The New York Police Department and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York reported Monday morning that troubled rapper, Tekashi6ix9ine (Daniel Hernandez) was taken into federal custody overnight. He was hit with a slew of charges including illegal firearm possession and racketeering.
The 22 year old’s arraignment is scheduled for later Monday afternoon.
The “Gummo” rapper was arrested alongside his friends, “Ish”, “Shotti”, and and “Crippy.” … Just let that sink in.
This incident comes less than a week after 6ix9ine was given a plea deal on Wednesday in an alleged assault case involving a New York Police Department officer.
On Sunday before he was detained, he posted a track list on Instagram for his album called “Dummy Boy”, scheduled to drop on November 23.
However all this fed talk is scaring his clientele. Inquiring minds would like to know, in the event that Tekashi6ix9ine is not released from federal custody Monday, will his album still be released?
On the other hand some are skeptical. Some fans assume this is yet another publicity stunt to boost album sales.
