Tekashi 6ix9ine receives official sentencing date after serving as a star witness during the federal racketeering case.
From his viral rise in hip-hop to the even more viral testimony, Daniel Hernandez, known as Tekashi 6ix9ine has become the new face for “snitch” in the rap world. During the 2019 BET Hip-Hop awards, his position as a witness for the prosecution was referenced several times. While Tekashi 6ix9ine may have a new label to take on, it looks as though he’ll be free to rap again sooner than though.
According to Complex, Tekashi 6ix9ine’s sentencing date has been moved from January 2020 to December 2019. Judge Paul Engelmayer agreed to a request from Tekashi 6ix9ine’s legal team, moving the sentencing to Dec. 18, 2019, at 10 a.m. ET.
The testimony of Tekashi 6ix9ine aided in guilty verdicts for Nine Trey Blood gang members. Anthony “Harv” Ellison and Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack were both found guilty of racketeering. Ellison was also found of kidnapping Hernandez amongst other charges. Complex reports both Ellison and Mack will be sentenced February 2020.
