Tekashi 6ix9ine, real name Daniel Hernandez, was arrested on Monday on 6 counts including racketeering and firearms.

According to the 17-page indictment, obtained by TMZ, the most serious of the charges is the discharging of a firearm while committing a crime. That count carries a possible life sentence, and a mandatory minimum of 25 years in prison.

He was arrested with five others of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang,his ex-manager, Kifano (Shotti) Jordan, Jensel (Ish) Butler, Faheem (Crippy) Walter, Fuguan (Fu Banga) Lovick and Jamel (Mel Murda) Jones.

They were all arrested and denied bail with the exception of Lovick who was already in custody.

Walter was charged last month with gang assault for the shooting that happened the night 6ix9ine received probation and community service in his child sex-abuse case. 6ix9ine and his entourage went to a restaurant his new manager was attending to celebrate but his new manager refused commanding his security to remove Tekashi 6ix9ine and his security off the premises. Walter and 3 or 4 others returned to the restaurant slamming a chair on a security guard (who was a former police officer) and flashed his gun. The security guard saw Walter’s gun and shot him in the chest. They arrested him as he tried to escape in a taxi cab, taking him to a hospital where he refused to cooperate with law enforcement.

The men were busted as part of a joint investigation by the NYPD, Homeland Security Investigations and ATF, a spokesman for the Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

The 17-page indictment alleges that from 2013 to this month the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods crew committed an array of crimes to maintain the gang’s “power, territory and profits.”

Members of Nine Trey sold heroin, fentanyl, MDMA and weed in Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Bronx, prosecutors charge.

Of these crimes committed include:

On April 3rd robbery were Tekashi, Walter, Butler, and Jordan robbed rivals at gunpoint in a lobby. Prosecutors say Tekashi was allegedly sitting in a SUV during the incident filming.

On April 21, Lovick shot inside the Barclays Center in relation to 6ix9ine’s beef with Cassanova.

On July 16, Tekashi, Walter, Butler, and Jordan conspired to kill “an individual who had shown disrespect to Nine Trey,” according to the indictment. Authorities say 20 shots were fired at a cookout were an innocent bystander was shot in the foot.

On July 22, Tekashi was kidnapped and robbed by former security member Anthony Jamel Ellison. Ellison was fired from 6ix9ine’s staff after a fight in February at LAX.

In September, feds raises Tekashi’s apartment to find an AR-15 and the backpack stolen from the incident on April 3rd.

On Friday, November 16, Tekashi sat down with the Breakfast Club to talk about why he fired his entire team

“I just don’t want to be bothered. I want to be left alone. I’m done.”

Tekashi accused his entire team on turning on him and said he wanted nothing to do with them. He also says the only thing he fears is the FBI.

Prosecutor, Michael Longyear, said ex-members of Tekashi’s crew “wanted to super violate him” following his appearance on the ‘Breakfast Club’.

When they heard Tekashi was planning a trip to a casino in Connecticut, they feared innocent lives would be in jeopardy if ex-members of Tekashi’s crew attempted to take 6ix9ine’s life.

So they served the conviction before he could leave.

Tekashi 6ix9ine is facing a mandatory minimum sentence of 32 years in prison.

In 2 Chainz new YouTube series #CrateTalk, he revealed that he was at one point close to signing a deal with Jay-Z. In the inaugural episode, Host 2 Chainz explained to special guest Steve Stoute how it all happened. The conversation starts at the 5:45 mark.

“Hov told me that he wanted to do business with you and you turned him down,” Stoute says

“I was already speaking with Kanye on and off,” 2 Chainz said, “While they was in Paris working on Watch the Throne, Ye would hit me the whole time talking about my mixtapes and just was speaking to me where we just built a great relationship on the phone because we share some of the same similarities, right?”

It was at this point that Jay-Z asked 2-Chainz to get on a flight to New York. 2 Chainz wanted to bring along his friend and business partner, DJ Teknikz, but the request was denied. Because of this 2-Chainz felt it was only right to decline the business meeting out of respect and loyalty to his friend DJ Tek.

No love was lost however, as the pair have been seen together on multiple occasions including the Roc Nation Pre-Grammy Brunch. On 2 Chainz 5th studio album “Rap or Go To The League” he boasts a Jay-Z sample (Lucifer) on the opening track “Forgiven” ft. Marsha Ambrosius. 2 Chainz wanted Jay-Z as feature on his new album but the timing wasn’t right. Hopefully we can get a collaboration from the two artists sometime in the foreseeable future.

Hurricanes transcends the conventions of celebrity memoir to offer an intimate and inspiring portrait of an artist who at every turn defied the odds and continues to change the game,” added Peter Joseph, editorial director of Hanover Square Press.

The book will not shy away from the recording artists fair deal of controversy including the rapper’s past as a drug dealer and correctional officer, as well as incidents such as his seizures, celebrity feuds, drive-by shootings, and his 2015 arrest on kidnapping and assault charges.
