New York rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine is going to need the best attorney money can buy. New reports claim the hip-hop newcomer faces multiple federal charges and the possibility of spending the rest of his life in prison.

According to reports, Tek and his crew have a slew of violent acts pinned to them.

3:30 PM PT — According to the 17-page indictment, obtained by TMZ, Tekashi is facing 6 counts … the most serious of which is discharging a firearm while committing a crime. That count carries a possible life sentence, and a mandatory minimum of 25 years in prison. His ex-manager, Shottie, is facing the same 6 counts. Prosecutors say the acts of violence were intended to protect the gang’s drug biz, retaliate against rival gangs or promote Nine Trey’s rep on the streets. (TMZ)

The feds allegedly claim Tek and his affiliates’ crimes date back to 2013.

2:55 PM PT — Tekashi and his crew conspired to commit a slew of crimes, including drug deals, armed robberies and shootings … according to the federal indictment. The feds believe Tekashi himself pulled an armed robbery on April 3 along with his ex-manager, Shottie, and 2 other members of the Nine Trey Bloods. According to the docs, they robbed gang rivals at gunpoint. The indictment also mentions the April 21 shooting incident at Barclays Center in Brooklyn … and fingers Fuguan Lovick as the trigger man.

Monday night, G-Unit boss 50 Cent weighed-in on 6ix9ine’s drama.

A few hours ago, Tek’s deejay PVNCH updated fans on the situation and asked media outlets to wait for the facts.

“Yes 6ix9ine, yes Shotty, yes Crippie got arrested. We know that. Unless you’re the FBI, you don’t know why the f*ck they got arrested either. So I’m just confused how so many blogs got so much information. Let’s just ease up. I know that some of y’all n*ggas hate these n*ggas and I get it and all of that but let’s just remember they’re human. They have families and they have kids. Until you figure out the details, let’s not talk about it. I know this is a blog’s dream, 6ix9ine and Tr3ywawy’s in jail. Let’s post about it 80 million times and we [a billion] views. I know that sh*t and I get it. But let’s just be human for a moment. Most street n*ggas I know wouldn’t even wish jail on their worst enemy. Let’s just remember that. And when it comes to this firing sh*t, yes it did happen – did I get fired? No I did not. A rapper and a deejay figured out if we stay quiet, we gonna troll ’em. The album’s coming out. Let’s just keep that quiet for a moment and watch it all unfold. That’s number one. Number two, for the people that actually think that somehow the firing and the investigation with the jail, all this is connected. Y’all are bugged the f*ck out. Y’all n*ggas been working for the FBI way too long. Y’all n*ggas connections getting way too spicy. Shut the f*ck up. Y’all don’t know what the f*ck is going on. Just pray for these n*ggas that they come out of jail just for their families’ sake. At the end of the day, shut the f*ck up until you learn something.”

Tek’s arrest has sparked mixed reactions from his “Get The Strap” collaborator Casanova 2x and vixen Blac Chyna.
