Kifano “Tr3yway Shotti” Jordan, the ex-manager of rapper 6ix9ine has just been sentenced to 15 years in prison.
Jordan, an alleged member of the infamous Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, shot to fame as the flamboyant manager of the troubled rapper. His legal problems increased as his fame grew. Jordan, a Brooklyn native, was on the run from a May 2016 case in New Jersey, in which he was pulled over and subsequently ran from the cops. He was eventually caught with heroin,” an unknown white powder, drug paraphernalia and a machete.”
When he failed to appear in court for that case in September of 2016, a warrant was issued for his arrest, and Jordan remained “on the run” for two years.
According to Complex, everything finally came to a head in the fall of 2018 when Jordan was involved in a fight with the security team of 6ix9ine’s label head Elliot Grainge (he ultimately pleaded guilty to second-degree assault); was fired and insulted by 6ix9ine during a radio interview; and then was arrested in a federal racketeering case.
Last March, he pleaded guilty to fire arms offenses relating to two different incidents, including an armed robbery of Scumlord D!zzy, who was once 6ix9ine’s mentor turned rival. The robbery was famously caught on tape by both building surveillance and 6ix9ine, who filmed the violent robbery from the backseat of a waiting car. He received a sentence of five years for that count as he could be seen on video brandishing a gun.
According to the court documents, “[T]he defendant [Shotti] was with Hernandez [6ix9ine] a cooperating witness and another individual in Brooklyn. As they were leaving a restaurant, an individual shouted a derogatory remark at Hernandez. The defendant confronted the individuals. The defendant, Hernandez, and the others got into their car and drove away. The individual who shouted the derogatory comment, and another person followed them in another car. Eventually, the defendant got out of the car, ran towards the individuals, and fired two shots at their car.”
That event took place a few hours before another affiliate of 6ix9ine, Fuguan “Funbanger” Lovick let off a shot inside the Barclays Center at a video shoot for Brooklyn rapper Casanova to thwart an attack by Casanova’s entourage. Lovick pleaded guilty to firing that shot this past May. Jordan was sentenced to 10 years, the legal minimum, for his part in the April 21 shooting.
6ix9ine is set to testify at the upcoming trial of another former manager Anthony “Harv” Ellison, who allegedly orchestrated a kidnapping of the rapper after he was fired and replaced with Jordan as his manager.
