6ix9ine is not coming home for the holidays.
The 23-year-old rapper will remain behind bars after being sentenced to two years in prison following a high-profile federal case.
Tekashi, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, appeared in court for his sentencing hearing on Wednesday after being arrested on racketeering charges on Nov. 18. He was facing a minimum of 47 years in prison after pleading guilty to nine counts in January.
He has already served nearly 13 months in a federal jail, which will count toward his sentence. He will be released by late 2020. Once free, he will be on supervised release for five years, and will have do complete 300 hours community service and pay a $35,000 fine.
6ix9ine cooperated with the feds by testifying against members of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods. His snitching, which prosecutors called “extraordinary” and “extremely useful,” led to the conviction of his former gang affiliates, Anthony “Harv” Ellison and Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack.
