Tekashi 6ix9ine’s El Paso concert officially cancelled amid racketeering, firearm charges

El Paso News

Tekashi 6ix9ine’s El Paso concert has officially been called off as the rapper remains in federal custody on racketeering and firearm charges.

As KTSM previously reported, he was scheduled to make a tour stop at the El Paso County Coliseum on Dec. 13.

According to reports, the rapper, whose birth name is Daniel Hernandez, is facing up to life in prison for multiple alleged offenses.

Hernandez was already on probation for a 2015 arrest for allegedly using a child in a sexual performance.

He had also agreed to stay out of trouble for one year as part of a disorderly conduct plea deal he took to avoid an assault charge in a case involving a police officer. 

According to the El Paso County Coliseum, customers will be able to get refunds at the point of purchase.
