The 22-year-old controversial rapper, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, was arrested by federal police earlier last month (November 18) and was accused of being a part of violent gang Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods. He has since pleaded not guilty to the racketeering and firearms charges levelled against him. He could serve up to life imprisonment if found guilty.
Now, it has emerged that the NYPD are investigating Hernandez after TMZ posted a video of him Facetiming Keef’s cousin, Tadoe, in late May – repeatedly asking for his location and saying, “I got a 30 pack on him right now, Blood” (which some believe to mean he has ordered a $30,000 hit on Keef).
Chief Keef was shot at outside the W Hotel in New York’s Times Square on the morning of Saturday June 2. However, the shooter missed and Keef and his entourage were unharmed.
Meanwhile, Tekashi 6ix9ine is reportedly expected to be re-sentenced for a previous child sex offence after he filmed a 13-year-old girl engaging in a sex act in 2015.
Despite being in prison, last week saw the rapper release his new album ‘Dummy Boy‘ – which has been largely panned by fans and critics.
