According to reports, the “Tati” rapper and two former associates were arrested on racketeering and firearms charges. Tekashi, his ex-manager Shottie, and Faheem Walter were all detained last night in NYC.
Apparently, the investigation and subsequent arrests were a joint effort by ATF, NYPD and Homeland Security.
This comes just a week after the rapper, real name Daniel Hernandez, fired Shottie and his entire team. He also canceled his coming US tour — he was slated to perform in Florida, Texas, and New York.
These new charges are especially serious for the 22-year-old because as OK! readers know, last month he was sentenced to probation in his “use of a child in a sexual performance” case.
The judge had warned him to stay out of trouble or he’d be heading directly to prison.
Do you think Tekashi is going to do real prison time? Let us know in the comments.
