Life comes at you fast.
According to indictment records obtained by TMZ, musician Tekashi 6ix9ine faces a possible life sentence and a mandatory minimum of 25 years behind bars after recent charges stemming from his racketeering and firearm arrest.
Sunday night (Nov. 18), the "FEFE" rapper and two of his cohorts were arrested in New York City. The indictment obtained by the site states that Tekashi and his team conspired to commit several crimes, such as armed robbery, drug deals and shootings. 17 counts are listed in the indictment, which date back to 2013.
"Tekashi is facing 6 counts ... the most serious of which is discharging a firearm while committing a crime," writes the site. "Prosecutors say the acts of violence were intended to protect the gang's drug biz, retaliate against rival gangs or promote Nine Trey's rep on the streets."
This news comes barely a week after Tekashi revealed that he canceled his U.S. tour and fired his entire team. Also this month, shots were fired on the Beverly Hills set of his music video, in which Kanye West and Nicki Minaj are a part.
The Brooklynite just avoided jail time stemming from a child sexual misconduct case, however, his arrest over the weekend violates his probation.
