Tekashi69 Manager Under Investigation For Shootings Before & During Broner Fight

4/25/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tekashi69's manager is under criminal investigation for two shootings that went down the day of Adrien Broner's fight ... and the moments leading up to the incident were caught on tape.

Law enforcement sources tell us 6ix9ine's manager, Tr3yway, is a person of interest in two separate gun-related incidents over the weekend -- one that occurred during the Broner fight, and another that went down just hours earlier on the streets of Brooklyn.

We're told police believe Tr3yway might be the person who fired a shot inside the Barclays Center after a fight broke out with Casanova's crew, based on surveillance video. They also think he might've been the guy who fired two shots 4 hours beforehand, when he was allegedly captured on video shooting at a car following Tekashi's SUV.

Cops tell us the suspect in the footage from both incidents resembles Tr3yway -- who'd been hanging out with 6ix9ine and Foodgod, Jonathan Cheban, over the weekend ... who was filming his new show.

In the footage from outside the arena, obtained by TMZ, you see what eyewitnesses tell us is Tekashi's SUV presumably heading to Barclays. It stops suddenly, and a guy we're told is Tr3yway hops out and runs in the opposite direction ... at which point he allegedly fired. 

Sources say Tekashi got out in the vid, as well, but you can't make out his face -- or hair -- 'cause he's got a hoodie on. Criminal charges have yet to be brought against Tr3yway. Still ... considering Tekashi's crew has been linked to a THIRD shooting this week ... they might wanna lay low. 

We've reached out to Tekashi's camp multiple times for comment ... so far, no word back. 

DJ Khaled and Kevin Hart Go to War Over Heat vs. 76ers!!!

4/24/2018 6:24 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Most polite war ever!!! 

Here's DJ Khaled telling TMZ Sports why the Miami Heat will come back and beat the Philadelphia 76ers in the NBA playoffs. 

And here's Kevin Hart explaining why Khaled's OUT OF HIS DAMN MIND!!!

The Heat are currently down 3-1 to the 76ers -- and Philly can close it out Tuesday night in the City of Brotherly Love. 

But Khaled -- who's a diehard Heat fan -- ain't giving up hope. In fact, he says Miami has that championship pedigree you can't ever count out. 

Enter Kevin Hart (or exit Kevin Hart) who says he's getting on a plane and heading to Philly ... and shocker, he's repping hard for his squad. 

We'll see who emerges victorious Tuesday night ... 

Rich The Kid Lil Uzi Vert Is a 'Dead Friend'

4/24/2018 7:05 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rich the Kid made it pretty clear there's no hope for reconciliation when it comes to his beef with Lil Uzi Vert and all you have to do is listen to the lyrics of his new diss song, "Dead Friends."

We got Rich the Kid out in NYC Monday and asked him about the beef. RTK dodged our question about the feud in favor of rapping the lyrics from his new track and that's telling, especially if you've seen the video.

If you haven't ... RTK puts out a hit, murders and buries what everyone believes is a Lil Uzi look-alike six feet under.

If there was any doubt the guy in the video was supposed to be Lil Uzi, RTK seems to clear that one up. 

Tekashi69's Crew Tied To Another Shooting 2 Men Hit With Bullets

4/23/2018 6:57 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Another one of Tekashi69's crew members are under police investigation for a shooting in which two men were hit -- both with ties to 69's rival, Casanova.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Casanova was filming a music video in NYC's Bedford-Stuyvesant Thursday when at least ten shots were fired at the crew. We're told two men were hit with bullets, but are expected to make full recoveries.

Tekashi and Casanova have a long-standing rivalry. On Saturday night, both crews were in attendance for the Adrien Broner fight at Barclays Center and had a scuffle in an arena hallway. Cops say one shot was fired during the scuffle, and they believe the shooter was an unidentified member of Tekashi's crew. 

Police believe the Broner incident was a continuation of Thursday's violence. They have not yet named any suspects, but the case is under active investigation. 

