6ix9ine’s former manager has pleaded guilty to two weapons charges.
According to Page Six, Kifano “Shotti” Jordan, a high-ranking member of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods crew, was indicted in connection to an armed robbery in April 2018 in Manhattan and discharging a firearm during a shooting at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
In February, Tekashi pleaded guilty to nine federal charges including hiring a hitman to kill Chief Keef and distributing drugs. The 22-year-old rapper struck a deal with the feds in an attempt to lighten his sentence.
His cooperation with authorities has sparked backlash. Speaking to Tekashi’s former DJ Pvnch from jail, Shotti put his former client on blast for snitching. “This n***a, he broke every code and every rule out this motherfucker,” he said (via HotNewHipHop). “He’s an ungrateful rat bastard, man. It’s just that simple. But I forgive the little ni**a after all that.”
Shotti faces a minimum prison sentence of 15 years for the two counts. Despite the circumstances, he has vowed to come out on top. “Everybody might think it’s over,” said Shotti. “I promise you, they ain’t even heard half my story. My shit ain’t done. I don’t break, I don’t fold, I don’t bend.”
Tekashi, who remains behind bars, recently scored a legal victory. A judge has allowed his former attorney, Lance Lazarro, to once again represent him in his case. He is scheduled to be sentenced in January 2020.
