Several of Tekashi 6ix9ine‘s former entourage members are facing fresh federal indictments, including the one who allegedly kidnapped and pistol-whipped the hip-hop star after he showed disrespect to the gang.
According to the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, three additional members of the Nine Trey Gangsta bloods were indicted for their participation in the violent street gang.
Harv, Drama and Kooda B have all been charged with racketeering and firearms offenses, and added on to the original indictment, that also includes Tekashi’s former manager, Shotti.
Kooda B was pinned with being involved in the shooting that took place on June 2, 2018 at the W Hotel in Times Square when associates of Tekashi opened fire at Chief Keef’s entourage, as the two hip-hop stars were publicly beefing.
Drama was indicted for allegedly taking part in another targeting shooting of Chief Keef on July 16, 2018, when an innocent bystander was hit by a bullet. Lastly, Harv was indicted with his alleged connection in “kidnapping and assaulting another member of Nine Trey” in Brooklyn on July 22, 2018.
Tekashi was returning to his Brooklyn home in the early hours of July 22 when he claims he was apprehended, pistol-whipped and forced into a car. He was driven home and forced to hand over jewelry and cash before being let go. Tekashi had initially reported the incident to police, but then became uncooperative.
As we reported, the kidnapping wasn’t the only attempt on Tekashi’s life, as he narrowly escaped a drive-by shooting in Beverly Hills last year while filming a music video with Kanye West.
Tekashi, who is not mentioned in the new indictment, remains in jail on no bail while awaiting his September trial. Since his arrest, it has become clear that the members of Nine Trey thought the rapper had disrespected the gang, and wanted him gone.
The U.S. Attorney says Drama was arrested on Wednesday, Harv was already in custody on federal charges and Kooda B is still at large. All three men face life in prison.
The rainbow-haired rapper, meanwhile, is now denying he was ever officially affiliated with any violent street gangs, and claims his image was purely for entertainment.
