A 17-page indictment obtained by TMZ says Tekashi is facing 6 counts, the most serious of which is discharging a firearm while committing a crime. That count carries a possible life sentence and a mandatory minimum of 25 years in prison. His former manager, Shottie, who was also nabbed on Sunday is facing the same 6 counts.
Cops strongly believe the rapper himself pulled an armed robbery on April 3 along with his manager at the time and 2 other members of the “Nine Trey Bloods.” According to the docs, they robbed gang rivals at gunpoint.
The gossip site also reports that prosecutors say their crimes were intended to protect the gang’s drug business, retaliate against rival gangs while promoting 6ixNine’s reputation on the streets.
The indictment, first reported by the NY Daily News, lists 17 counts dating all the way back to 2013. It has also been reported that the latest federal charges will likely impact Tekashi’s probation in the sex crime case.
