Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine sentenced to 2 years in prison for gang violence

Tekashi 6ix9ine has been handed a 2-year jail sentence over his involvement with a violent street gang ‘ Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods’ which fueled his rise to fame. 

The Brooklyn rapper pleaded guilty earlier this year to charges accusing him of being a member of Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods. He also pleaded guilty to racketeering, firearms and drug trafficking charges related to a series of shootings and assaults around New York City.

The rapper who was spared a much harsher possible sentence because of his extraordinary decision to snitch on his gang members, has already served 13 months and will be released in late 2020. He was also sentenced to five years supervised release plus 300 hours of community service.

Announcing the sentence which is far lower than federal guidelines for the crimes, US district Judge Paul Engelmayer said; 

“Your cooperation was impressive. It was game changing. It was complete and it was brave.”

 Before being sentenced on Wednesday, Tekashi spoke of his remorse and how he failed the young fans who look up to him. He stressed that he’d change his ways when he’s out of prison. He also directly apologized to a woman who told the court that she was shot in the foot in a July 2018 shooting in Brooklyn.

 He said;

“I’m not a victim. I put myself in this position from day one.  I’m happy that the public was able to witness me dealing with the consequences of my actions because I feel like it sheds a light on what can come from gang affiliation. 

“I made a lot of bad choices in life, but that does not make me a bad person.”
