Tekashi69 Is Facing At Least 49 Years In Prison For His Crimes But Wants The Judge To Give Him A Second Chance

Big bad gang member and former rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine sent a letter to a judge apologizing for his crimes. He was even begging for a ‘second chance’ as he faces a life sentence behind bars. The letter comes after the rapper turned snitch on his former gang and named names of people involved in the gang, including Cardi B. The internet had a field day when Tekashi 6ix9ine started to throw people under the bus to save his own skin.

The former rapper told Judge Paul Engelmayer that he was ‘becoming more and more overwhelmed’ as the date approaches. Tekashi 6ix9ine’s trial was highly publicized and was all people on social media could talk about for weeks.

The hip hop community shunned the former rapper and has mocked him for snitching on other gang members.

Tekashi 6ix9ine, who was charged along with five other ‘Nine Trey’ gangsters in November 2018, was mocked by the hip-hop community for turning ‘snitch’ and cooperating with prosecutors. He did all of this in a bid to earn himself a lighter sentence. If you didn’t catch the avalanche of memes on the issue, then you, my friend, live under a rock.

Here’s what he wrote to the judge.

In the letter obtained by TMZ, Tekashi writes: “I’m sorry to the victims who were affected by my actions, to my fans who look up to me and were misled, to my family who depends on me and to this courtroom for this mess that I contributed to. I’m truly sorry for the harm that I’ve caused. If given a second chance, I will not let this Court down and I will dedicate a portion of my life to helping others not make the same mistakes that I’ve made.”

Tekashi 6ix9ine was charged with being affiliated with the gang Nine Trey last year. 

Tekashi 6ix9ine was charged in an indictment outlining his alleged involvement in drug sales and two shootings in New York City. Facing a lot of charges, including racketeering and firearms offenses, the former rapper immediately switched sides and agreed to cooperate with prosecutors in hopes of earning himself a break at his own sentencing.

He pleaded guilty to nine charges including conspiracy, firearms offenses, and drug trafficking.

As part of his deal, he testified against two high-ranking members; Anthony ‘Harv’ Ellison and Aljermiah ‘Nuke’ Mack, who were both subsequently convicted. Over three days on the witness stand, Tekashi 6ix9ine spilled all the tea, with details, about the illegal acts he witnessed during his time with Nine Trey, a violent faction of the infamous Bloods. 

Tekashi 6ix9ine says he used Nine Trey to increase his street cred.

The rapper described how he used Nine Trey to increase his street credibility to boost his career. In exchange, Tekashi 6ix9ine was bankrolling the gang’s operations through his music earnings. 

Tekashi 6ix9ine was labeled a snitch on social media.

After rattling off the names of other stars he says were involved in the gang, including Cardi B (who denies any association with the gang) and Jim Jones, all hell broke loose on Tekashi 6ix9ine.

Maybe getting out of prison wouldn’t be the best to happen to Tekashi 6ix9ine.

His testimony was so explicit and detailed, it made everyone question how safe he would be on the outside. If the rapper managed to get out, there is a lot of concern over his safety given his willingness to roll over and cooperate with prosecutors and law enforcement.

The sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 18. 

As we mentioned earlier, he faces up to 47 years in prison but apparently believes the sentence will be reduced to a matter of months, according to the Daily Mail.

Tekashi 6ix9ine says he won’t accept witness protection and plans to hire personal security.

Whether or not he’ll be able to afford private security around the clock, is a whole different story. The musician’s net worth isn’t known. Some believe he’s worth around $10million, while others put his fortune at around $1million. Whatever the number is, no-doubt his legal bills will take a big chunk out of whatever money he has left.

The prospects of Tekashi 6ix9ine going back into music when (if) he gets out of prison are pretty bleak.   

By accusing several fellow rappers of gang involvement during the trial, Tekashi 6ix9ine became somewhat of a pariah in the music industry. A lot of fellow artists described him as a ‘hungry’ internet star who clung to fame without the talent to back it up.    

Tekashi 6ix9ine was a social media star before he became a rapper.

He was known for his rainbow-colored hair, quirky style, and tattoos way before anyone could single out a song of his. Tekashi 6ix9ine’s album Day69: Graduation Day was a top-seller in 2018 following its release. The album included a multiplatinum hit “Fefe” featuring Nicki Minaj, and “Stoopid” featuring fellow incarcerated rapper Bobby Shmurda.

They say art imitates life, but sometimes, it’s the other way around. Once in a while, the news seems like it’s simply replaying scenes from La Reina del Sur. Especially the latest update on El Chapo’s wife.

