Sixnine, despite his success, his fortune and the many awards he has won, has recorded many convictions and lawsuits during his life. However, the star has never lost the taste for music and comes back stronger every time.
Abduction of a minor
In 2015, Sixnine was charged with statutory rape thanks to a video in which he was in touch with a 13-year-old girl. The rapper pleaded guilty at the time. Nevertheless, the star testifies that he did not have sexual intercourse with the girl and that he did not know that she was under 18 years old. The judge thus forbids Sixnine to broadcast on social networks the various images or videos sexually explicit and violent that show women or children.
Likewise, he warns him not to commit any risk in the following years. In addition, Sinine will have to write a letter to the victim to apologize. In addition, Sixnine will also have to pass an exam called General Educational Development. If he fails to comply with these conditions, he will be sentenced to three years in prison. Unfortunately, Sixnine failed this exam because of the difficulty of the scientific subjects of the exam.
Thanks to his lawyer, he was able to get a second chance from the judge. April 18, 2018 was the retrial date obtained by his advocate. This date was then postponed, as the rapper’s exam results were unavailable. In addition, another complaint arises in 2020. It is still the same little girl of 13 years who accuses Sixnine for the same facts. The complaint was based on a sexual assault of a minor.
Arrest and collaboration of Sixnine with the justice
Sixnine was arrested on November 18, 2018 with a total of 17 charges. He was not only suspected of drug trafficking, but also of robbery and belonging to a violent group in New York. The rapper was facing 47 years in prison with no parole. The charges were extremely serious and could lead to life imprisonment for the rapper. After being arrested, Sixnine completely denied the charges. However, during the December 2019 trial, the rapper pleads guilty.
In order to receive a reduced sentence, he cooperates with the justice. Thus, he denounces and condemns the other members of the group. This allows him to take only two years in prison. On the other hand, the artist had regrets about his past, especially about being a member of this violent group. He testified at his trial and had explained the risks of his decision and that the group would certainly come after him.
To ensure his safety, the justice system offered him the witness protection program. Sixnine initially refused this protection, but with the death threats he was receiving, the artist was forced to accept. Before his trial, he was first detained at the Detropolitant Detention Center in Brooklyn, New York. He was transferred to another detention center kept secret and unknown by the media to protect him.
He was released on April 2, 2020 to serve the remainder of his sentence under house arrest. This decision was made because of the ravages of the covid-19 pandemic. Several other prisoners were in the meantime released and transferred to house arrest. The artist suffered from asthma and became vulnerable to this disease. Sixnine finishes his sentence and is free again since July 31, 2020.
Some rivalries and clashes of Sixnine

Chief Keef is a Chicago rapper who has also had rivalries with Sixnine. In early June 2018, Chief was the victim of an incident in which some people shot at him. Fortunately, the artist miraculously escaped with zero injuries. Because of the quarrels he often had with this musician, Sixnine was subjected to an investigation for possible involvement in the incident.
Sixnine was suspected of trying to murder Chief. Later, the rapper decided to visit his rival and homeless people during a trip to Chicago. This gesture of generosity and simplicity of Sixnine was appreciated by many.
Pi’erre Bourne, the producer of the Gummo video would have sent the beat of the song to Trippie Redd. This pushed Sixnine to remove the sound without permission by deleting the tag of Pi’erre before publishing it. This led to a big disagreement between the two personalities.
In 2020, Sixnine was fiercely attacked by Meek Mill on Twitter. The latter made death threats and called Sixnine a rat. In addition, he stated that the rapper would have thrown his little family out to pasture. In response, Sixnine asked him to imagine that he just had a baby and that he was drunk because of a Mexican with rainbow hair. To finish, he asks him to imagine that Nicki is not there. As a reminder, Nicki Minaj had accused Meek Mill of a sexual violation. It had a great rivalry between these two people too.
