Tekashi 6ix9ine and his ex-manager Shottie have been arrested on racketeering and firearms charges, and were both taken into custody by federal agents on Sunday night, November 18. Tekashi’s former bodyguard, Faheem “Crippy” Walter, was also arrested and will be arraigned on Monday, November 19 in Manhattan federal court. Racketeering is a federal charge under the 1970 RICO act and has a 93 percent conviction rate, making prison time likely for the 22-year-old. Tekashi 6ix9ine recently fired his entire Tr3way and MTA booking team, accusing them of skimming $120,000 from a $3.6 million concert deal, which his former team denies.
