New York rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine isn’t finding too many reasons to soak in the holiday cheer this Christmas season. New reports claim the feds are now looking into his ties to last summer’s near-death Chief Keef shooting in the Big Apple.
According to reports, federal prosecutors are looking for reasons to throw more charges at Tek.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … the shooting case — which has gone unsolved so far with the NYPD — is now under review with federal prosecutors, who are combing over the evidence to see if it might lead to any additional charges. We’re told the video TMZ posted of Tekashi saying he’s got a “30 pack” on Tadoe, with whom he’d just gotten off the phone, is a key piece of evidence the feds are looking at. And, remember, one of the guys who police say tailed Chief Keef prior to the shooting is a “known associate” with direct ties to Tekashi. (TMZ)
Back in September, 6ix9ine trolled Chief Keef following a home burglary.

A few months ago, Chief addressed nearly having his life taken away in New York and blamed it on his 6ix9ine feud.
“Yeah, I’m good,” the 22-year-old said by phone after rushing back home to Los Angeles. Keef, 22, whose given name is Keith Farrelle Cozart, told The Post he’s been feuding with 22-year-old Bushwick-born rival Tekashi 6ix9ine, whose given name is Daniel Hernandez. “It’s just beef between me and the rapper 6ix9ine,” the Chicago-born rapper claimed.

Keef also spoke up on what might have ultimately led up to the confrontation.
Keef told The Post that he’d been confronted by two would-be gunmen before dawn Saturday, as he went upstairs to his room at the W Hotel on Broadway near west 47th Street. “I was just scared a little bit and I didn’t know what to do,” Keef told The Post. “I went upstairs for a couple hours to cool off and I came back [outside]. I didn’t know they were waiting for me.” (Page Six)
