6ix9ine is still behind bars in his federal racketeering case, but he may be facing even more legal trouble.
According to TMZ, the feds are now investigating the rapper for his possible involvement in the Chief Keef shooting. Prosecutors are reviewing evidence to see if it might lead to any additional charges.
6ix9ine may have implicated himself in a leaked video, which shows him on a FaceTime call with Chief Keef’s cousin, Tadoe, asking if he’s going to be at Keef’s New York hotel. When the call ends, 6ix9ine brags to his crew about placing a $30,000 bounty on Tadoe. The footage is reportedly a key piece of evidence the feds are looking at.
“I got a 30 pack on him right now, bruh,” 69 says in the clip. “I swear to God I got a 30 pack.”
The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of NY and NYPD have declined to comment on whether 6ix9ine is under investigation.
6ix9ine is already facing six federal charges, including racketeering and discharging a firearm while committing a crime. Authorities claim he was involved in conspiring to commit armed robberies, drug deals, and shootings. His trial date has been set for Sept. 4.
Meanwhile, his album Dummy Boy remains in the top 10 on the Billboard 200. It slides 3-8 with 43,000 copies in the week ending Dec. 13.
