69, born Daniel Hernandez in New York City, New York, was arrested Sunday night by ATF agents based on an alleged conspiracy to sell drugs - heroin, fentanyl, MDMA and marijuana - commit armed robberies, and aforementioned shootings, at least one of which took place at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

According to papers filed in court, Tekashi, Shottie (his ex-manager), Crippy, Ish and others are accused of being part of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang which "committed and agreed, attempted, and threatened to commit acts of violence to protect and expand their narcotics business".

"The defendant is quite violent", the prosecutor said of a man whose debut album, Day 69, was among the most downloaded records on iTunes.

The rapper known as Tekashi 6ix9ine, who is scheduled to perform in Tallahassee next week at The Pavilion at the Centre of Tallahassee, is stirring controversy around the city because of his past.

Tekashi 6ix9ine just can't keep himself out of trouble, even though he's been trying.

6ix9ine was denied bail Monday. Two of the charges Hernandez faces have a maximum penalty of life in prison.

6ix9ine is not new to controversy in the hip-hop world. They also say that, as a key member of the Nine Trey gang, he was involved in selling "highly addictive" drugs and in racketeering.

Nine Trey is said to be a criminal enterprise involved in committing numerous acts of violence, including shootings, robberies, and assaults in and around Manhattan and Brooklyn. On April 3, Tekashi, Jordan, Butler, and Walter robbed gang rivals at gunpoint, according to the indictment charges.

In a 2015 case in NY, 6ix9ine was sentenced to probation for his involvement in the video that was posted on social media.
