Tekashi 6ix9ine's ex-manager Kifano 'Shotti' Jordan sentenced to 15 years in prison

Disgraced rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine's ex-manager has been sent to prison for 15 years.

Kifano "Shotti" Jordan was sentenced on Friday (local time), six months after pleading guilty to firearms charges, TMZ reports.

Shotti had been arrested around the same time as Tekashi 69 in November 2018 after they were accused of taking part in an armed robbery.

Tekashi 69, an admitted sex offender known for the album Dummy Boy, hasn't been sentenced yet but it's looking like he will receive a shorter sentence on his charges after striking a deal with prosecutors.

He pleaded guilty to racketeering conspiracy and eight other charges in February, which would normally mean a minimum 47 years in prison or a maximum of life.

But prosecutors said at the time he was looking at a sentence below the minimum if he agrees to cooperate.

The move caused controversy in the rap community and Tekashi 69 was ridiculed for working with prosecutors in favour of a lighter sentence.

He was labelled "Snitch9ine" and mocked by fellow rapper 50 Cent for the move.

His sentencing is reportedly scheduled for the end of January 2020.