Tekashi69 Crew Member Allegedly Fired Gun During Adrien Broner Fight

4/22/2018 12:30 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Someone in Tekashi69's crew allegedly fired a gun inside the Barclays Center this weekend, but it had nothing to do with Adrien Broner ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us cops believe an unidentified member of Tekashi's entourage fired a shot inside Barclays Saturday night during an altercation with a rival rap crew headed by Brooklyn-based MC Casanova, who Tekashi's been beefing with online.

We're told police understand the situation as follows ... Tekashi and his guys were heading down a hallway in Barclays to hit up a VIP area in the arena, when they bumped into Casanova and co. along the way. The two crews started pushing and shoving ... and someone in Tekashi's group allegedly discharged one round from a firearm.

Sources tell us a .32 caliber shell casing was recovered afterward, but it was not processed after it was touched by arena staff. We're told no one was hit by the shot, and both crews dispersed ... with Casanova and his pals fleeing the grounds entirely. 

Tekashi and his crew stuck around, though, and they were all interviewed by investigators. Our police sources tell us no one in the group was found to have a weapon on them, however, and nobody was arrested. We're told cops think the man who fired fled the scene.

The silver lining -- if there is any -- is that this apparently had nothing to do with the ongoing beef between Tekashi and Broner, who were talking s*** to each other on social media in the week leading up to the fight. 

Adrien did take a verbal shot at Tekashi after his match against Jessie Vargas was declared a draw ... but it sounds like Tekashi was preoccupied trying to avoid a real shot just outside.

Cops are investigating the matter for further information.

Adrien Broner Won't Accept Draw Against Vargas ... Slams Tekashi69, Too

4/22/2018 10:33 AM PDT

Adrien Broner wouldn't let the judges in his boxing match against Jessie Vargas declare a draw without giving them a piece of his mind ... and not without bashing Tekashi69 either.

Adrien's fight against Vargars Saturday night was announced as a tie after 12 rounds of going at it -- which Adrien seemed disappointed with at first ... and then downright defiant.

The former world champ tried grabbing from announcer Jim Gray to give his two cents on the decision -- Gray wasn't having any of that, though. Adrien did speak his peace, though ... telling Vargas that he clearly beat his ass ... and that his 6ix9ine-looking face proved it.

As we've reported ... Broner and Tekashi have been trading barbs in the week leading up to his fight against Vargas. Broner even threw down a $300k check to counter Tekashi's hypothetical bet that he'd lose this weekend. 

Considering how things turned out  in the end ... we're guessing he's glad he didn't actually go all in on himself.

Kandi Burruss Who Cares Kim's Done with 'RHOA' ... She Hasn't Held a Peach in Years!!!

4/21/2018 8:32 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kandi Burruss doesn't think it's a big deal Kim Zolciak's done with "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" ... because she says her presence was hardly felt anyway.

We got Kandi at LAX Friday night and asked her about Kim telling us she's leaving 'RHOA' for good because it's too stressful. Kandi agrees it's demanding, but for a non-peach holder like Kim ... she's not offering any sympathy.

Kandi also tells us Kim wasn't getting along with any of the Housewives -- except maybe one -- so the ladies are fine with her farewell and more than ready to move on.

As for Kim and Kandi's Bravo spin-off ratings beef -- Burruss sets the record straight ... about how she was simply setting the record straight.

Mobb Deep's Havoc After Prodigy's Death ... Ex-Manager Suing Us Is 'Punk S**t'

4/20/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mobb Deep's Havoc is calling the lawsuit by the rap duo's ex-manager nothing more than a money grab that will hurt the people closest to Prodigy ... less than a year after he died.

Havoc tells us the lawsuit Buck 50 Productions just filed against Mobb Deep is sickening because he's doing it after Prodigy's tragic death last summer in Las Vegas. He says all the suit will do, IF Buck 50 wins, is take food out of the mouths of Prodigy's kids.

As we first reported, Buck 50 claims it's owed half a million bucks for management services.

Havoc doesn't seem too concerned though, legally speaking ... and says he can prove they never did a damn thing for his career. In fact, he's entertaining a countersuit.

