Tekashi 6ix9ine has been arrested on federal racketeering and firearms charges, law enforcement sources told The Post on Monday. It pains me to report on someone I loathe.
The inked-up “Gummo” rapper from Brooklyn was collared Sunday night by agents who also rounded up his just-fired manager, Kifano “Shottie” Jordan, and two former associates, Faheem “Crippy” Walter and Jensel “Ish” Butler, sources said.
The arrests are the latest legal drama for Tekashi and his crew.
The 22-year-old Bushwick-born artist, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, is already on four years probation for posting an online video of a 13-year-old engaged in a sex act.
He also was recently ordered to stay out of trouble for a year after copping a conditional discharge in a cop-assault case in Brooklyn.
The fresh set of federal charges could send him off to prison.
Jordan, meanwhile, faces gang assault and weapons possession charges related to a security guard dust-up earlier this month.
Walter, 29, was also arrested in connection to that incident.
All four men are in federal custody and will be hauled before a judge in Manhattan federal court later in the afternoon.
Tekashi’s lawyer Lance Lazzaro said he couldn’t comment on the new charges because he hasn’t yet seen the complaint.
But he was confident the rapper will walk out of court Monday because the alleged conduct happened prior to him being placed on probation.
“He should get bail. He has no flight history, no warrants,” Lazzaro said.
NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea confirmed Tekashi’s arrest at an unrelated press conference Monday morning.
“Daniel Hernandez has been taken into custody, as well as a number of other individuals,” Shea said. “We’re working closely with [federal prosecutors], partners up in Homeland Security and the [Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives], and we’ll have more to say in the days to come.”
