The Nine Trey Bloods, are a New York based gang, also known as TreyWay and Tekashi69 has been involved with them for a while now. While Tekashi has had many slips where he could’ve been jailed, it looks like this time there’s no escape from the judgement. According to a prosecuting US attorney, the rapper faces 32 years in jail for racketeering and other offences.
