Tekashi 6ix9ine’s ex-manager Kifano “Shotti” Jordan was sentenced to 15 years in prison during a hearing at Manhattan’s Thurgood Marshall Courthouse on Friday (September 6).
Jordan was one of several alleged Nine Trey Gangsta Blood members who were arrested alongside 6ix9ine last November on federal racketeering charges.
Last March, the 37-year-old pleaded guilty to firearms offenses relating to two different violent incidents — using and possessing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence during the April 2018 armed robbery in the lobby of the G-Unit office building and discharging a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence during another 2018 incident Brooklyn.
According to Complex, court documents read, “[T]he defendant [Shotti] was with Hernandez [6ix9ine, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez], a cooperating witness, and another individual in Brooklyn. As they were leaving a restaurant, an individual shouted a derogatory remark at Hernandez.
“The defendant confronted the individuals. The defendant, Hernandez, and the others got into their car and drove away. The individual who shouted the derogatory comment and another person followed them in another car. Eventually, the defendant got out of the car, ran towards the individuals and fired two shots at their car.”
6ix9ine’s lawyer Dawn Florio told HipHopDX her client is expected to testify against Nine Trey Gangsta Blood affiliates “Harv” Ellison and Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack after jury selection is completed on September 16.
Prosecutors believe Ellison kidnapped and robbed the polarizing rapper in July 2018.
