The FBI is using Tekashi 6ix9ine's own livestream videos - as evidence to take him down.
The feds said Tekashi, 22, was involved in a gang conspiracy with his ex-manager, Kifano (Shotti) Jordan, Jensel (Ish) Butler, Faheem (Crippy) Walter, Fuguan (Fu Banga) Lovick and Jamel (Mel Murda) Jones. They all were taken into custody without bail with the exception of Lovick, who was already in custody.
According to the federal indictment - on April 3, Tekashi, Jordan, Butler and Walter robbed rivals at gunpoint in the lobby of a building at 40th St. and 8th Ave., prosecutors said. Tekashi was allegedly sitting in an SUV filming the robbery.
In September, the feds raided an apartment on Kingston Ave. in Brooklyn belonging to the rapper and recovered a backpack swiped in the gunpoint robbery, as well as an AR-15 rifle, Longyear said.
The feds are using that video evidence, along with the bag as the key evidence to the charges against Tekashi.
Here is the video:
That's not all though, according to Page Six, Federal prosecutors have released photos of inked-up rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine that they claim prove he is a dangerous gangbanger and should remain in prison until trial.
The pictures, which were presented to a Manhattan federal magistrate judge Monday but released Tuesday, include photos of an AK-15 assault rifle that federal agents discovered at his Brooklyn home in September, as well as images from video surveillance that prosecutors say put the rapper, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, at the scene of multiple crimes.
Images from surveillance video attached to the Nov. 19 letter include shots of Hernandez near a gun blast that the feds say tie him to an April 21, 2018, shooting at the Barclays Center in downtown Brooklyn.
