Tekashi 6ix9ine Facing Additional Charges Over Chief Keef Shooting Case
The Feds are now reviewing footage to assess Tekashi's involvement.
Things just keep getting worse for Tekashi 6ix9ine. The Feds have reportedly launched an investigation into Tekashi's involvement in the Chief Keef shooting case to see if it may lead to any additional charges, TMZ reports.
Federal prosecutors are reportedly reviewing evidence from the case after police suggested the Brooklyn rapper implicated himself on tape. TMZ previously posted leaked footage in which 6ix9ine is heard saying that he's got a "30 pack" on Tadoe, Chief Keef's cousin. Feds think this may be evidence that the "Stoopid" artist ordered a hit on Tadoe. Additionally, one of the men who allegedly followed Chief Keef prior to the shooting, is a "known associate" of Tekashi's.
As previously reported, Chief Keef and his team were shot at after leaving the W Hotel in New York City's Times Square in June 2018. Luckily no one was injured. Nevertheless, the leaked video suggested the rapper was inquiring about Keef and Tadoe's whereabouts, although he does not say anything explicit about the shooting. Tekashi was previously under investigation by local authorities, but it was later handed to the Feds.
Ordering a hit on someone is just the cherry on top of an already extensive list of offenses. The rapper is currently facing prison time for racketeering. The court is also looking into re-sentencing Tekashi in his child sex case after the rapper was previously given four years of probation.
