paul Egelmayer in the court of Manhattan, who managed to escape a jail sentence of up to 47 years behind bars. indicated to local media. His collaboration with the authorities and his testimony against other members of the band earned him a lenient sentence.
At the beginning of 2019, the defendant, 23-year-old pleaded guilty to the charges brought by belonging to the “Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods”, at the same time that he admitted to having funded the group. As part of the settlement reached, Hernandez agreed to testify against two prominent members of the band and at the same time acknowledged that he had collaborated in an attempt to kill a member of a rival group, which resulted in a citizen innocent got hurt by a bullet.
Then Tekashi 6ix9ine expressed regret for having joined the band, and asked forgiveness of his family, his followers and victims. “I am not a victim. I got in this situation from the first day”said the artist, who added that it took “a lot of bad decisions in life”, although it noted that it does not make you a bad person,” said the young man, who until the trial had already spent 13 months in prison.
What got kicked out of school at the age of eight and his father murdered him. He himself said that he began to sell drugs to help support his family.
In addition, in another letter addressed to the judge in the case, said he was “pleased” by the fact that the public has been able to see the consequences of their actions. “I feel that it gives visibility to what you can wear to join a band”, he said. “I feel that it gives visibility to what you can wear to join a band,” he said.
Tekashi was sentenced to two years, but how he had already accumulated a long time in jail could get out now. Is that due to the coronavirus, the judge who sent him to prison considers that it must be confined to his house by risk of contagion given its status asthmaticus. If it produces its output, the rapper would come out four months ahead of schedule.
Anyway his decision to cooperate with the left exposed in several ways. On the one hand put in danger the life of the rapper, which was threatened several times during his imprisonment. In both his public figure was also punished as it is transformed into an object of mockery on the social networks by other artists, who tagged him “buchón”.
Now he hopes to return to fame with his contract to return to sing for $ 10 million.
Now, what you do, it will not be in the witness protection program, because he told the portal TMZ at the time, the rapper refused. The reason? A record contract of $ 10 million with 10KProjects, his former record label, which will make it impossible to live in the underground (nor would with those facial tattoos), because they have to comply with the production of two new musical works. The rapper is aware that the band can have it as a goal you put a foot on the streetbut it is sure that your security personnel will be enough to protect you during all hours of the day.
What will become of your life now? Some consider that there is not a lot of life as such, as it has been made a few powerful enemies to those that do not like nothing more than to take revenge. So, you will need to take advantage of to record their music with that lucrative recording contract and fighting back in the courts, with two lawsuits that await you when you leave: two victims of a shooting that he was accused directly and the company textil Fashion Nova, who do I report this for fraud. The freedom to Tekashi, you will have a very high cost.
