Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine has been locked up in the federal penitentiary since November 18th and according to TMZ, it doesn’t look like the kid is getting out any time soon.
Tekashi, who’s real name is Daniel Hernandez, appeared in court Monday where he entered a not guilty plea in his federal racketeering case.
From there the judge has scheduled Hernandez’s next court date for September 4, 2019. The “Gummo” rapper will be on lockdown for almost a year before his case is brought to trial.
The rapper who boastfully told people to “test his gangster” and said “no one could touch him” has found himself in a situation that he will be so lucky if he makes it out of unscathed. He is facing 32 years to life in prison for being an accomplice in a slew of organized criminal activity such as: fentanyl distribution, shootings, robberies, and other violent gang antics.
At only 22 years old, this looks like it could very well be the beginning of the end of the rapper’s short-lived career. He was catapulted into fame in 2017 when his song GUMMO charted on the Billboard Hot 100. Hernandez couldn’t resist the urge to get online and brag, brandish firearms, flash absurd amounts of cash, troll, bully harass, and diss some of the most popular and influential people in the hip hop industry, and ultimately implicate himself in a federal case.
