AceShowbiz - Rapper Tekashi69 (6ix9ine) has pleaded guilty to nine criminal charges.
The "FEFE" star has been locked up in New York since November (18), when he was arrested and charged with an array of counts, including conspiracy to murder and racketeering after prosecutors linked him to the Nine Trey Gangster Bloods gang.
Tekashi, real name Daniel Hernandez, previously pleaded not guilty to the charges, and his lawyers were trying to win him bail after a previous offer was rejected over concerns that he was a flight risk and a threat to society.
However, according to TMZ, he has since changed his plea to guilty.
The hearing was held in January, but the federal documents were only unsealed on Friday, February 01, reportedly revealing that Tekashi69 had admitted to hiring someone to shoot at rap rival Chief Keef last summer (18).
Keef, real name Keith Cozart, was allegedly confronted by two hired gunmen outside the W Hotel in Times Square, New York, where he had been staying, when one of the men fired a shot at him, which missed and struck hotel signage.
He blamed the incident on Tekashi69, and now the incarcerated MC has apparently confessed his involvement.
"I paid a person to shoot at a rival member of Nine Trey to scare him," the rapper said during his plea hearing last week, ends January 25. "The shooting took place in Manhattan. I did this to maintain or increase my own standing in Nine Trey."
The 22-year-old was previously facing life imprisonment, with a minimum of 32 years behind bars, but it is unclear how the change in plea will affect his punishment.
