[UPDATE: February 14, 1:30 p.m. EST]:​​Complex has obtained the full transcript of Tekashi 6ix9ine's guilty plea that has been made public, and points out some key details. 6ix9ine says that he "met and joined the Nine Trey Blood Gang" in fall 2017 which coincided with the release of his breakout single, "Gummo." 6ix9ine's video for the song featured a large presence of the Nine Trey Bloods gang.

It's already been revealed that the rapper paid an associate to shoot at Chief Keef, while the guilty plea also reveals that he was involved in two other incidents in 2018: an attempted murder on March 20 and a robbery on April 3. He also admitted to his involvement in selling heroin, stating "I and others agreed to sell one kilogram of heroin," in Bushwick.

Complex also points out 6ix9ine suffered depression and post-traumatic stress disorder, brought upon by his stepfather's murder. "I started becoming just rebelling and not showering, like depression stuff," says Tekashi. Instead of taking his prescribed drug Zoloft to alleviate his depression, he opted for his mother's "Mexican remedies" instead.

Tekashi 6ix9ine is currently facing a minimum of 47 years in prison and will be sentenced one year to the day after his plea: Jan. 23, 2020. The judge has confirmed that his cooperation with the government should lead to a sentence below the mandatory minimum.

Read our original story below.

Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine, who is currently incarcerated for federal crime charges, has pleaded guilty to the charges in his criminal case and will cooperate with the government into their probe of the violent street gang Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods reports, The New York Times.

In court, Tekashi 6ix9ine (Daniel Hernandez) admitted that he's a member of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang and said he helped members of the gang attempt to kill a rival to "increase [his] own standing in Nine Trey." In another case, he admits that he "paid a person to shoot at a rival" gang member to scare him. Additionally, he told the judge that the gang engaged in "shooting at people, robbing people and, at times, drug trafficking."

Previously, Tekashi 6ix9ine’s lawyer, Lance Lazzaro, said the rapper was innocent of the charges and described him as "an entertainer who portrays a gangster." However, at the latest hearing in Federal District Court in Manhattan, the rapper pleaded guilty to racketeering conspiracy and eight other charges, resulting to a mandatory minimum prison sentence of 47 years and a maximum sentence of life imprisonment. The plea deal, however, could help the rapper get leniency at his sentencing.

According to The New York Times, the guilty plea was submitted on January 23, but the records were sealed until prosecutors applied to unseal them on Thursday, in respect to Daniel Hernandez and members of his family due to "safety concerns."
