Tekashi and his associates are in federal custody on the charges and faces a possible life sentence, with a mandatory twenty-five years minimum in jail, on the discharging a firearm alone if convicted.

As fans of the rapper may already know, Tekashi69, 22, is on probation, so his latest arrest may result in him doing some serious time behind bars.

According to TMZ, Tekashi, real name Daniel Hernandez, is now in federal custody along with his former manager Shottie.

He said they took Tekashi in after learning he was planning a trip to a CT casino, and feared an attempt on his life could put innocent people in jeopardy. There is reportedly another emergency bail hearing this morning after the first was denied. "Showing reckless indifference to others' safety, members of the gang were allegedly involved in robberies and shootings, including a shooting inside the crowded Barclay's Center, and a shooting in which an innocent bystander was hit". Two of the charges Hernandez faces have a maximum penalty of life in prison.

It was reported last week that Hernandez had fired his whole team, including Jordan (better known as Shottie). His album Day69: Graduation Day was among the top records on iTunes following its February release.

One prosecutor told a judge ex-members of Tekashi's crew "wanted to super violate him" following his appearance on the "Breakfast Club". where he accused his inner circle of turning on him.

Prosecutors said the gang carried out acts of murder, robbery, and narcotics trafficking in Manhattan, the Bronx, and Brooklyn since at least 2013. "The purposes of the Enterprise included preserving and protecting the power, territory, and profits of the Enterprise through acts involving murder... and threats of violence".

In a 2015 case in NY, 6ix9ine was sentenced to probation for his involvement in a sexually explicit video of a 13-year-old girl. AP reports the video showed the girl performing a sex act on another man while 6ix9ine "stands behind the child making a thrusting motion with his pelvis and smacking her on her buttocks", according to court documents.
