The charges 6ix9ine has pled guilty to include "multiple counts of racketeering, conspiracy, firearms offenses and narcotics trafficking," TMZ alleges.

6ix9ine and three associates were arrested in November on federal weapons and racketeering charges. Authorities alleged that he “participated in the operation and management of” the New York City gang Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.

"This gang, which included platinum-selling rap artist Tekashi 6ix9ine, wreaked havoc on New York City, engaging in brazen acts of violence,” U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said in a statement at the time of the arrest. 6ix9ine was alleged to have taken part in gunpoint robbery and the shooting of a bystander in Brooklyn.

On Wednesday, three 6ix9ine associates were indicted with charges in connection to the June 2018 attempted shooting of Chief Keef in Times Square.

The FADER has reached out for more information.
