Tekashi former manager Kifano Jordan known as “Shotti” remains behind bars for his role in the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods racketeering case.
In a court filing viewed by Complex on Wednesday (October 20), documents show Shotti claiming he’s unable to retain his own counsel and is seeking a court-appointed attorney.
Shotti believes he only has $1,200 in cash or in a bank account, according to a separate financial affidavit. He goes on to state that he hasn’t earned any money in the past year and that his last month of job will be August 2021.
“The petitioner urgently need the assistance of legal counsel to properly prepare the issues and supporting facts and laws to support each issue that will be brought before this honorable court,” according to the case filing.
Shotti said that he couldn’t completely comprehend the legalities of his case because of pandemic limitations that kept him in isolation with few visitors.
Shotti joined Akademiks for an episode of Ak’s Off the Record podcast in August,where Shotti doubled down on claims that he never stole money from 6ix9ine and had sex with his ex-girlfriend and mother of his child, Sara
Molina. Shotti even boasted he went into jail a millionaire and he’s going to leave one, which doesn’t line up with the finances of his aforementioned legal filing.
Shotti is currently facing a 15 year federal prison sentence.
