It is what it is.

Daniel Hernandez also known as Tekashi 69 appeared in federal court today in Manhatten. The NY Times reports that he was wearing a navy blue prison jumpsuit as he prepared to be a government witness. 

Tekashi told the courtroom about his involvement with the gang. According to the article the Brooklyn rapper said, “We participated in a lot of crimes,” he testified. “Robberies, assaults, drugs.”

He also suggested to the court that his behavior prior to being locked up was just a stunt to create his public image. 

“That’s what people liked,” he said on Tuesday. “It was just a formula, a blueprint that I found that worked.”

Back in February, Tekahsi pled guilty to racketeering and gang-related charges. 24 hours after being arrested and charged “he cut a deal with federal prosecutors to flip on his crew.”

Tekashi’s former manager “Shottie”, was sentenced to 15 years. Tekashi will most likely spare himself a long prison sentence after cooperating with the feds.
