Last month, a video of 6ix9ine possibly discussing a $30,000 hit on Chief Keef's cousin Tadoe surfaced online, with the controversial Bronx rapper exclaiming, "I got a 30 pack on him right now." The video was reportedly filmed in May, and the following month saw Keef and Tadoe shot at outside the W Hotel in New York. At the start of December, police told TMZ that they think the video might have implicated the rainbow-haired rapper in the shooting, and now TMZ reports that federal prosecutors are reviewing the footage.
Law enforcement sources close to the case told TMZ that the feds are looking through all the evidence right now to see if it could lead to more charges for the rapper, who is already facing racketeering and firearm charges. The video in which 6ix9ine says he's got a "30 pack" on Tadoe, who he was talking to over the phone in the clip, is reportedly a key piece of evidence in the ongoing investigation.
When reached out to, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York reportedly declined to comment on the matter. "This is no coincidence," one law enforcement source close to the situation previously told TMZ of the video. "We believe the video is directly related to the crime. We believe Tekashi 6ix9ine ordered the hit on Tadoe—who we now believe is the intended target."
6ix9ine previously denied having any involvement in the shooting, explaining that he was a fan of Chief Keef.
