He's not alone though... He is behind bars with his recently fired manager, and two other former associates. They are in federal custody after being charged with racketeering, TMZ reports.

Sources told the gossip news site that 6ix9ine, who is currently on probation for his recently closed child sex case, was arrested on Sunday (November 18) night in New York City alongside his ex-manager Shottie. The judge of the sex case told 6ix9ine to "keep his nose clean or else he is going straight to prison" after she gave him a break with probation. In addition to their racketeering charges, the two were also reportedly hit with a few firearms chargers.

Tekashi's arrest came only days after he appeared on "The Breakfast Club" to speak about firing his entire team and the corruption of his touring dates. "I'm letting everybody know that I canceled my whole tour," he said in an Instagram video on Thursday (November 15). "The American dates is not happening. It's not going down." He added that fans can look forward to rescheduled concert dates in the near future. "I fired everybody on my team. I got no manager, I got no booking agent, no PR, I don't got nobody on my team. It's just me," he further explained.
