Tekashi 6ix9ine's former manager Kifano “Shotti” Jordan was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison.
Shotti, previously pled guilty to two federal weapons charges, one count of "firearm possession during a crime" and one count of "firearm discharge during a crime."
Southern District of New York prosecutors asked the court to hand down the sentence after they claim he was heavily involved with the criminal enterprise the 'Nine Trey' Bloods.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, prosecutors say “The defendant was a high-ranking member of the racketeering enterprise known as the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods (“Nine Trey”).” The motion points out several incidents of acts of violence committed by Shotti and Tekashi.
In the documents they allege Shotti, "along with other members of Nine Trey, including Daniel Hernandez, a/k/a “Tekashi 6ix 9ine” and Anthony Ellison, a/k/a “Harv,” followed a rival rap artist, who was a member of a different Bloods set (“Individual-1”), from Brooklyn to a hotel in Manhattan. After they arrived in Manhattan, the defendant and Ellison ran into the hotel lobby, confronted Individual-1 and his entourage, and Ellison punched Individual-1 in the face.”
In a second incident, in March 2018, "Shotti allegedly fired off five rounds against a rival gang member. Prosecutors list another incident, “On April 3, 2018, the defendant and others traveled from Brooklyn to midtown Manhattan in order to rob a rival gang member and rapper (the “April 3 Robbery”), who was in a public feud with Hernandez.”
As we reported, Tekashi 69, decided to turns states evidence and help prosecutors put away other members of the game.
He has been blasted by fans and members of the hip hop community for being a snitch.
Both 6ix9ine and Shotti were arrested in November 2018, and Shotti will likely be in prison until he is nearly 50 years old.
