AceShowbiz - A gang boss associated with jailed rapper Tekashi69 a.k.a. 6ix9ine has been sentenced to serve over 11 years behind bars after pleading guilty to racketeering and narcotics charges.
Jamel Jones, who has been described as the godfather of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, is reportedly hoping for a reduced sentence after agreeing to serve as a government informant.
He was arrested while trying to sell heroin to an undercover police officer in 2018, and he was also accused of distributing powerful opioid fentanyl.
Earlier this month, fellow gang members Anthony Ellison and Aljermiah Mack were convicted of racketeering following testimony Tekashi gave against them in a bid to reduce his own jail time. Ellison was also found guilty of kidnapping the rapper.
Tekashi69 was facing up to 47 years behind bars for his gang involvement, but that sentence is expected to be drastically reduced at a hearing in December - and the rap star could be out of jail next year - thanks to his testimony.
The rapper has scored a massive new record deal from jail - sources close to the incarcerated star tell TMZ bosses at his former label have offered him a $10 million deal to release his post-prison material exclusively with them.
Reports suggest the deal will span two albums - one in English and one in Spanish.
