Tekashi69 has reached a plea deal with the Feds, apart of which he has plead guilty to 9 counts including racketeering, conspiracy, firearms offenses and narcotic trafficking. Tekashi was indicted back in November of charges of racketeering, facing life in prison. It is unknown what his sentencing will be now, but based off court docs, it could be a minimum of 47 years.

According to the Feds, Tekashi had his hands in heroin, fentanyl, ecstasy, amphetamines and marijuana, while conspiring in multiple acts of murder, robbery and extortion. Some may remember when Tekashi had a $30,000 bounty out on Chief Keef’s cousin. He was also involved with the shooting of a rival gang at a hotel in Times Square.

Based off the court documents received by TMZ, Tekashi shares about his life of crime and snitches on a few people, including the alleged trigger man in the Keef shooting, which turned out to be a complete failed mission. Telling the courts, “I paid a person to shoot at a rival member of Nine Trey to scare him. The shooting took place in Manhattan. I did this to maintain or increase my own standing in Nine Trey.”

He tells that he joined the Nine Trey Bloods in the fall of 2017 and in March 20, 2018, he admits to helping members of the gang attempt to kill a rival to “increase my own standing in Nine Trey.” Then on April 3, he says he, and other members, robbed a rival at gunpoint.

Tekashi also admitted to selling a kilo of heroin in 2017, then offer an apology for all his crimes, saying, “I apologize to the Court, to anyone who was hurt, to my family, friends and fans for what I have done and who I have let down.”

Tekashi is set to be sentenced a year from now, on January 24, 2020.
