After joining the Bloods and getting caught up in a crime spree which involved several shootings and assaults around New York City, (which he claims was “in an attempt to promote a gangster persona which would help him sell his music and advance his career”) the snitch bitch rapper had pleaded guilty to racketeering, firearms and drug trafficking charges.
Judge Paul Engelmayer said that Tekashi 6ix9ine was a “central figure in a vicious and brutal gang” whom he said caused mayhem around the city and used the gang as his “personal hit squad.”
However, Engelmayer balanced those crimes with the rapper’s snitching extensive cooperation with government investigators. Prosecutors had requested that he receive a reduced sentence because of his “extraordinary” and “substantial” cooperation.
He was also sentenced to five years  of supervised release and 300 hours of community service. However, since he has already served about 13 months behind bars, he is due to be released in late 2020.
