According to TMZ, Tekashi, who has been in prison since was he arrested November 18, appeared in court January 23 and entered a guilty plea to multiple sickening charges. Prosecutors said the gang engaged in murder, robbery and drug trafficking in Manhattan, the Bronx and Brooklyn for at least the past six years according to CBS News.

He pleaded guilty to at least nine counts including "multiple counts of racketeering, conspiracy, firearms offenses, and narcotics trafficking".

According to The Washington Post, Hernandez admitted to criminal acts related to his gang affiliation, including robbery, selling a kilogram of heroin near his home, and ordering the shooting of a rival gang member.

The rapper admitted at a court hearing last week to being a member of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, a group the U.S. Attorney's Office has called a "criminal organization" in court documents obtained by E!

Hernandez said he had joined the gang in 2017. However, TMZ noted that because Tekashi is cooperating with authorities he will likely receive a more lenient sentence.

Tekashi, real name Daniel Hernandez, was arrested in NY at the end of a year ago, alongside his ex-manager, and two former associates, who are accused of being part of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang.

With his deal, 6ix9ine can gain leniency at sentencing from an otherwise mandatory minimum 47 years in prison if he admits to all crimes and testifies truthfully. The charges brought against him in November directly violated a probation he was assigned after disorderly conduct charges surrounding an underage girl in a sexual video taken before the rapper was famous.

Days after reportedly assisting federal investigators in identifying those involved in the Chief Keef shooting, TMZ reveals Tekashi 6ix9ine has pled guilty to nine counts.

Papers reportedly state Tekashi waited in a auto outside an office building while his associates robbed some of the rapper's rivals, in April. His sentencing hearing was scheduled for January 24, 2020.

His lawyers did not publicly comment on his plea deal, but attorney Dawn Florio said efforts were underway to "protect him and his family and his loved ones, for their safety", The Times reported.
