Tekashi 6ix9ine 'ordered his goons to shoot up Chief Keef's cousin in return for $30K' days before rapper was shot at
A video shows 6ix9ine having a Facetime with Keef's cousin, Tadoe, and bragging to his crew about putting a bounty on his head
Troubles seem to be piling up for rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine, currently cooling his heels in prison over racketeering and other charges. Tekashi (Real name Daniel Harnadez) is seen in a recently surfaced video apparently calling a hit on Chief Keef's cousin a few days before shots were fired at the rapper in front of a hotel in New York.
The Brooklyn-bred rapper, who is currently in federal custody, following a joint investigation form the ATF, NYPD and Homeland Security is facing quite a few years in prison over racketeering and firearm charges.
However, his attorney Lance Lazzaro wrote in a statement on Wednesday, "An entertainer who portrays a ‘gangster image’ to promote his music does not make him a member of an enterprise.”
However in the video put out by TMZ it seems otherwise. In the video, 6ix9ine can be seen in a heated argument with Keef's cousin, Tadoe, over FaceTime. In the video, which is reported to have been recorded in May, the rapper is seen repeatedly asking for Tadoe's location, claiming that he would hunt him down; Tadoe doen't disclose his location.
The rapper continues, "When was the last time y'all did something to somebody? What was the last person you shot?"
"Matter of fact, I'mma get your address," he says.
And as he hands back his phone to one of his crew members, he brags about putting a bounty on Tadoe. "I got a 30 pack on him right now. Swear to god I got a 30 pack. Thirty thou cash right now."

Days after the video was recorded, Keef had nearly escaped gunfire outside the W Hotel in New York City. The incident took place at the time when Takashi and Keef were engaged in some heavy online exchange of insults. The rapper has denied any involvement in the shooting, and told TMZ, "We don’t play with guns. 6ix9ine is for the kids. We don’t promote any gun violence. It’s all rainbows and peace.”
Tekhashi's words seemed to have reflected in his attorney's statement about him being completely innocent, and that his gangster look was the deception.
Attorney Lazzaro stated, "Mr. Hernandez became a victim of this enterprise and later took steps by firing employees and publicly denounced this enterprise through a morning show." Following his arrest last week, the rapper had also canceled his upcoming tour and announced that he’d fired his “whole team” after claiming they had been stealing from him.
“Threats were then made against his life which resulted in this case being brought immediately,” Lazzaro’s statement concludes. Much of the charges against the rapper revolves around his involvement with the Nine Trey Bloods, an allegedly violent New York gang.

Apparently, the gang has been in the rapper's security service. He had hired them after meeting with them in 2017 at a concert, following which he had hired them for management and security. Four of these members were arrested on Sunday night and Monday morning in connection to the same racketeering charges.
