WATCH: Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine sentenced to 2 years in prison for racketeering, firearms and drug offenses – BREAKING

(CNN) Tekashi 6ix9ine, the flamboyant Brooklyn rapper who pleaded guilty to racketeering and testified against several former gang associates, was sentenced to 2 years in prison on Wednesday.

He was also sentenced to five years supervised release plus 300 hours of community service.
His attorney Lance Lazzaro had asked the court to sentence him to time served, saying that he has a limited criminal history and that he provided “extraordinary assistance and cooperation with the government,” according to a court filing. He gave the government an “insider’s view” of the Nine Trey gang, Lazzaro wrote, and even testified in court against two fellow gang members.