Adrien Broner Matches Tekashi's $300k Fight Bet ... Says He's 'Pulling Up'

4/18/2018 6:47 AM PDT
Breaking News

The beef between Adrien Broner and Tekashi69 keeps getting crazier ... with Broner now saying he'll take Tekashi's $300k bet on his fight this weekend.

And he's got the check to prove it. 

Before he hopped on a plane for New York on Tuesday, Broner shared a photo of a signed check for "Daniel Hernandez" (Tekashi's legal name) ... that came with a serious message for the NYC rapper. 

"Just heard (6ix9ine) wanna make a small bet for my fight April 21st... well look your check is made bro just have my money when I beat the sh*t out Jessie Vargas."

"See you soon I’m pulling up to New York right now."

It's the same threat Broner made on Monday -- after he says Tekashi called him a "clown" on IG. Tekashi immediately clapped back, saying he'd throw 300 racks on "this p***y ass n**ga" losing to Vargas.

FYI, Broner vs. Vargas is this Saturday on Showtime ... but we wouldn't be surprised if we saw these 2 duke it out first.

Danielle Bregoli Backs Cardi and Shades Nicki For Billboard Awards

4/18/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Danielle Bregoli says she's already winning by being nominated by Billboard Music Awards as the Top Rap Female Artist with Cardi B and Nicki Minaj.

We got Danielle -- who goes by Bhad Bhabie in the music world -- on the heels of her being nominated for the prestigious award Tuesday along with arguably 2 of the biggest rappers in the game right now, and she was feeling pretty confident.

Danielle thinks she's the real winner at the end of the day -- the kid's just 15 years old, after all -- even though she concedes Cardi will probably walk away with the actual trophy. She explains why by taking multiple shots at Nicki ... and it ain't pretty, just petty.

Our photog also asked her about her fight with Woah Vicky and Lil Tay. As the big and bhad like to say ... no comment.  

Adrien Broner Didn't Cancel Event Over Tekashi69 Threat ... Showtime Says

4/17/2018 12:38 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Adrien Broner did not back out of an NYC event to promote his fight over threats made by East Coast rapper Tekashi69 ... at least that's what Showtime tells TMZ Sports

Broner was supposed to attend an open workout on Wednesday to drum up publicity for his fight with Jessie Vargas ... but those plans were abruptly scrapped earlier this week.

And since Broner and Tekashi have been at war on social media, some people wondered if Broner feared the feud was about to turn violent since Tekashi claims to be a well-connected Blood ... especially in NYC.

But a rep for Showtime Sports tells us that's simply not the case ... Broner didn't back out of anything -- instead, Showtime's team changed the publicity strategy and canceled the workout for other media events.

Still, don't expect the feud to die down anytime soon ... these guys HATE each other. 

Tekashi69 Adrien Broner Is a 'P***y' Responds to Violent Threat

4/16/2018 2:35 PM PDT
Breaking News

Tekashi69 ain't backin' down after Adrien Broner said he'd "pull up" on the rapper ... daring the boxing star to come see him when he touches down in Brooklyn.

Broner says 6ix9ine started the beef by calling him a "clown" over Instagram -- which set A.B. off. 

"Ey 6ix9ine, don’t be commenting no f*ck sh*t under my pictures, boy. Talkin’ bout clown, n**ga ... I’m about to pull up on you, n**ga," Broner said.

"I ain’t one of these rap n**gas you be trollin’ with n**ga, quit playin’ with me, n**ga."

As soon as Tekashi got wind of his call-out, he clapped back -- calling A.B. a "P***Y" and saying he would bet AT LEAST $100K on him losing to Jessie Vargas this Saturday at the Barclays Center.

"CHECK IN WHEN YOU GET TO BROOKLYN TOO. KING OF MY CITY," he added.

Can't say we're too surprised 6ix9ine's steppin' to a trained killer ... remember his crazy brawl at LAX?!

Real talk, though -- hope these guys can squash it before things escalate. Broner's got a hell of a rap sheet, too.
