Controversial SoundCloud rapper 6ix9ine's trial date has been set; it will begin September 4th of next year and a hearing has been scheduled for January 22nd. 6ix9ine's attorney is planning to apply for bail directly to the trial judge, according to TMZ. Tekashi69 entered a not guilty plea.
As we reported, 6ix9ine and five others were arrested earlier this month on racketeering and firearms charges. His attorney argues that 6ix9ine is "an entertainer who portrays a 'gangster image' to promote his music."
Homeland Security Investigations Special Agent in Charge Angel M. Melendez said "This criminal enterprise has no business in our city, and we will continue to work with our partners to ensure that Nine Trey crew members, including the more well-known Tekashi 6ix9ine, are in a place where they cannot inflict further violence on our communities."
