The legal trouble that Tekashi 6ix9ine has found himself in has been documented thoroughly since he was initially locked up. However, the status of his Tr3yway affiliates remains a little muddy. Since they aren't as globally popular as Tekashi, less news is circulating regarding Shotti and the others that were nabbed in the racketeering case. Now, a new report has just broken about Shotti and it looks like 6ix9ine's former manager will be looking for legal representation shortly.
According to Complex, attorney Scott E. Leemon requested to be removed from the case as he wishes to no longer represent Kifano "Shotti" Jordan. Leemon says that he initially appeared in court on Shotti's behalf because his family had promised that a retainer fee would be paid. The money has apparently still not been sent. Leemon said, "It has now been several weeks since that appearance [in court] and I still have not received payment." According to court documents, the attorney visited Shotti to inform him that he wishes to be removed from counsel, which he did not oppose to.
Shotti was among the men busted with 6ix9ine for racketeering and weapons charges. They face a maximum sentence of life in prison. Tekashi's trial is currently set to begin in September 2019.