On Monday Emma Coronel Aispuro, the wife of Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, turned herself into the United States FBI on charges of international drug trafficking.

The U.S. authorities are charging Coronel with helping Guzmán smuggle drugs across the border, break out of prison, and bribe corrupt officials. According to anonymous officials, the U.S. authorities have had their eye on her for a while now.

For years, El Chapo’s wife Emma Coronel has insisted that she had nothing to do with her husband’s illegal activities. Because she always maintained her innocence, the former teen beauty-queen was able to keep a high profile since her husband was imprisoned in 2019. She was active on social media, gave interviews to news outlets, and even appeared on a reality series.

Coronel was born in San Francisco, but grew up in Mexico near El Chapo’s “territory”.

Her father was a prominent member of El Chapo’s cartel, and according to experts, she “grew up with knowledge of the narcotics trafficking industry.” She married Guzmán when she was 18-years-old. He was 50. Her and Guzmán have 9-year-old twin daughters together. As of now, the girls’ whereabouts are unknown.

According to official documents, the FBI has evidence that Coronel was a liaison between El Chapo and his sons, “Los Chapitos” when they were planning his notorious prison escape in 2015. Coronel also stands accused of acting as a messenger and negotiator for payments to corrupt authorities.

As of now, people are speculating that Coronel turned herself in in exchange for leniency.

“Her attorney at sentencing is going to argue, ‘She took it upon herself to face charges,’ she didn’t make the government go out and arrest and extradite her,” an anonymous source told Vice. “She came out of Mexico. It would have been quite a process to get her extradited.”

According to reports, Colonel faces 10 years to life in prison, and a fine of up to $10 million USD.

Lil Uzi Got A $24 Million Diamond Pierced To His Forehead And Twitter Has Thoughts

Lil Uzi Got A $24 Million Diamond Pierced To His Forehead And Twitter Has Thoughts

While us normies wait in anticipation for our country’s leaders to make up their minds about our stimulus checks, the wealthy aren’t at all bashful about flashing their wealth and riches. From spending tons of money on covid tests to shelling out money for private parties in a pandemic they’re spending it all.

Of course, we know it’s none of our business how people choose to spend their money, still, we can’t help but raise our eyebrows at the latest spending decision one rapper Lil Uzi Vert recently made.

Last week, Rapper Lil Uzi Vert unveiled a brand-new forehead piercing featuring an insane pink diamond.

When Uzi tweeted back on January 30, that he had been saving up for a natural pink stone worth a total of $24 million since 2017 we were of course surprised. At the time, Uzi told fans that he’d been saving up for a diamond that was “10 almost 11 carats.”

Last Wednesday, Uzi shared a video of the new piercing, revealing that he’d put it smack in the middle of his forehead.

“Beauty is pain,” Uzi posted about the image and fans were quick to note that the forehead piercing looked slightly off-centered.

Uzi was quick to point out that while the diamond may appear to be off-center it always looks that way for now because of swelling. “Y’all keep talking about it’s off, it still has a long bar in it so it can move ‘cause of the swelling,” he explained in a post shared to his Instagram Story. “When it goes down, it gon’ be right there.”

According to an interview with Yahoo and Luis Garcia, the vice president of the Association of Professional Piercers, Uzi did receive a pierce, contrary to the implant theory that some fans have suggested.

“It looks like he has what we would call a vertical bridge piercing, as in the bridge of the nose. That would be an actual piercing with a staple shape barbell that enters at one point, exits at another, and then the big diamond attaches to that bar on the front,” Garcia tells Yahoo Life. “It’s a piercing, while obviously not super common in typical circles, it’s fairly common in piercing circles. …Definitely not with a giant $24 million diamond on it. But it’s something that gets done.”

Garcia says that the style of piercing could cause some problems for the rapper in the future.

“With such a big piece, the weight of it, day to day life like washing your face, sleeping, rolling around, wearing a hoody, it’s just gonna be so easy to get that thing snagged. That’s really where the main concern is,” Garcia told Yahoo. “The chances of it working out are slim.”

So, why didn’t Uzi just put his diamond on a ring?

When asked why he didn’t just put the stone on a ring and call it a day, Uzi said he was “literally tryna turn into a diamond.”

Of course, fans also had jokes to make.

Welp, it’s all To Be Determined on whether or not Lil Uzi’s forehead piercing ends up sticking but here’s hoping it definitely does not get snatched!
