While some expected him to be released this week, 6ix9ine has officially been sentenced to two years in prison, with five years of supervised release. The 23-year-old rapper appeared in Manhattan’s Thurgood Marshall United States Courthouse earlier today, December 18, to hear the sentencing stemming from a federal racketeering case.

Matthew Russell Lee of Inner City Press reports that 6ix9ine has also been given 300 hours of community service, and he will have to pay a fine of $35,000 as well. To date, 6ix9ine has served 13 months of his 24-month sentence, meaning he will likely be released in 2020.

6ix9ine’s counsel propositioned for a more lenient sentence due to the rapper’s assistance in the conviction of the Nine Trey Gangsta Blood members, a gang he was once a part of. It’s also been reported that 6ix9ine himself wrote the judge a letter requesting leniency. He began giving the authorities intel on the Nine Trey gang in 2018 after finding out he could be facing a minimum of 47 years in prison.
