In November of 2018, Tekashi 6ix9ine and his manager Kifano ‘Shotti’ Jordan were taken in on federal racketeering charges. 6ix9ine was also accused of murder and drug charges.
Everything came crashing down for 6ix9ine after a huge 2018 where he had a hot single in “GUMMO.” His debut album “Dummy Boy” also peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album was released after his arrest.
6ix9ine’s been snitching on everyone in court and now, Shotti is the latest affiliate to go down. According to Complex, He just got a 15-year sentence at the Thurgood Marshall Courthouse in Manhattan court today. This spring, he pleaded guilty to two federal weapons counts. The Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s Office says that Shotti admitted to “using and possessing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence” and “discharging a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence.”
The first count was for using and possessing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence. This was in regards to the was for armed robbery in the lobby of a G-Unit office building on April 3, 2018. Rapper Scumlord D!zzy and a Rap-A-Lot affiliated rapper named Junya Boy were the victims as Shotti was holding a pistol throughout the incident. The minimum amount of years for this incident was five years, which he received.
The second is for discharging a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence. This happened in Brooklyn on April 21, 2018. This was hours before a 6ix9ine associate fired shots inside the Barclay’s Center during the Adrien Broner-Jessie Vargas fight. The max for this incident was 10 years.
Shotti ruined his own chance at huge success as well. In addition to 6ix9ine, he had signed Fetty Wap and Alexis Skyy. After 6ix9ine fired him as his manager this spring, the rapper continued to blast Shotti on The Breakfast Club. The two could’ve had a huge run together but now, that era is officially over.
