Tekashi69’s former manager gets time served in restaurant shooting
A former manager for trouble-magnet rapper Tekashi69 got time served in his state court restaurant shooting case Monday — as he awaits a potentially serious sentence in a federal gang case.
Kifano Jordan, 36, aka Shotti, previously pleaded guilty for his role in a violent scuffle at Philippe’s on E. 60th St. between Madison and Park Aves. on Oct. 26. A shot was fired by one of Tekashi69's bodyguards, a retired cop who was under attack.
Jordan, dressed in tan jail scrubs for his short court appearance, appeared to flash gang signs while handcuffed in the front as he was escorted to and from federal custody by detectives.
The rapper, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, was charged by the FBI alongside Jordan and several others for gang-related crimes including robberies and shootings.
Jordan faces up to 15 years when he’s sentenced in that case next month.
