Tekashi 6ix9ine Placed in General Population of Brutal Brooklyn Prison

U.S. rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine is facing 32 years to life in prison over racketeering and firearms charges. TMZ reports that agents from the ATF arrested the hip-hop star in New York City alongside his former manager Shottie and two members of the Nine Trey faction of the United Bloods gang.

Among those charged were Faheem Walter (aka Crippy), Jamel Jones (aka Mel Murda), Jensel Butler (aka Ish) and Fuguan Lovick (aka Fu Banga).

Rap star Tekashi 6ix9ine was officially indicted by a grand jury for a litany of charges, including an attempted murder.

The rapper has publicly identified himself as a member of a violent NY gang, 9 Trey Bloods, which was mentioned throughout the indictment.

Now Tekashi is facing a minimum of 32 years in prison if he gets convicted.

Prosecutors say the violence aimed to defend the gang's drug business and/or retaliate against or intimidate other rival sets.

Nine Trey is said to be a criminal enterprise involved in committing numerous acts of violence, including shootings, robberies, and assaults in and around Manhattan and Brooklyn.

'Members and associates of Nine Trey committed, conspired, attempted, and threatened to commit acts of violence, including acts involving murder, robbery, and extortion against rival gang members and other individuals adverse to the Enterprise'.

He was sentenced to four years of probation, and also complete 1000 hours of community service as well as avoid any involvement with gangs or any further arrests - which doesn't bode well for his current situation. According to Rolling Stone, the rapper reportedly offered to surrender over $1 million to be bailed out, but that has been denied. The arrests are said to have been a "joint effort by ATF, NYPD and Homeland Security".

This request was denied, although an appeal will be filed on Tuesday during a bail hearing. A law enforcement source tells E!

The prosecutor said he was also part of a video boasting about shots recently fired by a co-defendant in Brooklyn's Barclays Center.
