Tekashi 6ix9ine Update: Feds Reviewing Video of Rapper Possibly Implicating Himself in Chief Keef Shooting

A video of Tekashi 6ix9ine possibly discussing a bounty on Chief Keef's cousin may be used against him. Federal prosecutors are now reviewing the footage in attempts to connect Tekashi 6ix9ine to the June shooting, in which Keef and his cousin, Tadoe, were targeted, according to a TMZ report on Wednesday.

The video, which was reportedly recorded in May, depicts Tekashi 6ix9ine, stating, "I got a 30 pack on him right now."

Authorities believe the "30 pack" Tekashi 6ix9ine spoke about in the video was referring to a $30,000 hit the rainbow-haired rapper put out on Tadoe, which would have implicated him in a shooting that took place barely a month after the video was tapped.

Two unidentified males opened fire outside of a W Hotel in New York City in June. Keef and Tadoe were standing outside of the hotel when the gunshots rang, and authorities said they were the targets of the shooting. Although New York law enforcement claimed to have two persons of interests—one who is a "known associate" of Tekashi 6ix9ine—suspects have not been revealed.

Prosecutors told TMZ on Wednesday they were reviewing all of the evidence to see if anything could lead to further charges in Tekashi 6ix9ine's current federal case.

The Dummy Boy rapper, whose legal name is Daniel Hernandez, was arrested following a federal indictment in November. He was charged with racketeering conspiracy, along with six other men allegedly affiliated with the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, a gang the indictment cited for operating as a criminal enterprise.

In addition to racketeering and firearms offenses, the indictment cited Tekashi 6ix9ine for engaging in crimes such as drug trafficking, armed robbery and murder for the benefit of the gang. There were 17 counts in total included in the indictment, six of which Tekashi 6ix9ine was charged with.

The "FEFE" rapper is facing a minimum sentence of 32 years behind bars and a maximum of life.

His trial is set to begin in September 2019. He maintains his innocence.
