In June of this year, Urban Islandz reported that Tekashi 6ix9ine is under investigation for possible involvement in Chief Keef shooting incident at a hotel in New York City in the same month. NYPD launched an investigation but no arrest was ever made relating to the shooting incident, and thankfully, the Chicago rapper or anyone else wasn’t hurt. TMZ released a video showing Tekashi69 talking to Sosa’s cousin Tadoe on FaceTime.
The clip appears to have been recorded just a short time before Chief Keef flew to New York and booked into the hotel where the shooting went down. 6ix9ine asked Tadoe if he was going to be at the hotel with Sosa in NYC. After the conversation between the two rappers ended, 69 told his crew that he had already placed a $30,000 bounty on Tadoe.
Tekashi 6ix9ine was in Los Angeles at the time of the shooting, and when asked about it when paparazzi caught up with him, he denied having anything to do with it. As for the $30K bounty on Tadoe, that’s 69 admitting on camera that he took out a hit on Chief Keef’s cousin. Whether or not that’s enough evidence for prosecutors to charge him, only time will tell.
6ix9ine is currently held without bond on six charges of gun, drugs, and racketeering. New York prosecutors say he is a part of a vicious gang called Nine Trey Bloods who have been wreaking havoc in the Brooklyn and Manhattan area over the past couple of years. The “FEFE” rapper was transferred to a new detention center earlier this week that is used for inmates who cut deals with the feds. His attorney said that he was moved to the new prison for security reasons, but there are already speculations that he could be cooperating with the feds.
If convicted, Tekashi69 could be sent to prison for life.
