Feds Find Assault Rifle In 6ix9ine's Brooklyn Apartment As Legal Issues Mount

As if it couldn't get any worse, and it probably will, there is more bad news for Tekashi 6ix9ine.

(AllHipHop News) Tekashi 6ix9ine's legal issues continue to mount after another day in court today (November 20).

The rapper and three other men appeared in court earlier today, where each one of them was denied bail.

6ix9ine, born Daniel Hernandez, Faheem "Crippy" Walter, Kifano "Shotti" Jordan, Jensel "Ish" Butler were among the men arrested and charged with racketeering, firearm violations and dealing heroin, MDMA and other hard drugs throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens.

Part of the reason why 6ix9ine was denied bail is because of the amount of evidence federal investigators presented against the rap star.

Prosecutors presented pictures of the rapper and his crew engaged in a shooting inside of the Barclay's Center in April, as well as footage of a robbery in mid-town Manhattan, which they say 6ix9ine ordered.

They also had images of a July 16 shooting where a bystander was struck in the foot.

But the biggest nail in the coffin for the rapper was a loaded AR-15 style rifle that was recovered in the rapper's Brooklyn apartment.

Just possessing the gun is a violation of the plea agreement Tekashi 6ix9ine made after he was charged with sex crimes against a minor, for featuring a naked underaged girl in one of his videos back in 2015.

As far as his freedom, it looks like Tekashi and the other defendants will remain locked up at Brooklyn's MDC prison, until they are arraigned on November 26.

"The evidence of Hernandez's participation in the armed robbery alleged to have occurred on April 3, 2018, is compelling and the recovery of an AR-15 firearm from Hernandez‘s residence is further evidence of dangerousness," a judge ruled.

The feds fear if 6ix9ine is freed, he would still be able to "direct acts of violence by telephone, and given the ubiquitousness of cell phones, there is no way to limit Hernandez's access to telephonic communications."
