6ix9ine’s Guilty Plea Has Been Made Public
After having it revealed that Daniel “6ix9ine” Hernandez would be a cooperating witness and pleaded guilty to nine counts in his federal racketeering case, the transcript of his guilty plea has been made public. Complex has obtained the plea and it specifically lays out what the rapper has admitted to doing, while revealing new information as well.
6ix9ine says he “met and joined the Nine Trey Blood Gang” in the fall of 2017, which is right around the time of the filming of the video for his breakout hit ‘Gummo.’
Complex quotes 6ix9ine saying “As a member of Nine Trey, the enterprise engaged in such activities including shooting at people, robbing people, and at times drug trafficking.”
He also admits to being involved in three different violent incidents in 2018:
- Attempted murder on March 20th
- Robbery on April 3rd
- Shooting on June 2nd
Although there are no identifying details given in the plea, the shooting on June 2nd lines up with the attempted shooting at Chief Keef. Relating to that incident, 6ix9ine says he “paid a person to shoot at a rival member of Nine Trey to scare him.” Complex claims that other documents make it clear that the shooter was Kintea “Kooda B” McKenzie and that 6ix9ine offered him $20,000 (though the fee was later cut in half).
6ix9ine is also quoted as saying “I and others agreed to sell one kilogram of heroin” in The Brooklyn neighborhood of Bushwick.
It is also noted that part of plea includes a segment where Judge Paul A. Englemayer asks 6ix9ine if he has “ever been treated or hospitalized for any mental illness.” The rapper claims that around 2011 or 2012, he suffered depression and posttraumatic stress after his stepfather was murdered. 6ix9ine is quoted, “I started becoming just rebelling and not showering, like depression stuff.” As a result of this, he was prescribed Zoloft and “other medication,” but he never took it. He says, “My mom used, like, Mexican remedies,” making the symptoms go away.
6ix9ine will be sentenced one year to the day after his plea, on January 23, 2020. He is facing a minimum sentence of 47 years although, the judge makes it clear that if he “successfully cooperates” with the government, he may receive a lesser sentence.
The remaining co-defendants in the case will begin trial on September 4th.
