Tekashi69 Facing Life In Prison | TMZ Live

Problems are piling up for Tekashi69 as he sits in prison -- his old booking agents are threatening to sue AND claim the money he's trying to use for bail is cash ...

TEKASHI69 IS NOW FACING LIFE IN

PRISON BASED ON THE INDICTMENT THE SIX CHARGES THAT HE WAS HIT WITH BY FEDERAL PROSECUTORS. HARVEY: I MEAN THESE ARE RACKETEERING. CHARLES: RACKETEERING -- HARVEY: DRUGS. CHARLES: THEY CLAIMED THAT HE WAS ORDERING PEOPLE TO TAKE OUT RIVAL GANGMEMBERS, THAT THEY WERE SELLING DRUGS. HARVEY: THEY WERE WEAPONS. CHARLES: ALL SORTS OF THINGS. AND THAT THEY USED WEAPONS DURING THE COMMISSION OF SEVERAL CRIMES. HE COULD BE FACING UP TO LIFE IN PRISON. HARVEY: THIS WHOLE PROBATION THAT WE TALKED ABOUT LAST WEEK IS SMALL POTATOES COMPARED TO THIS. SO THERE IS A PLOT TWIST IN THIS AND SEVERAL PLOT 'TISES. NUMBER ONE, RIGHT NOW, HE IS IN GENERAL POPULATION IN JAIL. CHARLES: YES. HARVEY: THAT IS BIZARRE. >> WHICH IS ALSO A BIG DEAL BECAUSE WE LEARNED THAT THERE

WAS A TARGET ON HIS BACK JUST BEFORE HE WAS ARRESTED AND ON SATURDAY, FEDERAL AGENTS BROUGHT HIM IN. THEY SAID UREBS KNOW WHAT, WE HAVE LEARNED THROUGH WIRETAPPING, SOME OF THE PEOPLE WHO YOU FIRED LAST WEEK WANT TO KILL YOU. LET US TAKE YOU INTO CUSTODY, WE CAN PROTECT YOU. HE SAID NO. NOW HE HAS BEEN ARRESTED AND IN GENERAL POPULATION, NO PROTECTION. HARVEY: SO SATURDAY THEY CALL HIM IN AND WARN HIM. WHAT WAS THE WORD, EXTREMELY VIOLENT -- SUPER VIOLATE, THEY WERE GOING TO SUPER VIOLATE HIM, IT SOUNDS CODE TO, FOR MURDER. THEY CALL HIM IN AND HE JUST SAYS I WANT OUT. AND THEN THE NEXT DAY, THEY ARREST HIM. IT SOUNDS LIKE THEY WERE GOING TO ARREST HIM ANYWAY, BUT THEY WANTED TO MAKE SURE HE DIDN'T GET KILLED BEFORE HE WAS ARRESTED.

CHARLES: THEY WANTED TO MAKE SURE THERE AREN'T INNOCENT PEOPLE -- ACCORDING TO PROSECUTO$ PROSECUTORS, THEY HEARD THAT TEKASHI WAS GOING TO A CASINO, FOX WOODS. THEY WERE GOING TO ARREST HIM ANYWAY. TO PUT HIM IN GENERAL POPULATION$ POPULATION -- CHARLES: I DON'T KNOW IF THEY'RE TRYING TO SCARE HIM. VAN: ARE THEY TRYING TO PERSUADE HIM OR MAKE MINIMUM FLIP, I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON. GENERAL POPULATION SEEMS LIKE A NIGHTMARE FOR SOMEONE WHO HAS RUBBED PEOPLE THE WRONG WAY. HARVEY: YOU THINK ABOUT IT, A, YOU PUT HIM IN GENERAL POPULATION. B, THEY TAKE HIM IN FOR A WARNING THE DAY BEFORE THEY ARREST HIM, I'M NOT SAYING IT IS, IT SMELLS A LITTLE BIT LIKE THEY WANT THIS GUY TO FLIP. VAN: WITHOUT A DOUBT.

