Kifano “Shotti” Jordan, Tekashi 6ix9ine's former manager, was sentenced on Friday (Sept. 6) to 15 years in prison more than a year after pleading guilty to one count of firearm possession during a crime and one count of firearm discharge during a crime, according to a document by the Southern District of New York.

In addition to the prison term, he was also sentenced to five years of supervised release. Jordan was arrested in Nov. 2018, and was originally charged with six counts.  

The two separate incidents happened in April 2018, both of which also involved the "FEFE" rapper. On April 3, 2018, Jordan, Tekashi and a few others robbed a rival gang member, with Jordan waving a pistol. Three weeks later, an individual approached Jordan, the rapper and other associates at a restaurant. After the individual shouted a derogatory word at them, the group left the restaurant drove away. The individual and another person followed them, leading to Jordan shooting their car twice.

Back in February, Tekashi pleaded guilty on Saturday to nine counts in his criminal case, three months after he was charged with three counts of firearms offense, one count of racketeering conspiracy, three counts of violent crime in aid of racketeering, one count of narcotics trafficking and another count of firearms offense.
