Popular NYC rapper 6ix9ine and a handful of his associates are facing lengthy prison sentences over a medley of charges including racketeering, firearm possession, and breaking probation.

6ix9ine, who’s seen a rapid rise in popularity as both a rapper and public figure, has made no secret his affiliation to the New York arm of the notorious Bloods gang. As such, his outspoken support of the gang has garnered the ire of many a celebrity and common rival gang member. Even some within the Bloods question his involvement in the gang.

His volatile social media and public antics came to a head early last month when shot were fired at a Hollywood dressing room where him and Nicki Minaj were filming a music video. Many also suspect his involvement in an incident last June where Chief Keef was shot at while entering a hotel in NYC.

There are rumors that he may have been set up by some old friends who tipped off the police to his location.

Earlier this year, he was also wrapped up in a child sex case after a social media post of him with an underaged girl conducting sexual acts went viral. He’s now being resentenced for this charge on top of his racketeering charge.

His sentencing is set for September 4, 2019.
