Tekashi 6ix9ineis no longer on probation, stemming from his 2015 guilty plea to the use of a child in a sexual performance.
Back in October, the Brooklyn rapper was sentenced to four years of probation and 1,000 hours community service after he filmed a 13-year-old girl in a sexual performance. The ruling was seen as a win for 6ix9ine—legal name Daniel Hernandez—as prosecutors were initially pushing for a one- to three-year prison sentence. But, as we would find out later, the controversial artist couldn’t stay out of trouble.
Less than a month after 6ix9ine’s sentencing, he and his affiliates were arrested on a slew of charges, including racketeering and weapons-related counts. He now faces up to life in prison and has remained behind bars.
On Wednesday, a New York judge dismissed the rapper’s child sex case because his current incarceration wouldn’t allow him to complete the terms of his probation. 6ix9ine’s attorney, Lance Lazzaro, confirmed the news to TMZ.
Wiretap transcripts of multiple ex-6ix9ine crew members obtained by TMZ, revealed that Jamal Jones, also known as Mel Murda of the Nine Trey Blood gang, and Tekashi’s ex-manager, Kifano Jordan, also known as, Shotti, were possibly plotting to murder their former rap star in Tekashi69.
During their recorded conversation, Jones states the following,
“[Tekashi] is trying to dry snitch at the same time, homie. But he keep saying, f*** Treway, f*** that n****, Treyway. Ain’t no n****, Treway. F*** Treway.”
“[I have] zero connection to this criminal case against Daniel Hernandez and other co-defendants,” he told TMZ. “I view them as good people to me. All these charges are a shock to me and do not involve me. I have never been questioned or much less cooperated in this. I am just a news reporter.”
On Wednesday, Akademiks went on a rant denying any involvement in the case.
“So this website runs it and idiots, everybody, took that and resourced it,” he explained on Twitch. “That’s what n***s are really bad at. Look, 6ix9ine fired Shotti and TreyWay, what the fuck is all of this? The thing is people believe that because people have been salivating for when 6ix9ine gets beat.”
Lol I just read I was facing federal obstruction charges and the feds put pressure on me. This is too hilarious. Y’all gotta stop listening to dumb media personality and salacious blogs tryna capitalize on a big story. I should sue a lot of y’all for slander n defamation for LIES
Meek Mill stopped by the Neighborhood to talk about a lot of things like his upcoming album ‘Championships’, ending the beef with Drake, prison reform and his low key Instagram addiction. I think most people can relate to spending hours and hours on IG and seeing hot girls like Rihanna in our feed.
On ending beef with Drake:
“Me and him had actually been in contact for a year before. But me, I’m more into the real way,” Meek said about their onstage reunion. “When we both was ready for that, we already was in contact, and he had a tour going on. If it had been my tour I would have tried to plan it the same way. We’re just representing building bridges, it’s 2019.”
In an interview with Vulture, he further reflected on how they resolved their issues. “I think it took both of us going through some ups and downs, me in my career. It made me stronger,“ he said. “I’m moving off love right now, so it was only proper to link with someone I actually did business with before and called my friend before.”
On rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine:
All that shit you doing is stupid, at this point. I know you might have gotten on from doing it and it worked out to be able to make some money, but I think you need to slow down. “I think you beefing with too many people right now. You putting the wrong energy out, and the world will deliver the energy that you putting out.”
“I want to tell him…stop putting that energy out. You getting money out. Nobody wanna live like that. You can’t live with 10 security guards forever.”
“The charge he got is a little crazy. He facing like life in prison. Them people know that he ain’t responsible for all the things that people around him was doing. I don’t think he was the top influencer. I think he’s a good kid that got caught up in the internet and trolling.”
On Cardi B:
Cardi B is featured on a track off his upcoming fourth studio album, titled Championships, set to drop on Nov. 30.
“I got a feature with Cardi B,” he said. “Cardi B from New York. She’s one of the hottest from New York right now, so it’s a perfect connection.”
Meek clarified that he and Cardi B were never in the studio together. He added that rappers don’t record together in studios anymore.
