'Teakashi 69' Will Be 69 Years When He Completes His Prison sentence

The rapper was arrested in November last year on racketeering and weapons charges by agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), as part of a joint investigation with Homeland Security Investigations and the New York City Police Department.

Following his arrest, a 17-page indictment was released by the Department of Justice, which explained Tekashi was one of six people arrested for being associated with, or a member of a violent New York City gang.

According to unsealed court documents cited by The Daily Beast, on January 23 the 22-year-old agreed to cooperate with federal government officials and pleaded guilty to nine charges, including multiple charges of racketeering, conspiracy, and weapons-related offences.

Tekashi admitted his involvement in the Nine Trey Blood Gang, telling Manhattan U.S. District Judge Paul Englemayer:

“In the fall of 2017, i met and joined the nine trey blood gang. As a member of nine trey, the enterprise engaged in such activities including shooting at people, robbing people, and at times drug trafficking.
