Back in November, Tekashi69 was indicted on six federal charges, including racketeering, in connection to his longtime affiliation with the Nine Trey gang. Now, just two months later, three known associates of the Brooklyn-bred rapper have been hit with federal indictments of their own, and as it turns out, law enforcement sources say the rapper helped point them out.
According to TMZ, Kintea McKenzie, Anthony Ellison and Demard Butler have all been indicted in connection to the same incidents the rapper was charged for. However, sources tell the publication, McKenzie, whose known on the streets as Kooda B, was indicted after 6ix9ine sat down with investigators to identify McKenzie as the shooter in the Time Square Chief Keef incident.
Sources say McKenzie was allegedly compensated for the shooting, which, according to TMZ, occurred sometime after the phone conversation between Tekashi and Keef’s cousin, in which he appeared to offer a payout for a hit. However, the video is still under investigation.
In the meantime, officials have yet to arrest McKenzie. However, Ellison is already behind bars for the alleged kidnapping and assault of the rainbow-haired rapper, and Butler was arrested on Wednesday.
