Brooklyn rapper 6ix9ine and his associates: ex-manager Kifano Jordan (“Shotti”), Jensel Butler (“Ish”), and Faheem Walter (“Crippy”), were arrested this past Sunday (Nov.18) on firearms and racketeering charges, according to the New York Police Department.
The news comes after the 22-year-old rapper, real name Daniel Hernandez, allegedly fired his whole management team and canceled his upcoming world tour. During an interview with The Breakfast Club last week, Hernandez revealed that he had feared only two things in life, God and the feds.
“Only two things I’m scared of in life, God first and the FBI.”
6ix9ine is being held in federal custody and is scheduled to be arraigned at the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on Monday (Nov. 19).
The rapper was recently sentenced to four years probation following a child sex case. As part of his probation, the “FeFe” rapper was ordered to complete 1,000 hours of community service and avoid additional arrests and any gang association.
The news of his latest arrest comes ahead of the release of his debut album Dummy Boy scheduled to release this Friday (Nov. 23) with contributions from Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, and Tory Lanez.
