During a court appearance Monday, Kifano "Shotti" Jordan disclosed he had about $60,000 sitting in his checking account; however, it seems law enforcement isn't buying that claim. A source told the outlet that authorities believe "Shotti"—who managed 6ix9ine up until last week—swindled the rapper out of $2.2 million in tour money.
The insider said 6ix9ine became aware of the stunt after a tour promoter directly contacted him. It was at that time when the rapper was informed he should've received $2.5 million for the deal, which was nowhere near the amount Shotti had reportedly paid. The source claims 6ix9ine was only given $300,000 in tour money, and that his ex-manager pocketed the rest.
Last Thursday, the "FEFE" artist went to Instagram to announce he had terminated his entire team. He explained his decision during an appearance on The Breakfast Club, claiming MTA Booking stole a ton of cash from him—a claim that the company has denied.
Shortly after he fired his team members, 6ix9ine was arrested on racketeering and firearm charges. His associates Jamel "Mel Murda" Jones, Jensel "Ish" Butler, Fuguan "Fu Banga" Lovick, Faheem "Crippy" Walter, and Shotti were named as co-defendants. The men are suspected members of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods street gang. They each remain in custody and are facing a slew of felony charges, including conspiracy to commit murder and drug distribution.
"I believe that the charges against him is an over-charge by the U.S. Attorney's Office and that when the facts come out I am confident that the charges will be dismissed as it relates to Daniel Hernandez Tekashi 6ix9ine," his attorney Lance Lazzaro told XXL magazine.
6ix9ine faces 32 years to life in prison if he's found guilty of his charges.
