The latest in Tekashi 6ix9ine legal saga: the rapper’s former manager Kifano “Shotti” Jordan has pleaded guilty to two federal weapon counts, officials said.
Jordan and 6ix9ine were both part of the group that was arrested on robbery, racketeering and firearms charges last year. According to Variety, the US Department of Justice released a press statement on Thursday to announce that Jordan confessed to “using and possessing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence” and discharging a firearm with the same intent. The allegations were linked to two separate incidents that happened last April, including an assault in Manhattan and a non-fatal shooting in Brooklyn.
Jordan, whom authorities claim is a high-ranking member of New York City’s Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, may face a lifetime in prison or a mandatory minimum of 15 years.
6ix9ine, on the other hand, pleaded guilty last month to nine counts in his federal case. The rainbow-haired, Dummy Boy has been behind bars since last November and is reportedly cooperating with prosecutors during this investigation in a deal to lighten his 47-year prison sentence. This drew flack from rappers like Snoop Dogg and 50 Cent, who have accused him of snitching.
And it seems like Jordan wasn’t too happy with the rapper’s decision to tell-all, either. In a telephone conversation between Shotti and 6ix9ine’s ex-DJ Pvnch, originally obtained by HipHopNMore, the former called the rapper an “ungrateful rat bastard.” Jordan also added that 6ix9ine snitched “for no reason” and “broke every code and every rule out this motherfucker.”
