The rainbow haired rapper copped a secret plea deal — in which he admitted to hiring someone to shoot rival rapper Chief Keef and also to peddling a kilo of heroin — and is now cooperating with the feds, newly unsealed court documents reveal. He took the plea deal Jan. 23 for his involvement with a violent street crew called the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, but the agreement was sealed so that prosecutors would have enough time to charge and arrest more of the gang members, according to a transcript of last week’s proceeding in Manhattan federal court.
Tekashi, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez — said during the plea that he joined the gang in 2017 and admitted to hiring a hit on Chief Keef.
“On or about June 2, 2018, in furtherance of Nine Trey, of the Nine Trey enterprise, I paid a person to shoot at a rival member of Nine Trey to scare him. The shooting took place in Manhattan,” he told a judge.
“I did this to maintain or increase my own standing in Nine Trey. In furtherance of this shooting, I knew that a member of Nine Trey discharged a gun,” Tekashi added.
He also admitted that, “On or about March 20, 2018, I helped members of Nine Trey attempt to kill a rival gang member.”
