The rapper known as Tekashi 6ix9ine was in federal custody Monday awaiting a Manhattan court appearance.

Tekashi 6ix9ine, the NY enfant-terrible rap star, has been arrested on charges of racketeering and firearms.

Hernandez was arrested twice in May 2018, notes Rolling Stone, once for allegedly attacking a 16-year-old in Texas and again after police said he was caught driving with a suspended license ― and then assaulted the arresting officer.

6ix9ine's associates, ex-manager Kifano Jordan ("Shotti"), Jensel Butler ("Ish"), and Faheem Walter ("Crippy") were also taken into custody. The arrest was reportedly a joint effort from ATF, the NYPD, and the Department Of Homeland Security, and all four men were charged with racketeering and firearms. His album Day69: Graduation Day was among the top records on iTunes following its February release.

The 22-year-old recently pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct in Brooklyn Criminal Court in connection with a May traffic stop.

'I fired everybody on my team, ' the Gummo artist said in the clip, imploring his fans that he was not going to be performing live in the near future, even in cases where he might be advertised.
