Tekashi 6ix9ine is facing at least 47 years in prison after pleading guilty to nine federal counts stemming from his involvement with the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang. The controversial rapper has been reportedly cooperating with the feds, which roughly translates to snitching.
As so eloquently defined in the Urban Dictionary, a snitch is: “a guy/girl who gets arrested by the cops, and then decides to give up info that can land another person/friend in lock-up. And as a result, the snitch is let go — home free. Usually, that motherfucker gets his/her ass beat up and put into the hospital, or stabbed up or shot.”
The mother of 6ix9ine’s daughter, Sara Molina, believes his cooperation has possibly put her family in danger.
“He did what he did,” Molina told TMZ. “He made his bed and now he has to lie in it. But he didn’t think about how it was going to affect others. He’s only thinking about himself in the situation. I’m left to pick up the pieces of whatever mess he’s made, which is and has always been a thing … my job is to protect my daughter at all costs and even if that means him.”
Now, Twitter has come up a whole new name for 6ix9ine. A “Snitch9ine” hashtag started making the rounds on Friday (February 1) shortly after parts of his plea hearing transcript were released.
6ix9ine was originally facing up to life in prison prior to the most recent turn of events in his case. Even if he does receive only the minimum sentence of 47 years, he’ll be — yep! — 69 years old when he’s released.
The 22-year-old is expected to be sentenced in January 2020.