“That’s my friend’s wife… In our generation we don’t do that. Why I’ma be in the studio rappin’ wit yo’ wife?
Interesting quotes from Meek Mill’s Vulture interview.
On ex-girlfriend Nicki Minaj name-dropping him on her August track, “Barbie Dreams”:
“I ain’t get no heads-up, but I definitely wasn’t in nobody’s DMs. And definitely wasn’t nobody ducking me, shit. That’s a fact,” he said about the song. “I actually was laughing at it, too. ‘Cause there’s no limits. I felt it and I liked it. That’s a dope rap.”
He, T.I., and Lil Wayne have traded prison stories.
Their cases may have been unjust. I heard Lil Wayne didn’t even have a gun, that somebody on their bus had a gun and they gave it to the rapper. But when you’re found guilty, how can you speak on that?” he says. “With T.I., his friend was shot and murdered while he was in the car. He’s a felon so he can’t carry a gun. What do you do?” After his latest prison stint, Meek recalls trading war stories with his rap peers. “You know, they lock celebrities in their cell 23 hours of the day [allegedly for their protection], and I always felt like that shit was crazy. What about the protection of your mental [health]? We talked about how that shit was crazy. I think Wayne liked being in the room by himself, but for everybody else, that’s a crazy situation.”
A pre-trial conference is set for January 22 and the trial is scheduled for September. The rapper, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, and his co-defendants, who also pled not guilty, will remain in custody, where they have been since Nov. 18, although it is unclear for how long.
TMZ reports that Lance Lazarro, the rapper’s attorney, is planning to apply for bail directly to the trial judge; Lazarro did not immediately respond to Variety’s requests for comments.
“We don’t fold, we don’t bend, we don’t break,” Shotti (Kifano Jordan), 6ix9ine’s former manager, said in court Monday, according to Complex, although the context was unclear. “It’s Tr3yway.”
Karen Civil spills the tea with The Cruz morning show about all of the latest drama in the rap game. From Drake and Pusha T to Tekashi 6ix9ine and Mac Miller and more.
Karen also had an endearing friendship with the late rapper Mac Miller who passed early September. Sharing her last moments with Malcolm, Karen states:
The last thing that he said to me was I love you, I’m always going to be here for you. At the end of the day, it’s been very hard for me. I’m not going to pretend. At night, that’s when it hits me the most because that’s when I would talk to him and we would text or we would be on Facetime, just the little things…I just feel like he finds ways to bring himself back into my life and to let me know everything is going to be okay.
Karen Civil goes on to name Jay Rock, YG, Nipsey Hussle, Mac Miller, Teyana Taylor and Lil Wayne’s album releases as her favorite projects this year, gives her perspective on Pusha T’s Toronto attack drama and also comments on the news surrounding 6ix9ine’s Federal arrest.
Back in June, Tekashi69 denied his crew took a shot at Chief Keef in an interview with TMZ.
Law enforcement sources say NYPD wants to see if Tekashi has any connection to the 2 men who shot at Keef outside the W Hotel in Times Square. 6ix9ine was in L.A. at the time. Click Here if you missed that.
This week A video appearing to show rapper 6ix 9ine ordering a hit on a rival rapper surfaced Friday, days after the rainbow-haired rapper was reportedly moved from federal custody for his own safety in the wake of a federal racketeering indictment, according to reports.
In the video, Tekashi 6ix9ine, whose legal name is Daniel Hernandez, appears to be speaking on FaceTime with Tadoe, cousin of influential Chicago drill rapper Chief Keef, real name Keith Cozart, and taunting him, asking him when was the last time he shot someone and saying Tadoe was no longer welcome in Chicago, TMZ reports.
At the end of the conversation, in which Hernandez also tries to discern Tadoe’s location, he hands the phone off to a friend before boasting that he’s “got a 30 pack” on him.
“Thirty thousand cash, right now,” Hernandez says, smiling.
The video was recorded in late may, TMZ reports, just days before someone shot at Cozart outside the W Hotel in Manhattan.
