The 8 count rises to 9, just as Tekashi's "snitchery" goes public.
The count is up to 9, with the span of an hour: Tekashi 6ix9ine's public outing as a Federal Informant has been hard to keep tabs on. It's not as the so-called experts following the case weren't predisposed to suspicion over Tekashi's malleability - and even at that, various degrees of permeability exist among the most "scrupulous" of criminals entering the System.
The Rico Act was, after all, created with the purpose of burying the Cosa Nostra back when they reigned supreme - so it's reasonable to assume a halfway thug like Tekashi would bend under similar pretences.
Since confirming the plea deal, TMZ is in the process of obtaining even more information regarding the faulty indictment. A notary in the courthouse provided the media outlet with a loose transcript of Tekashi's plea hearing this past week. According to the transcripts, Tekashi admits to helping the Nine Trey Bloods in an effort to "increase (his) own standing" on a promotional level.
Tekashi also admitted culpability in the failed attempt at Chief Keef's life. "I paid a person to shoot at a rival member of Nine Trey to scare him. The shooting took place in Manhattan. I did this to maintain or increase my own standing in Nine Trey." Tekashi's inference of Chief Keef as a rival of the gang is curious at best. Most hip-hop fans view his feud with Chief Keef's feud as a personal affront, even if he used "gang resources."
"I apologize to the Court, to anyone who was hurt, to my family, friends and fans for what I have done and who I have let down," Tekashi apologized, in a showing of remorse connected to his self-professed Heroin trafficking. Tekashi is facing a minimum sentence of 47 years in prison, so this is likely only the beginning of his Federally-sponsored snitchery. Remember, Tekashi did plead to all 9 counts, all committed to writing.
