New York Rapper 6ix9ine has pleaded guilty to nine counts.
The artist was among those arrested last year on racketeering and weapons charges. Among the nine counts included in the plea are multiple charges of racketeering, conspiracy, and weapons-related offenses. The plea was entered Jan. 23 but not disclosed until an unsealing on Feb. 1.
In court documents reviewed by Complex on Friday, 6ix9ine—real name Daniel Hernandez—was described as having “participated in the operation and management of the Enterprise [i.e. Nine Trey]” and participated in “unlawful and other activity in furtherance of the conduct of the Enterprise’s affairs.” 6ix9ine “and others known and unknown” are further alleged to have “knowingly” violated United States racketeering laws.
The guilty plea includes admission of aiding and abetting in an attempted shooting on chief keef on June 2, 2018.

Sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 24, 2020. A mandatory minimum 47-year sentence would have been in play if not for 6ix9ine’s cooperation.
“I apologize to the Court, to anyone who was hurt, to my family, friends, and fans for what I have done and who I have let down,” 6ix9ine told the court when entering his plea. During the same hearing, Judge Paul Engelmayer said 6ix9ine is “cooperating against multiple violent people associated with the same criminal enterprise.”
