TEKASHI 69'S FORMER MANAGER GETS 15 YEAR IN PRISON AFTER SHOOTOUT: Tekashi 69's former manager Kifano "Shotti" Jordan was sentenced to 15 years behind bars last week. Reports say that Jordan pleaded guilty for his involvement in gang related shootings and other crimes last year. Judge Paul Engelmayer said, “Through a combination of sheer luck and bad aim, no one died.” Jordan also apologized for his part in the crimes during the sentencing, saying, “I want to apologize to my close friends and my family, especially my sons since I won’t be there for them. There has been a lot of violence I committed. I take full responsibility. I guarantee you won’t ever see me in court again. I apologize to the victims of my crimes. I apologize to their families.” One of those crimes included an armed robbery in a New York City hotel in April 2018. According to reports, Tekashi was in an SUV taping the whole thing. Later that month, Jordan also fired shots at a rival gang who was tailing Tekashi’s car.
