A new audio has surfaced which appears to show Tekashi 6ix9ine's manager, Shotti, threatening to shoot the rapper's baby mama and his child.

Reports have been flying around that Shotti, who has been sentenced to 15 years behind bars thanks to 6ix9ine's cooperation with the government - threatened to wipe out his entire family.

 "You can't be the King of New York if you're dead," an enraged Shotti can be heard yelling at the star.

"Sara [Molina]'s been moving around in cars. I will f*ckin', I will shoot Sara, n*gga. I'm the one who raised Harv, n*gga. We don't give a fuck about women, children, kids."

But according to DJ Akademiks, a close friend of 6ix9ine, that's not what Shotti was doing. In essence, Shotti was telling him that they had to respond to the kidnapping with violence - and serve some street justice to the ones who violated him. In the streets, they take no prisoners.
