On Monday, June 03, Kintea McKenzie, a.k.a. Kooda B, confessed to organising the hit on Keef outside a hotel in Times Square, New York on 2 June, 2018. The bullet missed its intended target and struck the hotel signage.
McKenzie revealed he had accepted money to take care of the job from Tekashi, who had been engaged in a war of words with Keef, a rival gang member, online.
The guilty plea was part of a deal with prosecutors, which is likely to land the 21 year old a sentence of around four to five years for assault with a dangerous weapon in aid of racketeering.
Meanwhile, Tekashi, real name Daniel Hernandez, is also facing a spell behind bars after pleading guilty to nine federal counts, including conspiracy to murder and racketeering.
The 23-year-old "FEFE" star, who was arrested in the Big Apple in November (18), also agreed to cooperate with authorities after officials linked him to the Nine Trey Gangster Bloods gang, and he is now expected to testify against other members of the group when their cases go to trial in the coming months.
