Tekashi 6ix9ine Arrested For Racketeering & Firearms

Tekashi 6ix9ine, the NY enfant-terrible rap star, has been arrested on charges of racketeering and firearms.

Brooklyn rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine (real name Daniel Hernandez) was arrested Sunday and is facing federal racketeering and firearms charges, law enforcement sources told The Daily Beast. It is believed Hernandez was arrested alongside his former manager, Kifano Jordan, plus two other associates including security guard Faheem Walter (aka Crippy). All four are expected to be arraigned Monday afternoon in a Manhattan federal court, and given the 22-year-old Hernandez's criminal history, prison time seems likely.
