The 22-year-old rapper aka Daniel Hernandez was arrested on racketeering and firearm charges, according to law enforcement sources and TMZ.
It's said that Tekashi and his crew ordered hits on their rival gang members in lieu of protecting their drug business along with robberies, shootings, and assaults. But, thats not it...
TMZ reported that the arrest was a joint effort between ATF, NYPD and Homeland Security. 69 will be arraigned in federal court Monday.
Tekashi's former manager, Kifano Jordan, and three of his associates were also arrested. All 4 men are facing racketeering and firearms charges.
Just last month, 69 was in court for another incident and sentenced to four years probation for using a child in a sexual performance in 2015. Online videos were exposed online leading Tekashi to plead guilty of him sexually engaging with an underage girl. At the time of the incident, Hernandez was 18 years old. The minor was 13.
69 was seen touching and fondling the minor's body parts, and standing behind her while "making a thrusting motion with his pelvis and smacking her on the buttocks," according to a complaint filed with the criminal court of New York.
Initially 69 was facing 1-3 years in prison. In addition to his probation, the rapper will have to complete 1,000 hours in community service. He was also previously arrested in July on a Texas warrant for allegedly choking a 16-year-old.
According to genius.com when Tekashi was a minor he served time for selling heroin and assaulting the owner of a bodega, the music website.
