6ix9ine has seen a huge rise to fame and has become one of the most controversial names in hip-hop.

According to the prosecutors, back in April, Tekashi waited in a vehicle outside an NYC office while his manager and other associates robbed some of Tekashi's rivals. They also say that, as a key member of the Nine Trey gang, he was involved in selling "highly addictive" drugs and in racketeering.

In a 2015 case in NY, 6ix9ine was sentenced to probation for his involvement in the video that was posted on social media.
