The sentence came six months after Shotti pled guilty to one count of using and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence and one count of discharging a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence. Both charges stem from two separate incidents in April 2018 that also involved 6ix9ine.
Tekashi and Shotti were both arrested by the feds on racketeering charges back in November. They were accused of pulling off an armed robbery and robbing the "FEFE" rapper's rivals at gunpoint. Shotti was additionally accused of firing two shots at one of Tekashi's rivals.
As fans know, 6ix9ine is currently being held in federal jail without bail. In January, he entered a guilty plea for nine federal charges against him, including multiple counts of racketeering, conspiracy, firearms offenses, and narcotics trafficking. While it's unclear what sentence he'll have after coping guilty pleas — he was previously facing 32 years to life after being charged with six federal crimes (more charges were added while he was behind bars)— he will be sentenced on January 23, 2020.
He is reportedly set to take the stand on Monday (September 9) to testify in the trial of two Nine Trey Gangsta Blood affiliates — Anthony "Harv" Ellison and Aljermiah "Nuke" Mack — in regards to their connection to various gang activities. 6ix9ine, who is listed a cooperating witness for the Feds, is reportedly expected to speak about his alleged kidnapping last year.
Harv is accused of kidnapping and robbing 6ix9ine in July 2018. However, he claims the abduction was fake and was merely album promotion for the then up-and-coming rapper.
