6ix9ine And Ex-Manager Arrested On RICO Charges
6ix9ine And Ex-Manager Arrested On RICO Charges: This year has been full of ups and downs for Tekashi 6ix9ine. He’s been on top of the world at moments and nearly disgraced at others. The controversial charges surrounding a child sex videotape continue to haunt the rapper as he preps his upcoming Dummy Boy project but now, he may be in some unrelated hot water.
Multiple sources are reporting that 6ix9ine and his ex-manager, Shottie, have been arrested by the feds on RICO charges. The news was first shared by DJ Akademiks, a close ally of Tekashi’s, as he began the “Free 6ix9ine” movement on his socials. Considering the timing of all of this, some are suspecting that this could be a publicity stunt. However, the story is being picked up by several sources, meaning there could be some legitimacy attached to it.
6ix9ine and Shottie are reportedly in federal custody after getting busted on racketeering charges and, according to TMZ, he’s almost certainly headed to prison because of it. Other suspects include Faheem Walter, AKA Crippy, and another man associated with the rapper. All four men are facing firearms and racketeering charges. The news comes after Tekashi fired all of his team last week.
Tekashi is currently on probation, meaning that he will likely be spending time in the slammer. Depending on how serious the charges are, he could be facing a long time in prison. As the story develops, we’ll update you.

STORY via TMZ – Tekashi69, his recently fired manager and 2 other former associates are in federal custody after getting busted on racketeering charges — which almost certainly means the rapper's going to prison … TMZ has learned. Law enforcement sources tell us … 6ix9ine was arrested Sunday night by ATF agents in NYC, and the agents also hauled in his ex-manager, Shottie, at the same time. You'll recall Tekashi had just fired Shottie and much of his management team last week. One of the other suspects arrested is Faheem Walter — aka Crippy — who got shot a few weeks ago during the altercation with Tekashi's record label head. All 4 men are facing racketeering and firearms charges. We're told the investigation was a joint effort by ATF, NYPD and Homeland Security. Tekashi was already skating on thin ice. As we reported, the judge who gave him probation in his child sex case had warned him to keep his nose clean … or he'd be going straight to prison.