IT SEEMS LIKE HE WAS OFFERED SOMETHING AND PRESENTED WITH SOMETHING, IT YOU -- IF YOU DON'T DO THIS, WE'RE GOING TO ARREST YOU. CHARLES: A SCARY VENTURE FOR HIM. HE HASN'T HAD HIS BAIL HEARING YET. IT WAS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN ON TUESDAY, IT WAS PUSHED BACK, NOW IT'S WEDNESDAY. IN THE MEANTIME, HE IS SITTING IN A FEDERAL HOLDING FACILITY IN BROOKLYN WHICH HAS A PRETTY NASTY REPUTATION. I BELIEVE THE REPORTS WE READ, EXTREMELY DANGEROUS AND THE INMATES THERE ARE VIOLENT OR ESCAPE PRONE. >> AND IT'S NO SECRET, TOO, GUYS, THROUGH THESE PROCEEDINGS AND THESE COURT FILINGS, WE LEARNED HE 100%, AT LEAST ACCORDING TO PROSECUTORS, WAS A GANGMEMBER. HE DIDN'T REP IT FOR HIP-HOP CRED OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. HE HAD HIP-HOP TIES. THERE ARE GUYS IN PRISON ON THE

OPPOSITE SIDE. HARVEY: I KNOW. YET HE IS IN GENERAL -- BOY, I TELL YOU, THIS IS JUST SHOCKING TO ME AND I THINK THERE IS STUFF WE DON'T KNOW CLEARLY, BUT ONE THING -- CHARLES: HE WAS IN COURT, WAS IT MONDAY? NO. HE HAD A COURT APPEARANCE ON MONDAY AND IT WAS -- THE WAY IT WAS DESCRIBED TO US, WE HAD A PRODUCER IN THE COURT AND WE SAID, HE SEEMED VERY CALM, LISTENED TO EVERYTHING, HE WAS IN SHACKLES AND SEEMED VERY CALM. THE OTHER PEOPLE THERE SEEMED A LITTLE MORE ON EDGE WITH WHAT WAS GOING ON. TAKE WHAT YOU WILL FROM THAT. HARVEY: THIS SOUNDS SO VIOLENT AND DANGEROUS. IT JUST SOUNDS, WOW. CHARLES: THIS IS JUST THE FIRST STEP FOR HIM. LIKE WE SAID, ONCE HE GETS TO TRIAL, HE IS FACING LIFE IN PRISON.

HARVEY: RIGHT. CALLER: OK, I'M SASHA FROM DETROIT. THIS STORY IS SUPER STICKY. HE WENT TO THE BREAKFAST CLUB A COUPLE DAYS AGO AFTER HE JUST FIRED ALL HIS TEAM AND ALL OF THAT STUFF. ON THE BREAKFAST CLUB HE SHARED A LOT OF STUFF. THERE WERE THREATS THEY WERE GOING TO SEE HIS MOM, HIS MOM'S ADDRESS WAS LEAKED. SO I THINK TEKASHI IS REALLY A PRODUCT OF HIS ENVIRONMENT. THIS ISN'T ALL RAP STUFF. HE IS REALLY A GANG MEMBER. BEING IN GENERAL POPULATION, I DON'T SEE THAT BEING VERY GOOD FOR HIM AT ALL. HE IS VERY HEADSTRONG AND PRIDEFUL, MAYBE THAT'S A CHOICE OF HIS. CHARLES: COULD BE. SPEAKING OF THE BREAKFAST CLUB INTERVIEW, THE FEDS REFERRED TO THAT, THEY SAID THAT THE PEOPLE WHO WANT TO SUPER VIOLATE YOU ARE PISSED ABOUT WHAT YOU SAID ON THE BREAKFAST CLUB BECAUSE HE

BASICALLY POINTED THE FINGER AS HIS INNER CIRCLE AND SAID THESE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO ARE TURNING ON ME.
