6ix9ine will be sentenced this year after pleading guilty in February to multiple federal crimes including racketeering, Complex reports. Judge Paul Engelmayer reportedly agreed to move the rapper's sentencing date up to December 18, 2019 at 10 a.m. EST after a request was filed by 6ix9ine's legal team.
6ix9ine, born Daniel Hernandez, faces up to 47 years in prison. However, he may receive less time after taking the stand against Anthony “Harv” Ellison and Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack, two of 6ix9ine's former associates in the Nine Trey Bloods gang. Both men were convicted of racketeering, and Ellison was convicted of kidnapping 6ix9ine in a July 2018 incident which 6ix9ine described in court.
If 6ix9ine avoids jail, it's rumored that he's considering a return to music. A documentary based on his legal issues is currently in the works, produced by 50 Cent. Read The FADER's timeline of 6ix9ine's legal issues here.
